Bug Description

Windows Mobile PPC HTC Touch HD is not recognised as a portable audio player when connected in USB Mass Storage mode.

Adding Device ID to /usr/share/hal/fdi/information/10freedesktop/10-usb-music-players.fdi helps.

This doesn't work, needs to be int_outof. Is that device actually able to play back ogg vorbis?

It is a Windows Mobile device, hence its playback capabilities depend on the software the user installs.

Anyway, the default MS Windows Media Player seem to struggle with MP4 and does not support OGG at all. Also, the individual folders are usually prepended with "My " string.

So it might be safer to enable just MP3s (plus possibly WMV and WMA - I have no such files to test). I have finally created a separate subset:

          <match key="@storage.originating_device:usb.product_id" int="0xc25">
             <addset key="portable_audio_player.access_method.protocols" type="strlist">storage</addset>
             <append key="portable_audio_player.output_formats" type="strlist">audio/mp3</append>
             <append key="portable_audio_player.audio_folders" type="strlist">My Music/</append>

Being Windows mobile, it should at least support wma and wav, I'll add those.
