Package: mtpfs
Version: 0.9-3
Severity: normal

I installed this package in the hope that it would allow me to upload
playlists to my device, namely the iRiver SPINN [1].  From the mtpfs
documentation I see that this is supposed to work through a virtual
/Playlists directory on the mtpfs mount.  However, my device _already_
has a real /Playlists directory, so when I mount it I get this
unsettling picture:

 [24]matica:~$ ls -l mnt
total 106
drwxrwxrwx 2 itz itz      0 Dec 31  1969 Flash Games
drwxrwxrwx 2 itz itz      0 Dec 31  1969 Fonts
drwxrwxrwx 2 itz itz      0 Dec 31  1969 Music

-rwxrwxrwx 1 itz itz      6 Dec 31  1969 devlogo.fil

Not very surprisingly, saving an .m3u file to /Playlists doesn't seem
to accomplish anything.  The player doesn't explode, though, so
there's something to be grateful for :-)

You might think that I could mount the device in USB storage mode and
simply save a playlist file to the existing /Playlists directory.
That was my first try too, and the file does appear in the filesystem,
but it is still not available as a playlist from the device UI.  That
may be because it needs some other format and of course the format is
undocumented :-(
