Default Mac: e280 Mounts them immediately disconnects

have a Sansa e280 v1 player which I absolutely love. Doubly so, because it works with Rockbox. On Windows or Linux, using MSC mode, the player works just fine.

On the Mac, I've got issues. I plug in the player and it mounts on the desktop, showing both the internal memory and the microSD card. Right after it mounts, the player says Writing, and them immediately goes to Disconnected.

The player still shows up on the desktop, but as soon as you try and do anything to the player, it hangs the Finder until you disconnect it from the Mac.

I installed Rockbox on it, and used Rockbox's USB mode and it gives me the same issue.

If I switch to MTP mode, it connects and stays connected, but the Mac doesn't do MTP, so the player never mounts on the desktop.


Sansa e280 v1 with latest firmware
Mac Mini 2.0 Ghz with Snow Leopard installed. 4 GB of RAM and 2 other external USB HDs.

Sansa is plugged into a powered USB hub. Same issue happens whether the MicroSD slot is inserted or not.
