Ubuntu 9.10

My flash drive( Make SONY) size 1GB when inserted pops up a windows showing a media player has been inserted and rythembox is started.

and icon for this pendrive on desktop shows it as media player.

I think Ubuntu is using SONY name to guess it as media player. Important thing to note is this Pendrive does not contain any media files.

how to correct it

regards

Adi

If it makes you feel better = you are not alone:

It has "wishlist" status - so it is not considered to urgent.

How about formatting the drive and changing the label? Just guessing.
