It should say more after that. Can you post it?

It looks like your player has a number of areas of storage e:g SD
card, flash card, it's own internal memory etc. and they all have an
associated device node:

$ ls /dev | grep da

You can manipulate these devices with camcontrol(8) E.g:

# camcontrol stop 1:0:0
# camcontrol rescan 1:0:0
# camcontrol load 1:0:0

should initialise /dev/da0 (the SD card?)


# mount -t msdosfs /dev/da0 /mnt/dos

will mount it & you can read/write files from it.

When you're finished:

# umount /mnt/dos
# camcontrol eject 1:0:0

If you have problems, post back the signifigant parts of
/var/log/messages and any other errors.
