OK, I just verified that it does connect and auto-mounts on the desktop 
as you'd expect on a centos5 box.  But your behavior is what I used to 
see when connecting to a Mac with the original firmware - and it might 
have needed the drivers installed to work on windows.  Bluetooth would 
work even before the update but its too slow to be useful with a 
several-gig micro-sd card.
