My Walkman connects as an MTP device instead of USB mass storage
Obviously this is messing up my syncing script and making it very difficult to put anything on my Walkman. I haven't reformatted my Walkman or done anything unusual with it. Also, somehow I got it to work on the first time I discovered the problem by (I think) ejecting it as MTP and still having it connect normally, I haven't been able to reproduce this since. How do I fix this? (I noticed elsewhere that apparently you need drivers to connect to a device via MTP; if I uninstall the drivers, will it work as a USB mass storage device again?)

Since the device has both MTP and mass storage capabilities, it is possible that Mint 15 put the MTP drivers on the system. If so, then your suggestion about removing (or disabling) them is possibly a solution. Try it out and see.Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.
