USB device (ThinkPad Lenovo) recognized, but not in /dev


I am running ubuntu minimal 13.04, and want to connect my Lenovo ThinkPad to the laptop. After connecting:

dmesg:

Code:
[  709.288194] usb 1-1: new high-speed USB device number 7 using ehci-pci
[  709.541035] usb 1-1: New USB device found, idVendor=17ef, idProduct=741c
[  709.541049] usb 1-1: New USB device strings: Mfr=2, Product=3, SerialNumber=4
[  709.541057] usb 1-1: Product: ThinkPad
[  709.541064] usb 1-1: Manufacturer: LENOVO
[  709.541070] usb 1-1: SerialNumber: MP02GC6
But fdisk -l, does not show it.

How to mount the device?

Hi Hoffmann

Is it shown in with "mount"
Or have a look in /media/user

What format is the stick in Gparted might help with that.

Hi Hoffmann, Welcome to LQ. Is this a tablet or some other type of device? What OS is running on the device? Have you looked at /media for the disk? Have you looked into mtp?

Good luck. ;-)

Thanks guys!

It is a tablet. Android OS 4.0.3

mtp fixed the problem partly, I can see and mount the device but some files are not shown, I assume it has something to do with chmod on the device
