MP3 Jukebox Hacking

It looks like I can upgrade the firmware on my Archos Jukebox. Its open source to boot. Cool.

I don't think you can do this with your iPod.

Emboldened by my success "upgrading" the firmware I resolved once more to get the thing to mount on my Debian box. A little light googling led me to the hotplug package. After apt-get'ting it I plugged in the Jukebox, turned it on and - nothing. I had added the appopriate line to my /etc/fstab file;

/dev/sda1    /mnt/archos    auto    rw,user,noauto    0  0

But all I got was an error message saying no medium found.

As a last resort I rebooted - and everything worked. Woo, and furthermore, hoo.

Hope that answers your question Vale.
