I can't get ubuntu to read the memory card on the cell when connected to the pc. the maker currently as far as I can see does not cover linux. can any one help me out?

I want to get the pics from the phone. getting a little mad that I can't figure it out.

Hi! Sony Ericcsssons are notorious for not playing nice in Mass Storage mode. I assume that is how you want to access via the cable? I am currently working on a patch for the C902 to get that working but that is a little way off completion.

I could then attempt a patch for the W580 (if required). This again will take some time. What are your symptons of connection?
1) Does it connect then disconnect?
2) Does the phone reset continously in mass storage mode?
