I recently upgraded from Ubuntu 10.04 to Ubuntu 11.10 with
xubuntu-desktop installed over it (I don't like Unity), and have found that when I plug in my Sony Walkman NWZ-B153 MP3 player, it does not mount as expected.
I have checked on
lsusb and the device is recognised, Rhythmbox also picks up the MP3 player and shows it in the 'devices' list.
However, I cannot browse the MP3 player's files through either pcmanfm or thunar. I installed the
usbmount package and this seems to have preemptively solved the problem for other USB devices, as I can access other USB pen drives through the
The MP3 seems to show itself nowhere except through Rhythmbox and
lsusb so if someone can offer a solution so I can browse its files, that would be greatly appreciated.
I know this sort of question has been asked a lot, but none of the provided answers give me a solution.
