FIX: Only the internal storage is available when you synchronize content from Windows Media Player 11 to a Windows Mobile 5-based device with AKU 2.3 or a later AKU

SYMPTOMS
You try to synchronize content from Microsoft Windows Media Player 11 to a Microsoft Windows Mobile 5-based device with AKU 2.3 or a later AKU. When you do this, the phone connects. However, only the internal storage on the phone is available in Windows Media Player as a synchronization target.
CAUSE
This issue occurs because the canonical name for Windows Mobile 5-based devices with AKU 2.3 and later AKUs is truncated in Microsoft Windows Media Device Manager. This hotfix eliminates a bug that causes this truncation to occur.

STATUS
Microsoft has confirmed that this is a bug in the Microsoft products that are listed in the "Applies to" section. This problem was first corrected in Windows Vista Service Pack 1.
MORE INFORMATION
Typically, internal storage is small. However, external storage slots are frequently larger than the internal storage locations. Therefore, external storage is used more frequently for synchronizing media.

This issue does not appear to affect devices that run earlier versions of Windows Mobile. No other device class has similarly experienced this issue.
