View Full Version : USB MP3 player...
01-20-2007, 03:23 AM
Well I am having a fun time figuring out where I went wrong... I had everything working just 30 min ago. I connected my RCA-LYRA media player and it was found I changed the files on it... and everything was working, well I decided to try it again... this time I was able to take the files off, well so I thought, the player is still stating its 98% used... but I only had the LYRA sys file on it...
Is there some way to properly delete the whole device... maybe a new format?

Is it a MP3 player /w a USB port or is it one of those thumb drives turned iPod wanta be?
Doing a reformat is always possible on a hard drive but one should be able to remove files from it as long as its a file system it has write access to it. Like FAT* or ext* instead of NTFS / Reiserfs.

Its a MP3 player with a data cable, the connection to the player is a minicnection... I forget what they called it. And the male connection is of course USB. Now for whatever reason the files are NOT in the drive... but the mem is still used, what could i use to scrub this? just a drive partitioning program?

Just the Konqueror browser preset by BSD I click properties and it states the mem is still in use... I restarted:P I unpluged the thing and tried to refresh... still shows up.but no files... you think the Konsole would show differant?

Considering it tells me the sizes of my hard drive partitions all ether to small or to big when I click on storage media on my test box. I'm included to consider it poor on brain power.
If you know the mount point (like /media/<playername> or /mnt/da<number>s<number>/) you can open konsole after its mounted and type
to see a summery in human friendly sizes of the free disk space on all mounted partitions. And use
du -ch /where/its/mounted/
To get a file by file list of every file on the thing with its size and a total at the end (in human friendly sizes).
What I mean by 'human friendly sizes' is the '-h' part tells it to round off to kilo/mega/giga bytes instead of using a fixed size.

well I tried that:P it stated no such file or directory. but I open the player in Konq, and sure enough there is the .dat file and a .trash1001 file...
