Problem mounting Edirol recorder.

I’m having problems mounting an Edirol R-09HR digital audio recorder (as a USB drive, to read the recording files) on a system running openSUSE 11.2.

fdisk or other partitioning tools recognize the device as a “W95 FAT32” drive with a filesystem code of 0b, apparently. I was under the impression that mounting this as a vfat file system should work, but the mount command dies complaining “FAT: bogus number of reserved sectors” and “VFS: Can’t find a valid FAT file system.”

This happens even with a freshly formatted card in the recorder. The device mounts properly with Windows XP systems and late-model Ubuntu/Kubuntu systems, Any clews as to what I’m doing wrong here?

TIA maabaum

Oh well <unspeakable act> the <unspeakable thing> anyway. I had a recurring error in the device path in the mount command that was causing the problem. Forget it.

maabaum :\
