    Sansa e140 and Mounting

    Hello Group.

    I got a new little mp3 player. Sandisk Sansa e140.

    It is USB and does not require sync software .. that is the main reason why I got it ...
    It mounts like a flash drive... at least on windows...

    On FC4 ... when I plug it in.. it is listed as
    Disk /dev/sda: 1041 MB, 1041760256 bytes
    139 heads, 26 sectors/track, 563 cylinders
    Units = cylinders of 3614 * 512 = 1850368 bytes

    Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System
    /dev/sda1 * 1 563 1017328 b W95 FAT32
    [root@qc ~]#

    When I mount it to a dir as root.. I am not able to write out to it...

    How can I have it:
    1. Auto mount - without being root. My ipod does this...
    2. If I cannot get it to auto mount .. how do I get write access if I mount it under root?

    Thank you.
    trg

    in /etc/fstab, add this line: (but then it always must be the first USB mass storage device to be plugged in...)
    Code:
    /dev/sda1		 /media/mp3/ vfat users,owner,rw,umask=000 0 0
    Then it will automount under /media/mp3. Make sure /media/mp3 exists beforehand.
    btw, just a tip: Use one of the audio-convert scripts (mine has mp3 > mp3 support, it's designed for MP3 players) to convert your files to 96kbps MP3. I have 150 songs on my 512 MB mp3, so yous can have about 300
