    Are you using a USB flash drive? Could be a hardware issue. Can you give more details?

    It would really help if you'd mention what device, what distribution/version of Linux. And how does Windows say "can't find out device" when your OS is Linux?

    See my last response. Give some information to work with. How is your problem the same anyway? We have no clue about what the problem is. Unless your Linux machine gives Windows errors as well of course. Why can't you access it? What MP3 player? What image?

    I think he meant he can see the Icon of the MP3 player appearing like a drive.

    But he uses Linux, at least that's what I think since he has the same problem. Though if you're right, what message appears when he double clicks the icon? Really, people should give more info, we're not psychic here.
