Using Sony ICD-ST10 Stereo Digital Recorder with Linux


I've seen how a MinDisc recorder can be used on Linux, but I have one of the Sony digital recorders with a built-in flash card that cannot be removed. Its files are transfered via a USB port to my computer, but I can only find the software to transfer the files available for Windows. Is there a method to use the digital recorder with Linux so I can remove Windows entirely?

Hi.

It might appear as a mass storage device, in which case you can use it in the same way you would use a USB memory stick.

Plug the recorder in while you're in Linux, then see what the output is from 'dmesg' in a terminal. You should see something like this if the device can be used as a mass storage device:
Code:
usb 1-1: new full speed USB device using address 2
hub 1-1:1.0: USB hub found
hub 1-1:1.0: 1 port detected
usb 1-1.1: new full speed USB device using address 3
SCSI subsystem initialized
Initializing USB Mass Storage driver...
scsi0 : SCSI emulation for USB Mass Storage devices
  Vendor: Sony      Model: Storage Media     Rev: PROL
  Type:   Direct-Access                      ANSI SCSI revision: 02
USB Mass Storage device found at 3
usbcore: registered new driver usb-storage
USB Mass Storage support registered.
SCSI device sda: 256000 512-byte hdwr sectors (131 MB)
sda: assuming Write Enabled
sda: assuming drive cache: write through
 sda: sda1
Attached scsi removable disk sda at scsi0, channel 0, id 0, lun 0
That output was actually for a Sony USB memory stick, so your dmesg output should be different.

Digital Voice Recorder Recognized as Scanner Under Mandrake 10.0

Mandrake 10.0 detected the recorder via USB as a scanner and would not let me configure it as a mass storage device. No icon popped up on my desktop like when a CD is inserted in the CD-ROM drive, which would allow me to mount the device for storage. Anyone have similar problems?

Plug the device in, and post the last 20 lines of dmesg. I'd like to see what the kernel thinks it is.

Hi,
I have the same question about transferring data in a Sony ICD ST-10 digital recorder to my Linux system.

The ST-10 uses LPEC codec, I don't know what program can read it if I am able to import it, but that's another question.

I am using Ubuntu 7.04.

When attaching the ST-10 to the PC via USB I can't see any USB storage device.

Using a terminal session, the last few lines of dmesg are:

[13934.033929] usb 1-2: new full speed USB device using uhci_hcd and address 2
[13934.197137] usb 1-2: configuration #1 chosen from 1 choice
[14022.427175] end_request: I/O error, dev fd0, sector 0
[14022.451167] end_request: I/O error, dev fd0, sector 0
[14067.707630] usb 1-2: USB disconnect, address 2
[14216.422768] usb 1-2: new full speed USB device using uhci_hcd and address 3
[14216.585980] usb 1-2: configuration #1 chosen from 1 choice
[14246.769725] usb 1-2: USB disconnect, address 3
[15423.181400] usb 1-2: new full speed USB device using uhci_hcd and address 4
[15423.344471] usb 1-2: configuration #1 chosen from 1 choice
:~$

Any Ideas?

Ed

Hmmm.

It's not a mass-storage device then. I think you might be out of luck for now.
