I've recently bought a Sandisk Sansa Fuze+, specifically because it is one of the best supported portable media player in Linux.

It works well, but when I connect it to Ubuntu, it is recognized as removable device (like an USB key) but not as an audio player. Therefore I'm able copy by hand my music from the hard drive to the player, but I cannot make use of Banshee to synchronize.

I read in a tutorial that it was sufficient to add a .is_audio_player file in the root directory of the player to make it recognized as it by the system. But it does not seem to work. For information, at some point I had to reformat it.

Has anyone an idea ?
