There was always this problem on Slackware, usually you could only work with USB at the time.
I never cared about this, but since I have this Sony Ericsson W810i, and I’m on Slackware, which doesn’t even read one USB slot without you adding it. So I added one, to use it for my memory stick, but then when I plugged in my phone, which is ought to read phone memory and its memory card memory, it would only read phone memory.
I had no idea how to solve this, I was especially confused because my disk is read as sda1, so I figured my USB will be marked as sdb1, sdb2, etc… But no, they should be read as sdb1, sdc1, sdd1 and etc…
So today I piss out, and figure out to do it, more cuz of a challenge, rather then cuz I really needed to alter files on my Walkman.
