Philips GoGear ViBE (set to MSC) recognized as MTP

Bug Description

Binary package hint: udev

Philips GoGear ViBE (usb vendor/model = 471/2075) is set to MSC but recognized as MTP by udev. ('s brokened)

Fix for me was to comment out line 785 of /lib/udev/rules.d/40-libgphoto2-2.rules
#ATTRS{idVendor}=="0471", ATTRS{idProduct}=="2075", ENV{ID_GPHOTO2}="1", ENV{GPHOTO2_DRIVER}="proprietary", ENV{ID_MEDIA_PLAYER}="1", MODE="0664", GROUP="plugdev"

but this would obviously break udev for someone who wanted to use MTP. I don't know how to make generalized fix, or how to make direct bugreport to udev developers.

I have attached output from:

udevadm monitor --udev --kernel --property
#plug device in
dmesg | tail -10
udevadm info --query=property --name=/dev/bus/usb/001/...
udevadm test /devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:1d.7/usb1/...
udevadm monitor --udev --kernel --property
#unplug device
dmesg | tail -10

Umm - obviously I already 'fixed' the problem on my system and the device mounted ok; P'raps I should have rebrokened it before running ubuntu-bug so that all the system files that automatically get attached reflect the problem. Nonethess I think all the info needed is in my attachment 'Troubleshooting info from udevadm'. If not let me know.

What's wrong with using the device in MTP mode? And what is "MSC", "mass storage"?

MSC = Mass Storage Class = UMS

a) MTP didn't work out of the box with ViBE as a mountable filesystem
b) I've always had issues in the past with MTP, so I just set to MSC which
is more of an industry standard and is more mature on linux
c) it works on Karmic
d) a cursory search of launchpad reveals similar bugs for other devices
which were considered worth fixing:

I set the device to MSC so it should be detected as MSC. (And is, when the
offending rule is removed).

lsusb output showing the ViBE identifying as a Mass Storage class device.

This bug was never fixed but it's still present. I also see this bug with a slightly different version of the same GoGear Vibe device. Product id as identified by lsusb is 207b.

The fix is the same as above but now involves removing or commenting out the line 218 in file /lib/udev/rules.d/69-libmtp.rules (which is part of libmtp-common package) as follows:

# Philips GoGear ViBE SA1VBE04/08
# ATTR{idVendor}=="0471", ATTR{idProduct}=="207b", SYMLINK+="libmtp-%k", MODE="660", GROUP="audio", ENV{ID_MTP_DEVICE}="1", ENV{ID_MEDIA_PLAYER}="1"
