Making more use of my iPod on Solaris

Ok, so here's something I only just realised.

For some time now it's been annoying me that whenever I plug my iPod into any of my Solaris hosts, I get the "DO NOT DISCONNECT" logo, with the data-transfer spinwheel icon active in the top left of the window.


$ cfgadm -la
Ap_Id                          Type         Receptacle   Occupant     Condition
...
usb1/3                         usb-storage  connected    configured   ok


$ cfgadm -lav usb1/3
Ap_Id                          Receptacle   Occupant     Condition  Information
When         Type         Busy     Phys_Id
usb1/3                         connected    configured   ok         Mfg: Apple  Product: iPod  NConfigs: 1  Config: 0  <no cfg str descr>
unavailable  usb-storage  n        /devices/pci@0,0/pci108e,5347@2,1:3



And of course vold is running. But if you then eject the removable disk that vold has mounted, you can then use the USB port to merely charge your iPod while you listen to its contents using your headphones.

How fiendishly simple.
