Mounting samsung galaxy tab for file transfers thru usb


I am running Debian Wheezy and trying to connect samsung galaxy tab 2 (7.0) using usb cable. On connecting, it seems to mount it as a camera and in file manager all folders are shown in:
Code:
 
gphoto2://[usb:002,002]/
I am able to copy files from the tablet pc but cannot copy any file to it. How can I correct this problem. Thanks for your help.

I assume you are talking about a tablet computer of some sort.

Some information on the hardware of both boxes may make an answer to this possible.

Things I would like to know is when you are connected to this thing what is the output of;
Code:
lsusb
Code:
fdisk -l
What is the version of what OS is running on each box and what the heck are they.

It is a question of MTP and linux:

I was able to transfer files using bluetooth and hence I abandoned trying to transfer files over usb cable connection.

I have an android phone and use FTPserver to transfer files wirelessly:

<https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=lutey.FTPServer&hl=en>

I then use gigolo to mount the device, so it appears as a drive in thunar. I imagine something similar would work for nautilus.

for those you can use mtp type:


Code:
    fusermount -u /media/mtpdevice/ 
  mount | grep mtpfs
