Ever since I installed Xubuntu Natty, my mp3 player is not mounted any more. lsusb also does not list it. Normal USB sticks are normally mounted. How can I re-enable auto-mount for it or mount it manually?

Please tell us which MP3 player you are using. Some of them don't act as external disks and use a protocol like MTP instead. – binfalse Jun 23 '11 at 20:52
@binfalse: It's an Archos 3 player. – Lambda Dusk Jun 23 '11 at 21:14

This is a known bug #763227 which you can read on Launchpad here.

If you update your kernel to 2.6.38-10 or above it should fix the problem.

Well, it's been nine months now and I always update, so it kinda solved itself. – Lambda Dusk Mar 2 '12 at 10:30
