I have a cheap 32GB MP4 player I bought on Ebay. I was made in China. I paid $20.00 for it. Under WinXP my laptop recognized it as a flash disk. I used Win Media Player 11 to Sync up my downloads. WMP 11 did NOT have to be running in order for the OS to recongnize the player. I could treat it just like a jump drive.
Ubuntu 9.1 (64bit) won't recognize it. I don't use ver. 10.04 or 10.10 due to problems with video, wireless and other problems. 9.1 works like a dream on ALMOST everything. I'm tired of dual booting.
Ubuntu 10.04 won't recognise my Sandisk Sansa Clip+ as installed on comp. It sees memory sticks and memory cards. Are there drivers that I need to install?? Anything in Synaptic Package Manager that needs to be installed?
Do you know any dvd playback app that can recognize inputs from a remote control (like play, pause e.t.c) and at the same time when I launch it to check the dvd rom and resume playback from last time. I used vlc but it does not seem that works like the way I do.
I would like to set xine as my default player for DVD playback and cannot figure out how. I have read other posts that state to right click on file>properties>open with but do not seem to have the open with option when right clicking a dvd that is in my dvd drive. I would also like to change the open with option in the right click menu. The current option is to open with movie player, and movie player cannot seem to find additional plug ins to open file with.
I recently installed Kubuntu 10.04 Lucid Lynx. It is working well, but Movie Player does not work, and Dragon Player plays videos/movies but with no audio. VLC works fine. how to either remove Movie Player and Dragon Player or make them work. I tried apt-get remove mplayer but that doesn't work. If not that, I wonder if the default media player can be changed to VLC, e.g., when you click any video it will start to play using VLC?
No media player recognizes my Philips MP3 Player as such, I've put all my hopes into Rhythmbox, it seems to be the most likely one to work. Anyway, I have created the empty .is_audio_player file but still the player does not show up in RB. I can access the player just fine through Nautilus, and syncing it actually worked for a while, but now for some reason it has stopped.
im opening greek subtitles on ubuntu but i cannot see them i know this happen because the subtitle created on a windows system but if you tell me a method step by step (because im begginer ) for how to be able to open the srt file and see the normal greek characters i dont want to use the option on the player to recognize the subtitle. i want to be able to open the srt and edit some words for example
i just installed 10.04 and everything works fine except that it does not recognize my external cd/dvd rom and my usb flash drives, I already found some threads related to this and they that talk about going to config editor and activating these options: media_auto_run and automount_open.
I have a DVD with a error located at a certain time. Each time I watch the DVD and then come to that point Movie Player (or vlc player) returns a error. Now I want to rip this DVD but all the rippers I tried return a error at that point when they try to rip it. Rippers I tried:
- dvd::rip - FFMPEG - Acidripper - Avidemux
Now I want to know ain't there a ripper which can read over these errors and still make a decent rip?

When I try to install vmware-player it complains that it can't find the kernel headers for my running kernel (2.6.31-20-generic) to compile its modules. I did have this working on 9.10. No amount of googling revealed the name of the package I need to get this working in Lucid.
I have a COWON S9 (an MP3 player that normally mounts like any memory stick) and I noticed that when I connect it, it won't auto mount and does not seem to be recognized by Lucid after yesterday's kernel updates.
This player has always auto-mounted without any problems until yesterday's (2011 Jan 27) kernel updates. I rebooted and made sure I'm on the latest kernel.
Anyone else experiencing things not auto mounting? I can't get it to manually mount either. It doesn't seem to be recognized at all now.
I download the flash player from the adobe's site as an APT file but while i click to install it shows me an error saying Unknown channel 'lucid-partner' The channel 'lucid-partner' is not known I searched other ways of installation like download the deb file and opening it but I got that error.

Recently I installed MPlayer with its default gui and its interfaces SMPlayer and GnomeMPlayer. When I'm using GnomeMPlayer it responds to multimedia keys as configured in Gnome shortcuts, even if it's minimized or running in another virtual desktop. But it doesn't happen to the other two gui's mentioned above. I have also noticed that native Gnome applications or with Gnome support like Banshee and Rhythmbox rspond to multimedia keys even when the gui is closed and they are running only in the system tray. But it never occurs in non-Gnome applications like VLC, MPlayer and others. Jetaudio wich responds to these keys in MS Windows running under Wine doesn't even recognize them.
So I came to the conclusion that only native Gnome applications or with Gnome support recognize multimedia keys because, as it seems, they receive the signal from Gnome configurations. Others applications doesn't do so. Here is my question: Is there some way to make all applications recognize the configuration of Gnome multimedia keys shortcuts? (Of course it would not be fine if they recognized ALL Gnome shortcuts because they could conflict with shortcuts from another applications. The idela would be that they recognize ONLY Gnome multimedia shortcuts.)
I have an external hard drive with most of my music on either mp3s or ripped from cds. I have imported the folders into gmusicbrowser but it doesn't show up some of the files. I have also tried rhythmbox and banshee media player but they all have the same problem. The files play fine on my other pc runnin xp pro so they are fine. Also some folders have nothing in under ubuntu but have mp3 files in (as they should) under xp.
Ubuntu insists on using movie player as the default for audio files. I would like to use VLC. VLC doesn't show up on the list as preferred applications for multimedia. I tried using custom with vlc %u but it doesn't work.

I'm running Ubuntu 10.04 on my MSI-16362 laptop and it doesn't recognize my built-in webcam. last time I used Ubuntu (9.04 I think) it recognized the LT webcam w/o any problem. Does someone has any idea how to fix it?
I'm usually an Arch Linux Fellow so I have little experience with Debian based systems. I'm installing Ubuntu 10.10 on this laptop for my mum, everything works fine apart from the DVD drive. It refuses to detect DVDs at all (I've tried 8 different ones). It grinds and grumbles at me and makes all sorts of ungodly noises. The drive works fine mechanically as it's been used before under Arch and I used it to install Ubuntu yesterday. I've installed all the relevant codec packages and other odds and ends to play DVDs with, but still nothing.
I've tried everything that I can find. Nothing is working. I'm sitting here with my netflix delivered copy of Farscape: peacekeeper wars. And I can't play it. 8( I have another DVD that is a how to for comps(A+ level type stuff) and it won't work either. If I go to home and look it only says cd/DVD drive. I have two. I'm very new to ubuntu. Are they supposed to do like windows and show they have anything.
