I just got my C3000 and a USB enclosure and am planning on using it to play music on my C3000. Spare me the power requirements and "Buy an iPod" remarks please.

I got the USB drive working perfectly and automounting (used instructions from another thread) and I can access it fine. However, the Music Player doesn't list it. It will list a CF card and an SD card, but not the USB drive. The Text Editor, Movie Player, and the Files tab all show it fine, albeit as a Folder and named /dev/sda1.

FYI, I'm mounting it as /mnt/usbhdd.

In case anyone cares, I "fixed" this by symlinking my usb hard drive mount point to /mnt/card. So now when I plug in my USB HD the Music Player says there's an SD card inserted.

The funny thing is that all of the other apps (Files tab, Text Editor, Movie Player) still say "Storage /dev/sda1" and don't show an SD card. Looks like the file opener for the Music Player is just crippled.

Good findings PC,

Is the sda1 mount listed in /etc/mtab?

The Sharp ROMs used to read from this file to work out what was mounted (it is supposed to be a symlink, but sometimes becomes unlinked).

Yep, it's listed in /etc/mtab. I can only assume that all of the other apps read from there to find the USB HD as they list it as "/dev/sda1" instead of "SD Card". I can only assume that the music player has hard-coded mount points in it. This is *sort of* understandable as the file browser uses ID3 tag values when displaying the files, but it really *should* be able to read /etc/mtab. ::sigh:: I can't wait until I get OZ running on this thing.
