I have an Altec Lansing iML 237 external USB that was working in 11.04, but does not in 11.10. When plugged in, a "CM102-A+/102S+ Audio Controller" appears in the sound system settings, but it will not play. The only profile setting is "Analog Stereo Output", but the speaker uses a digital interface over USB.

The output of lsusb is:

Bus 002 Device 008: ID 0d8c:0103 C-Media Electronics, Inc. CM102-A+/102S+ Audio Controller

The system log when the speaker is plugged in:

Oct 31 20:08:26 TOSHIBA-NB505 kernel: [164035.560115] usb 2-2: new full speed USB device number 8 using uhci_hcd
Oct 31 20:08:26 TOSHIBA-NB505 mtp-probe: checking bus 2, device 8: "/sys/devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:1d.0/usb2/2-2"
Oct 31 20:08:26 TOSHIBA-NB505 mtp-probe: bus: 2, device: 8 was not an MTP device

Any ideas, or is the driver for this device under linux 3.0 broken?

Well, just like when your car stops making that funny noise when you take it to the mechanic, the speaker started working!

I am going to attribute it to the mere action of posting to AskUbuntu!
