I have the error: "Couldn't parse incoming data."

Ubuntu 8.10, fully updated.
Phone: Samsung A717

This error only appears when viewing the "Music" directory on my phone.
I successfully viewed the "Graphics" directory which had about twenty
files in it, and am able to transfer files from the Graphics directory.

transferring files to and from the phone. I find it odd that I can now
view all the filenames in the "Graphics" directory, and none from the
"Music" directory.

transfer the files.
