 +===== What? =====
 +My notes on using the Sony NW-S785 walkman with linux, should apply to all NW-S78* models like NW-S784. Looks like this model is sold in Japan only.
 +  * [[http://​​CA/​perl/​​template=&​info_id=148]] -- sonys listing of bluetooth profiles
 +===== todo =====
 +  * support for the ogg format?
 +  * What works from linux: storing audio/​video/​pictures onto the walkman?
 +  * stuffing cover-art into the mp3s?
 +  * converting pictures to formats optimal for the ?
 +  * hardware specs
 +  * are there firmware upgrades? custom linux firmware?
 +===== managing music/​picture/​video files =====
 +== mounting ==
 +This has to be done to do file operations. Do not disconnect the walkman while it is mounted!
 +tail -f /​var/​log/​messages &    # start watching the logs
 +# now onnect the walkman, it can be accessed with the usual linux usb-storage driver.
 +# if everyting goes well usb_storage gets loaded and you the A826 gets available as a new device.
 +# You should get an output like 'sda: sda1', saying you can access the A826 under /dev/sda1.
 +# If that doesnt happen try to manually load the driver:
 +modprobe usb_storage
 +# - if that still doesnt work check if usb-drivers are loaded and the A826 comes up as usb-device at all.
 +mkdir -p /​mnt/​walkman ​                                 # creates a mountpoint if not existant
 +# now lets mount the S785, use your device here.
 +# The option ensures that we properly see UTF8 encoded filenames
 +mount -t vfat -o iocharset=utf8 /dev/sdc1 /​mnt/​walkman
