There's not useful infomation with DEBUG on.

I tested on another machine with kernel 2.6.24-rc2. And the result is
diffrent again.
Here is the result:

1. on 2.6.24-rc2, when I plugin the player the kernel reports below messages:

usb-storage: waiting for device to settle before scanning
/*[lets mark the below part as part 1]*/
scsi 0:0:0:0: Direct-Access Newman mp3 PQ: 0 ANSI: 0 CCS
sd 0:0:0:0: [sda] 245248 512-byte hardware sectors (126 MB)
sd 0:0:0:0: [sda] Write Protect is on
sd 0:0:0:0: [sda] Mode Sense: 03 00 80 00
sd 0:0:0:0: [sda] Assuming drive cache: write through
sd 0:0:0:0: [sda] 245248 512-byte hardware sectors (126 MB)
sd 0:0:0:0: [sda] Write Protect is on
sd 0:0:0:0: [sda] Mode Sense: 03 00 80 00
sd 0:0:0:0: [sda] Assuming drive cache: write through
sda: sda1
/*[lets mark the below part as part 2]*/
sd 0:0:0:0: [sda] Attached SCSI removable disk
usb-storage: device scan complete
sd 0:0:0:0: [sda] 245248 512-byte hardware sectors (126 MB)
sd 0:0:0:0: [sda] Write Protect is off
sd 0:0:0:0: [sda] Mode Sense: 03 00 00 00
sd 0:0:0:0: [sda] Assuming drive cache: write through
sd 0:0:0:0: [sda] 245248 512-byte hardware sectors (126 MB)
sd 0:0:0:0: [sda] Write Protect is off
sd 0:0:0:0: [sda] Mode Sense: 03 00 00 00
sd 0:0:0:0: [sda] Assuming drive cache: write through
sda: sda1

2. on 2.6.24-rc5 kernel reports only the part 1, after try mount the
disk it reports the part 2 and mount the partition as rw

3. on 2.6.24-rc5 kernel reports only the part 1, after try mount the
disk it just mount the partition as ro with nothing more messages.
