Perhaps not so common, but is bound to become one.
Anyway, I have a similar problem.
I have a MuVo Slim 256 MB player.
My system is a PII 400MHz, USB1.0. I am running SUSE 9.1.
The Muvo Slim is recognised as a USB hard-drive on USBView, however when I try to open the folder using Konquerer, I get that unfortunate "can not open folder ..." error message that I used to get for all my USB drives before SUSE patched their drivers.
(Generic USB hard drives work just fine since that was fixed... all but this player in any case. I have to plug it up to my laptop, which runs XP, in order to use it at all.)
So, since my PII is a Linux only box, and It holds all my LP recordings, ripped CD's, etc.... I rather want to see this player work on it. I don't want to lug my laptop home just to transfer files (though, by all rights, I have to use the laptop for encoding unless I want to wait for hours on end...)
