View Full Version : [xubuntu] Nike+ Sportsband - Viewing files

April 26th, 2009, 03:19 PM
Hi all,

I recently bought a Nike+ sportsband after reading that it stored it's files internally in simple XML, thinking I could use this to write my own software for keeping track of my running.

I was expecting it to appear as a USB drive when I plugged it in to my laptop however this isn't the case.

I do get this appearing in /var/log/messages:

Apr 26 15:15:22 dave-laptop kernel: [10582.836159] usb 6-1: new low speed USB device using uhci_hcd and address 3
Apr 26 15:15:22 dave-laptop kernel: [10583.007471] usb 6-1: configuration #1 chosen from 1 choice
Apr 26 15:15:22 dave-laptop kernel: [10583.058409] generic-usb 0003:11AC:4269.0003: hiddev96,hidraw0: USB HID v1.11 Device [Nike SportBand+] on usb-0000:00:1d.0-1/input0

Could anybody give me any advice as to how to actually mount the device somewhere to see the files?

I am running Xubuntu 9.04, kernel 2.6.28-11-generic.

I would like to know this as well. I am trying to find a way to use my sportband with Ubuntu.

I'm getting exactly the same problem as David_H, and running Ubuntu 9.04. The system is detecting the presence of the device, just not mounting it anywhere, and I am uncertain how to.

Please could someone offer some advice?

Many Thanks,

Has anyone had any luck with this yet? I'm guessing that the kernel just doesn't recognise the device ID 11AC:4269 as a kind of USB storage device, but I don't know how to change that so it does.

Perhaps there is some way to get Ubuntu using the windows driver files or something.

Any solution would be a great help.

I'm having the same problem with Ubuntu 10.10 and 11.04. it does not see the device at all.
