I plugged my W800i using the USB cable and Fedora 6 read it just like a usb key without any config
I am using kernel 2.6.18-1.2798.fc6xen
I was blown away at the speed I could transfer my mp3 files to the W800i way faster than my MS box

Thnx
I use gentoo with the latest 2.6 kernel branch
I don't use the genkernel i compile the kernel myself(gentoo has many kernels to choose from)
I think that i need to choose it while compiling the kernel
but i have no idea abt this
the device is a sony ericsson w800i connected using a dcu 60 cable(usb)
Win drivers r available at se website but not for linux
i think the option shoould already be in the kernel but i am not sure where to look.
I will try again by recompiling the kernel and searching for the required option as soon as the latest version of gentoo is out.
if i find out i will reply the solution here.
Thnx

Ok, now I know a bit more what you are talking about Smile I did'nt know it was a phone Rolling Eyes

I found out a few nice thing while googling. This link will interest you. It is a way to check if you have a firmware with a usb bug in it. If that is the case, just read the instructions on the forum and you'll have an answer.

I personnally don't know what you want to do with it or if you need a special sofware for some kind of "sync" that you want to do, but if you only want to mount the device like a usb stick, I'll be able to give you some tips.

Before I begin, as I do not know "your level of knowledge", just forgive me if I'm not accurate Smile

So, the first thing you need to check is wheter you kernel "see" the device. The command "dmesg" can give you some nice hints. Also, the command "lsusb" usually give you some nice info about what is plugged on your computer.

You can always copy&paste some of the output if you need more help after this...

So, normally, if you see the usb-device in lsusb (if you don't see it appear automatically, wait a minute and re-check... if it is not there, than we will try something else). So, if the device is listed, and as you have a 2.6 kernel, you probably have a "udev" system. So, in /dev/ a device like /dev/sda should appear. Maybe even something like /dev/sda1. (It could also be /dev/sdx, /dev/usb...)

Then, if you see the device, it should be as simple as
mount /dev/sda1 /mnt/"some-directory"

I hope it helps

Good luck

I got everything working like a charm
WORKS EVEN BETTER THAN WINDOWS NOW
i just compiled usb mass storage support in the kernel and then complemented it with kde and hal.
Now i don't have to worry about a thing.
Just connect the phone and it gets auto-mounted and auto-opened.
Thnx for ur support

But now i am in search a linux phone manager that's compatible with my phone namely sony erricson phones, any suggestions?
