Bug Description

Binary package hint: hal

My mp3 device (Sony Walkman NWD-B105 when inserted into the usb slot, gets recognized as a generic USB Flash Disk, instead as a Media Player.

It is a normal mp3 player that has a "Music" folder where you put all mp3's.
By looking on the net Ifound that this has to do with HAL and i spent my time on making my device to work.
I checked on HAL website and their last version does not include my player.

Now it works great, it is detected by rhythmbox, I am able to transfer(from-to)/play files from the mp3 player.

It seems there's more than one type of NWD-B105: I have a NWD-B105F with product id 0x31a.

@mihai007 could you confirm the full model number from the back of yours? Then I'll prepare a patch to add in support for mine too.

Well that's strange, mine only says NWD-B105, it's white and is the 2GB version (see attachment)
