YIKES !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! * Connect your device again * As root, execute "fdisk -l" * If you see an unexpected partion, e.g. /dev/sdb1, as root "mount -t auto /dev/sdb1 $HOME/nexus" * "cd $HOME/nexus" and "ls -al". Do you see anything? If that works, you've mounted it just like a USB key. Make sure that you "cd" away from the device, and "umount $HOME/nexus". Check you device's mounting options. I've seen devices that have options to mount as... - regular USB devices - MTP devices - PTP (direct photo-to-printer) devices Select the mount option most convenient for you. -- Walter Dnes <waltdnes@××××××××.org> I don't run "desktop environments"; I run useful applications
