    N-Gage takes 3 kicks to mount

    I've been having problems mounting my Nokia N-Gage lately. I know I have the kernel support and udev rules down, but for some reason I have to run the mount commmand three times to get it done. Maybe not a big deal, but I really hate this kind of seemingly random operation.

    Code:
    janne@Devastator ~ $ mount /mnt/n-gage/
    mount: No medium found
    janne@Devastator ~ $ mount /mnt/n-gage/
    mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/ngage,
           missing codepage or other error
           In some cases useful info is found in syslog - try
           dmesg | tail  or so
    
    janne@Devastator ~ $ mount /mnt/n-gage/
    janne@Devastator ~ $
    It doesn't matter how long I wait after I plug in the device, I get the same result every time. So what's wrong and how do I fix this?

    check dmesg or /ver/log/messages and see what the kernel is doing that's freaking out

    Mostly they just give me a load of dropped packages, but I was however able to pick a couple of lines from there which I suspect might be relevant.

    Code:
    ...
    usb 4-2.1: new full speed USB device using uhci_hcd and address 29
    ub(4.29): Stall at GetMaxLUN, using 1 LUN
    
    ...
    
     uba: uba1
    FAT: bogus number of reserved sectors
    VFS: Can't find a valid FAT filesystem on dev uba.
    ...
    Any ideas?

    maybe the vfat needs to be formated? it is FAT after all and you have had it for a while and I know you've given it more then mild use

    is this the memory on the NGAGE itself, or a memory card?

    you might need to consider actually re-formatting the card in a Windows machine, or something, and trying again. Just a thought...
