How to get 11.04 to recognize my phone when plugged in.


Hello, first post here! I'm using a Dell Inspirion 600 with 11.04 and my problem is when I plug my Droid Eris in the phone knows its plugged in but I cant find it on the Computer.

Where can I access the phone in Linux?

Thanks

It should show up in Nautilus (and, if you are using Gnome, on the desktop). You may have to tell the phone to let go of the SIMM card so it can be mounted. (Edit: I meant "release the sdcard.")

I have a suggestion: Open the notification panel and touch the USB icon while the phone is connected. On my G1, that opened a menu telling the phone to mount. On my new MyTouch 3G, it opens a similar menu, but with more options.

I tried searching online for a user manual for your phone and could not find one. This is really a user manual question.
