copying music to Nexus One or Motorola Droid does nothing

Bug Description

Binary package hint: banshee

I try to copy (re-encodig to Ogg-Vorbis) music from my NAS to my Nexus One (tried Motorola Droid/Milestone as well, both use Android) by dragging an Album on the detected Nexus. When I copy for the first time after Banshee was started, very briefly an "adding..." message appears in the bottom left corner but disappears very quickly. Unfortunately, no music is copied. Further attempts do not even trigger that "adding" message.

This just happened to me, the external music storage device wasn't mounted. Once mounted Banshee worked as expected.

Just confirmed this problem on Lucid final.

My Nexus One SDcard is mounted when I try this (otherwise Banshee could not display or play its current music library).

When I try to copy, I get a couple of Errors:

"File not found ..." (the numbers vary)
