Plugging in my Android cellphone in Mass Storage mode mounts the SD card via USB onto an insane pathname like

/media/sp;<_html>/

which of course causes problems later with other programs like samba/smbd sharing over the network, etc.

  1. How can I change the default mount point for this device, for every time it visits my Ubuntu machine again in the future?

  2. Is there a way to ensure an alphanumeric-only character set no matter what USB mass storage device gets plugged in, esp. ones the host hasn't seen yet?
