    Your Questions could be a bit confusing but anyway an MP3 player is detected as a removable drive so just plug it in and delete the file but if your looking for scanners I suggets google.

    What is the file system on your MP3 player? Like Fat32, what?

    Hi [I.R.A]_FBi

    PVTCaboose1337 is right, the file system on your mp3 player isn't recognized by linux (it SHOULD auto mount otherwise), if your mp3 player has NTFS file system, you can start from here: http://www.linux-ntfs.org/doku.php.

    Hope this helps. ;)

    When you say you are using a bootdisk, i believe you are using the live cd version of kubuntu?

    If that it's the case, that may be the problem, the drivers to mount the partitions are not installing in live cd mode...

    8.10 reads ntfs just fine.
    Try opening gparted(something like that can't remember the name of the partion editor atm)
    What model is the MP3 player?
    After plugging it in try going to media in /
