Where is my tablet's memory card mounted on laptop?


I connected my Asus fonepad7 tablet to my laptop via usb. My laptop automatically detects it & opens. But I'm unable to find where the memory card of my tablet mounted on laptop. When I put cursor on the tablet device, it shows "mtp://[usb:002,003]/" as shown I the attachment.

As I'm unable to find the mount point, I can't use command line for accessing the tablet. Also, commands "mount" & "df" doesn't reflect anything regarding the tablet.

I'm working on Ubuntu 13.04

I don't think it is mounted, not in the way you would think. It seems to be using MTP to connect which I think means it's connecting to a server process on the device rather than mounting it.
It's a nice little kick in the teeth to the Linux community by Google as thanks for using the Linux kernel in their devices.

I got the mount point as "/run/user/ravbholua/gvfs". But the issue is that all the files & folders are named as numerals. Please see below:

Code:
ravbholua@ravbholua-Aspire-5315:/run/user/ravbholua/gvfs/mtp:host=%5Busb%3A002%2C008%5D$ ls
65537
ravbholua@ravbholua-Aspire-5315:/run/user/ravbholua/gvfs/mtp:host=%5Busb%3A002%2C008%5D$ cd *
ravbholua@ravbholua-Aspire-5315:/run/user/ravbholua/gvfs/mtp:host=%5Busb%3A002%2C008%5D/65537$ ls
1   100  105   11  1301  1420  1533  1597  2    223  226  3   4    422  426  5  85  9
10  104  1072  12  1310  1496  1547  1806  212  224  232  30  421  424  430  6  86  900
ravbholua@ravbholua-Aspire-5315:/run/user/ravbholua/gvfs/mtp:host=%5Busb%3A002%2C008%5D/65537$ cp 30 ~
cp: cannot open 30 for reading: Operation not supported
The name of the files & folders as shown in GUI is by names but here it is numerals. Also I'm unable to copy any file. Please look at the above code.
Though I've got the mount point, still I can't do anything.

Looks like a gvfs bug.

Has it perhaps been identified as a 3G modem rather than a storage device as it is a phone? The "open" window looks like your laptop home directory, not the tablet storage?

Play Bonny!

I don't mean to hijack the thread, but it may also depend on what kernel (+ its modules) your particular distro has. I've noticed that for instance, I can't mount my LG Optimus F3 Android phone in Debian Wheezy LXDE, but I can mount it while in Ubuntu Studio 14.04 LTS. The phone has to be in MTP mode to be properly mounted.

My workaround for this was to install the ES File Manager on my tablet and phone. It has the ability to browse the network and transfer files to and from my Samba shares.

No it's identified as storage device. Yes open window was of home directory; now I've replaced the image with the tablet's storage device. Sorry for not being clear earlier.
