    Have a similar problem

    Got the SonyEricsson HBM-30 Bluetooth headset and MP3 player.

    It uses Sony Memorystick for the music files.

    Worked fine when booting in OS 9, but since i got panther on my AlPB 15, it doesn't seem to work.

    Memorystick shows up on PB desktop but when putting Memorystick into the HBM-30 again, it cant read it.

    So as the man says, pls help someone if you have a clue.

    for the MuVo, go to a windows PC and format it in FAT.

    the music/battery part must be encoded to read FAT and play mp3 on it. so once you formatted on a Mac (HFS), it's no longer recognized.

    Mac has FAT driver so that's why those disks can be read. but non-Macs typically don't have HFS drivers.
