So, it's recognized as a generic media player, which is why rythmbox opened 
automatically. It's the same that happens with amarok and if I understand

If so, it's expected.

You could probaly use rythmbox to 'sync" your media collection between the 
device and the computer.

BTW, is this the kind of device that's easy to install linux with OPIE? Do you 
intend to try?
