Default creative zen v plus

Hello. I have a Creative Zen V Plus MP3 player. I cannot seem to
open it, or mount it. I tried installing gnomad2, but it cannot find
the usb device. I tried mounting /dev/sda1, but this also did not work.

My system does see it:

mark@debian:~$ lsusb
Bus 001 Device 006: ID 041e:4152 Creative Technology, Ltd

I'm using Debian Etch.

Mark

I've tried and failed. I think you need the gnomad2 out of unstable
(sorry, can't recall why) but when I tried that the resulting mixed
system, for me, gave problems with a hanging Gnome so I had to
reinstall etch from scratch

In doing some research, I think it stems the fact that "Newer devices
using the Microsoft MTP (Media Transfer Protocol) are NOT
supported," (taken from the description for libnjb-cil package.) The
newer gnomad2 package in lenny and/or sid, apparently has support for
this (with the libmtp package). I tried installing the libmtp package
on my Etch system, and then reconfiguring the gnomad2 package, but
failed. I then considered installing the gnomad2 package from lenny
repositories, but backed away when I saw the amount of changes which
would be required (and, considering your experience, I feel I made the
right decision).

Instead, I just installed it from source, using instructions at
http://www.linuxquestions.org/questions/linux-newbie-8/creative-zen-touch-with-plays-for-sure-on-kubuntu-is...a-camera-518976/,
which worked (however, there's an issue with permissions somewhere,
because I can only connect to the usb device as root.)

I found some instructions for changing permissions at
http://newbiedoc.berlios.de/wiki/Managing_a_Creative_Zen_mp3_jukebox_with_Gnomad2;
so, I'm going to mess around and see if I can make it work with a
normal user.

Normally I don't like installing source programs on my Etch system,
but there is a great feeling of satisfaction that I feel when I get
them working (kind of like cooking your own meal rather than ordering
takeout).
