Hi All,

I have the above phone and before Intrepid, when ever I plugged in the device it would mount as a USB device so I could get at my pictures (it has a built in camera) and import and export MP3 tracks.

Now under Intrepid, it does not mount as a USB device, but the new "improved" Netwrok Manager Applet keeps popping up every 30 seconds saying a new mobile internet device has been found. :mad:

My question is how do I get network manager to stop popping up every 30 seconds (and this is not an exaggeration, I did time it)? And also how do I get Intrepid to auto mount this as a USB device as it did before?

I really don't want to dual boot this box just so I can access a device I used to be able to access under previous versions of Ubuntu. :mad:

Cheers

EmyrB

After plugging in the phone, post the output of:

Under Gutsy with a Sony-Ericsson w810i, my dmesg looks like:

I also noticed that under removable devices when I have the Sony Ericsson plugged in with the Network Manager flashing away every 30 seconds that I have an entry called: - Memory StickDrive. If I try to access it, I get the following error message: -


Cannot invoke CheckForMedia on HAL: org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.NoReply: Did not receive a reply. Possible causes include: the remote application did not send a reply, the message bus security policy blocked the reply, the reply timeout expired, or the network connection was broken.

Maybe this will help.

Any ideas folks as this is bugging me as it used to work flawlessly with Ubuntu for the last 3 years?

I too am having issues with my w800i.

XS++ fails to connect, the phone just charges when I plug it to my computer, and dmesg's output is kind of disturbing.

But I *think* the phone's hardware just failed. It's a pretty old phone that was handed down to me anyway. Even the joystick is so unresponsive!

Has this baffled the mighty Ubuntu Forum Members? Surely not ;)

Seriously, I would still like to solve this issue, but as I needed the piccies on it pronto I went and dual booted the PC in question with Windows XP which is far from an ideal situation as I have been Windows free for over 3 years (and unlike Berenger, I want to stay with Linux and move away from Mickeysoft, especially in light of the recent IE7 flaw).

Cheers

Now under Intrepid, it does not mount as a USB device, but the new "improved" Netwrok Manager Applet keeps popping up every 30 seconds saying a new mobile internet device has been found. :mad:


Having the same problem with a W800 under 9.04 jaunty. (Actually I get "network disconnected" every 30s, but surely the same problem).

It must be the countermeasure for "usb-modems-that-start-as-storagedevices-with-windows-drivers" and make them work under Linux automagically that screws things up.

I guess what would really be needed here is a way to manually decide what should be done to a device when it's connected. Ie a popup with the following

Connect USB device as:
( ) Modem
( ) Mass storage device

[ ] Always do selected in the future

Under Jaunty, my w810i popped up as 3 differnt windows: Create a Network--cancel, Photos--Open with, Music--Open with.

So perhaps there is some breakage with device selection.

Hello people,

I'm having the same problem here since 8.10.
I used to keep a copy of 8.04 on a different partition where it used to work with no problems, but that's no real solution. I've googled my head off, but nothing.

Hope somebody smart pops up with a solution. I have no plans (nor means or real need) to get a new phone, and I have no intention of going to windoze to copy my files.

Sigh...

A easy workaround if to make this behavior go away is to just choose some random operator and settings, and then it shouldn't ask you anymore, works perfectly for me anyway ;)
