Sansa Clip and Karmic
Upon upgrade to Karmic Koala Ubuntu (9.10), my trusty Sansa Clip player was not autodetecting like it did under the Ubuntu distribution I was previously using. So I scoured the web and found this site which gives a workaround: when the Sansa Clip is disconnected, go to Settings->USB Mode on the Sansa Clip and set it to MSC. It should now present itself to the computer as a normal file system. Unless, of course, the file system is screwed up, in which case you'll have to go to Settings->Format and format the Sansa Clip drive before connecting it again.
