Mount an USB connected electronic dictionary in spacefm?

Hi Everyone,

Recenlty my beloved sharp japanese-english electronic dictionary has started misbehaving due to I guess a false contact somewhere to the display.

Here is a picture of me proudly posing with it (click to enlarge):

Anyway what happens is that the screen suddenly loses most of its brightness, making the text extremely difficul to read. Before it completely becomes useless I’d like to save the content which I paid good money for to my computer.

The dictionary actually run Windows embedded CE 6.0 and when I plug it using the provided USB cable it seems to be detected as indicated by the output of lsusb command:

Bus 003 Device 004: ID 04dd:9244 Sharp Corp.

Still, I have no clue how to mount it in spacefm (or any file managers) and my googling didn’t produce any results that I could easily understand.

Would someone kindly provide me some pointers on how to proceed? Thanks!

Err this is a bad answer, but what does

sudo mount -a 

do (if you're suggesting it has usb storage space on it). You could also use the uuid to try and mount it:

sudo blkid -o list -c /dev/null

Then:

sudo mount (uuid here)

Im guessing this is a bad response...

I would try mounting it as root, probably vfat or msdos file system.

Hi dura, thanks for your help!

sudo mount -a

didn't do anything and...

sudo blkid -o list -c /dev/null

is a cool command! However the dictionary did not show up in the list neutral

mmmh, is there a possibility that it cannot be mounted at all...?

fatmac, I am not sure what file system it is but I will try to mount it as root.
