When i connect my nokia phone to ubuntu desktop I can copy anything from my memory card but when i try to copy anything to my memory card from outside it is not being done.There is no option to paste .
what could be wrong??
Examine file /etc/mtab (the table of mounted filesystems). If you see a line like this:
udev /dev tmpfs ro,mode=0555 0 0
then the udev rule which governs the mounting of usb devices in general (or which governs the mounting of ssd cards in paarticular) is set to mount *read only*. You must find the udev rule and change it to *read write* so that mtab shows you this when the phone is plugged in.
Location: Somewhere inside 9.9 million sq. km. Canada
Distribution: Slackware 14.1
Open a konsole, you will have to use some commands as root, so use 'sudo command' and you will be prompted for your root password.
First in konsole, 'sudo mount' will produce a list of mounted devices. Your mtab shows you have sda4 5 and sda2. These are your hard drive.
The memory card will have a name like sr0 or sr1 ( most likely ). You can mount devices as root at the command line.
You need an empty directory to mount the device to. Most systems have a /media directory for this purpose. Go there, do a ls command to see what you have. My system has a sym link called memory. It points to memory0. To mount a device, the command
'sudo mount /dev/sr0/ /media/memory/' will mount the device sr0 to /media/memory/.
Now a mount command will show if it a. mounted, and b. if it mounted ro or rw.
You can do a 'man mount' and read details.
I just plugged in a memory stick that is bootable, and is mounted r/o. It looks like this.
Please look when the nokia is mounted. I didn't see any device in your mtab listing that wasn't on /dev/sda, which is your harddrive. run "mount" by itself when the nokla is mounted. If you can read files, you should be able to determine where and how it is mounted. By the way, a device with the name /dev/sr# will refer to a cd or dvd drive, not a usb drive.
