I’m new to openSUSE, having spent much time drinking the M$ koolaid prior. Now I’m trying to set my home PC up to give it a fair test with Linux. So, please forgive my ignorance.
I have a Motorola SLVR L7 phone, running iTunes on it. When I plug the phone in while in openSUSE 11, the display changes to indicate that it is connected as a storage device (it contains a 1GB transflash card that shows up as a removable drive in Windows). Then on the computer I am presented with a screen stating that new media was found (it names the volume name I gave the card) and asking me what I would like to do; view the files on the device, transfer photos, or nothing. When I choose to view the files, it tells me “invalid filesystem type” and shows nothing. If I open my computer and go to media, I see the device, and it has the image of an iPod, but right-clicking it and trying to mount it results in the same error.
I believe that this should basically just show up as a removable memory card, right? So, what am I missing? I would love to try out this Amarok program, but without at least being able to transfer my music to and from the device, I’m pretty much stuck.
I have an issue with dual monitors too, but that’s a post for another day…
I really appreciate your help! Thanks in advance!
