How to introduce your RHEL to a mass storage device?


I recently installed RHEL on my Windows in hopes of learning how to use it. So i have linux tutorials and stuff but i want to move them to my linux using my phone as a storage device but RHEL refuses to recognize the insertion of a foreign object whenever i plug in the usb. Help please.

How did you install RHEL? Virtualbox, dual boot, etc?

Here's a really good tutorial on getting USB sharing working on Virtualbox.

In addition, depending on the phone model / operating system it may use MTP to transfer files and not as a mass storage device. If so, you will probably need to install some packages/programs and as suggested in your other thread a better solution would be to install CentOS.
