Default ns-da2g, ubuntu edgy

when i plug in my insignia mp3 player it shows up on desktop as insigniamp3, but when i click it, only CONFIG & SYS_CONF.DNC show up. when i go into the CONFIG folder i see CONFIG.TCC. i can't open the .tcc or .dnc files cuz they're unknown. i typed lsusb & it only shows my wireless adapter. i tried plugging it in different usb slots & the same thing happens.

the player didn't come with any drivers, just a best buy rhapsody cd which i threw away. :P

also 2 questions:

how do u check the mp3 player's filesystem?

do i need gnomad2 to make this work? i installed it but it gave an error about no jukebox in usb or something.

You Shouldn't need anything extra to make it work. In fact, it sounds like it's working fine right now, if you can access the config files. So I don't think it's a driver issue. Did you have anything else on it? Have you tried dragging a song to it yet?

It's been a while since I've used Linux... but I believe if you type "cat /etc/fstab" in the terminal, it will show you the file system... It should be FAT16. But might be FAT32, can't remember...

Looks like ubuntu was just supermounting it wrong when you tried. Maybe when you reformatted it did something that made it more apparent to linux what the partition actually was.
