Bug Description

Binary package hint: udisks

I have a Sony PRS-300 eReader which presents itself as mass storage via USB, but in addition to its internal storage, it also presents a partition (actually a whole disk by the looks of it) that is read-only and simply contains the Windows/MacOS software installers.

I suggest that we disable/hide this partition.

Err, for clarity, the partition in question is the one with the label LAUNCHER. The other one (READER) is the internal storage of the eReader.
