Wireless USB devices show as CDROMS, but there are a lot of ugly
possibilities to implement this. Usually it is something like a
SCSI-eject command telling the device to change it's class.
Most devices today are switched by u3g, but there also is a manual way
with usb_modeswitch (http://www.draisberghof.de/usb_modeswitch/) to
understand what is really happening.

My own experiences are written down here (in german, but the commands
should be enough to understand what I am doing):
