Grey out (instead of hiding) Memory cards in File Manager when USB connected

You need to
before you can comment on or make changes to this bug.
STEPS TO REPRODUCE THE PROBLEM:
0. Have at least one SD card in tablet
1. Connect tablet to computer with USB cable
2. Open File manager
3. Look in left (tree) pane
All SD cards in the tablet are visible; SD cards currently inaccessible (in use
over USB) would be grayed out.
SD cards that are used over USB do not appear at all.
EXTRA SOFTWARE INSTALLED:
This can evidently be confusing for new users, who may connect their tablet to
their PC, drag files to it, then look in the File manager for those files
without disconnecting. One example in <a
thread</a> at itT.
If a user tries to select a USB-used SD, maybe a message box should pop up
indicating the reason the SD card is unavailable and/or instructions to make it
"$CARDNAME in use. Disconnect USB cable."

I think I'm going to vote for this one too, as I was also confused by it. :-)
This is still a valid request for the Fremantle Specs about File management:
"When the Device is connected to PC with USB
The memory card branch is removed from the Hierarchical Listbox"
WONTFIX for Diablo - Nokia will not change any Diablo UI Specifications
anymore, as far as I know.
Sound like an interesting proposal.
This is a WONTFIX for Fremantle and it will be considered to display a
"connected to USB" info message/icon instead.
Wait, wait. The problem has been acknowledge but has been considered to be not
big enough to change the Fremantle work now.
Reopening and targetting Harmattan.
This will work fine in Harmattan. Closing.
