I got no SD-Card support for my E-250 after boot into USB mode.
I plug in my powered off player into usb and only have access to internal storage.

If i plug in my player booted up there is no problem.

I am using daily build r29174-110131.
This task depends upon

I missed to mention that the usual usb screen is missing and some system information are shown.

I cannot reproduce this issue. Which bootloader version do you have installed? Does this work with a different SD card? Which OS does the PC run?

I was a bit lazy so i made a picture. And i attached a dump from lsusb. I was using debian unstable and a bleeding edge rockbox + bootloader.

Same behavior with Windows 7.
The device is a e250.

The svn bootloader now has USB support for the internal storage only, not for the microSD card. To access the microSD, you need to connect the USB cable after Rockbox is booted.

It has been suggested that the bootloader USB mode be activated by a key-press, since it is meant to be used for recovery. Because most users are using the release version of the bootloader, this has not been a priority. I have been using a bootloader patched this way for some time. If I have time this weekend, I will push this change to svn.
