Boot Mint with mp3 Player

Postby captain_juno » Tue Mar 11, 2008 1:10 pm

Is there a way to boot Mint from an old mp3 player just like you would from a USB drive? I was trying to use this tutorial but I could not get the HP USB tool to work. I'm using a Creative Zen Xtra 30gb and I thought since it's sorta like an external hard drive that I would be able to format it but this did not work.

Also, if there is a way, would there be a way to partition the drive with a / (root), /home, and swap partions or would I just do the USB tut way?

I think this could behave just like any USB hard drive, provided Creative has not "locked it" in some way
Don't fix it if it ain't broken, don't break it if you can't fix it
