Bug Description

Binary package hint: hal-info

My Insignia Pilot media player is not being recognized a portable audio player, just a storage device.
As far as I know, there is no entry for it in /usr/share/hal/fdi/information/10freedesktop/10-usb-music-players.fdi.

$ lsusb | grep Best
Bus 007 Device 015: ID 19ff:0308 Best Buy

I've written a working .fdi for it:
