Sony Walkman in Ubuntu jaunty

Posted 07-25-2009 at 08:04 AM by bhupendra

Eversince upgrading to Jaunty my sony walkman 8gb mp3/4 player was mounting but was refusing to show any of my music folders. An extensive search on google did not solve the problem.
Then I enabled usb/sony walkman in the virtual box; I have installed Linux Mint (as a demonstration to win over a friend to Linux distros) The Walkman mounted and showed all my music folders. When I disabled the walkman in the virtual box, lo and behold!, it showed up as a usb storage device on the Jaunty host and worked as it should.
So everytime I want to mount my walkman on Ubuntu, I have to first see it in the virtual box and then disable it and it shows up on Jaunty. Not a perfect solution but I can live with it.

    I have noticed the same issue with my Sony Walkman 2gb NWZ-S615F. This Mp3 works perfectly on Ubuntu 8.04. You can use Gnomad 2 to create Playlists.
