Default How to avoid detecting BB by PC with Linux installed

Please Login to Remove!

Hello, Everybody...

My problem is the following: I want to keep my BB9000 connected to PC (to charge it) and at the same time to have access to media files from the smartphone, not from PC.
When I plug BB to my Ubuntu PC it becomes detected and mounted and access to media files becomes blocked. I've tried unmounting device, but this doesn't help.
Could anybody please give me a piece of advice?

Thanks,
Timur.

Use your 110v adaptor to do the charging.

Thank you, but it is essential to charge it from PC.

(Really the problem is deeper: I've shown here an artificial problem, just to illustrate. In fact I am developing a gadget which uses Linux as embedded OS, testers in QA lab want to test this gadget with BB plugged in (to keep it charging). And I really can not tell them to use 110V adapter or to cut signal wires in the USB cable to prevent BB from detecting, because since QA raised this problem it should be solved gently, without hacks).

So my example was given in such a way just because everyone was able to face the problem in the manner I've described.

You might try taking it out of Mass Media Mode. Not sure if you can get it manually mounted then.

To try taking it out of Mass Media Mode what? Blackberry, or USB-driver? I am a novice with Blackberry, I've just got it recently and have to return in a few days... And I have not played with it a enough.

Mass storage mode is what allows the media card inside a BB to be mounted/accessed from a pc. Try turning it off.

This is very well documented.

Turn off media card support
1. On the Home screen, click the Options icon.
2. Click Memory.
3. Change the Media Card Support field to Off
4. Press the Menu key.
5. Click Save.
