USB Panasonic Digital Voice Recorder (RR-US360)


I am trying to get my USB Panasonic Digital Voice Recorder (RR-US360) to work on my linux system running Slackware 11.0, kernel v2.6.20. Thus far I've had no success in finding a real solution (if one even exists). It may be as simple as "the Panasonic (USB) Digital Voice Recorder (RR-US360) is not supported". Well, if that's the case, then this issue is moot.

I saw some posts to linuxquestions regarding the RR-US360 back in Jan of 2005. Though, I didn't see any further replies alluding to a definitive solution. Hence, this post. I am already using other USB devices (eg, mouse, keyboard, Sony handheld PIM) which are running just I don't think it's an issue with the USB H/W itself.

I have also noticed that the kernel does see this device. So as not to overly crowd this post, I have opted to begin this discussion with two excerpts as follows (this specific information is only available when the recorder is connected):

1) From the "messages" file:
Mar 26 22:12:12 *system-name* kernel: usb 3-1: new full speed USB device using uhci_hcd and address 2
Mar 26 22:12:12 *system-name* kernel: usb 3-1: configuration #1 chosen from 1 choice

2) From the "lsusb" command:
: :
Bus 3 Device 2: ID 04da:2390 Panasonic (Matsushita)
: :

What else would you like to know?

Thanks for your help,

I'm also interested in the answer to this question, though with the Sony "IC Recorder".

I also have the problem where dmesg just stops after one two lines. [lsusb] lists the device but I'm not sure what to mount in /dev/... Using [fdisk -l] doesn't list the drive. It seems perhaps Linux doesn't know which drivers to use?
