In addition to the other comments regarding auto and vfat, I don't
see you referencing the partition number.

# mount -v -t vfat /dev/sda1 /media/mp3player

All of the "reporting" about Laci Peterson & Michael Jackson
reminds me of the Don Henley song "Dirty Laundry": "Can we do the

newsroom got a running bet. Get the widow on the set, we need
dirty laundry."
