Bug Description

Binary package hint: rhythmbox

I'm using the latest RB version on Intrepid. Whenever I plug in my portable mp3 player (creative zen stone plus) I get a dialogue asking me whether I want to open it in nautilus, in rhythmbox or do something else. If I choose to open it with RB, it launches the program but does not show or import any of the files on the player.

If I then go to "import errors", there is a message telling me that "/media/Stone Plus is a directory". So, seemingly, it tried to import the player rather than the files on it.

    - don't try to import the portable player mountpoint to the library

Just updated, and I'm still getting the problem. Now "import errors" doesn't tell me that "/media/Stone Plus is a directory" (I get no error message) but RB still doesn't show any of the files on my player.
