Gnomadic is the only (working) program I've seen that
has re-encoding included with the file transfer which
is why I would like gnomadic to work with the Creative
Nomad MuVo.... I assume you don't own one - so here is
all the info I have on the MuVo... (maybe this will help)

muvo uses fat16 format and is often mounted under
/mnt/muvo or /mnt/flash (/dev/sda1)

Thanks,
Chris McBride

Nomad MuVo with Linux

- requires firmware update to at least 1.20 (1.40.12
recommended)
- firmware must be updated under Windows XP or 2000
(http://www.nomadworld.com/ -> downloads -> firmware ->
Firmware for NOMAD MuVo)
- my MuVo works best when formatted under Windows (FAT16)
- do not use creative formatter after firmware update,
format using windows as FAT16 drive

=================================================

- when removing files from MuVo be sure to empty trash....
- sometimes the MuVo may lock up when doing a file
transfer (may need to reboot computer)
- use the ALSA audio driver (if possible) in xmms to
prevent audio skipping while mounted

=================================================

as root:
mkdir /mnt/muvo
chmod 777 /mnt/muvo

add to /etc/fstab
/dev/sda1 /mnt/muvo vfat
noauto,owner,users 0 0

=================================================

mount with:
mount -t vfat /dev/sda1 /mnt/muvo

=================================================

alternate mounting method.....
Data stored on MuVo can be accessed after mounting
partition /devices/scsi/host0/bus0/target0/lun0/part1
(see cat /proc/scsi/scsi for ID #):
mount -t vfat
/devices/scsi/host0/bus0/target0/lun0/part1 /mnt/muvo/

Or you can put a line in the /etc/fstab to allow the
users mounting MuVo:
/devices/scsi/host1/bus0/target0/lun0/part1 /mnt/muvo
vfat owner,users,noauto,rw 0 0
