Surely on Linux, all you need to do is not mount the device? If I recall
the earlier conversation, it was about having the jukebox plugged into
usb, without the connection being active (i.e. the disk is not mounted and
accessible). On windows, this can easily be achieved by plugging in,
letting it automount, then unmounting it.
