You've specified it: /mount/iPad
That is to say ,to use the command `ifuse /mount/iPad`, you have to create /mount/iPad first.
Or, use an existing directory. For example, create a directory 'mnt' in your home directory (which would be /home/shum/mnt ) and use it as the mount point for the ifuse command.

Thanks.
Code: Select all
root@debian:/home/shum# mkdir ./mnt
root@debian:/home/shum# ifuse /mnt/ipad
ERROR: the mount point specified does not exist
root@debian:/home/shum# ifuse ./mnt/ipad

root@debian:/home/shum# cd ./mnt
root@debian:/home/shum/mnt# ifuse /mnt/iPad
ERROR: the mount point specified does not exist

With this command you've created a directory /home/shum/mnt
Then you can mount the "Media" storage of your iPad with
Code: Select all
ifuse /home/shum/mnt


And you don't need to be root to use ifuse. Also you might consider deleting /home/shum/mnt and create it again under your own normal user.

Thanks for your patience. I am not very good with Linux.
Here is what I have done. I chmod 777 to /mnt
Code: Select all
root@debian:/home/shum# ifuse /home/shum/mnt -nonempty
There was an error accessing the mount point: Input/output error

OK. I finally got it. I cannot read the files or photos directly, I have to copy over to another directory in /home.

Thanks for your help and patience.

You are right. It is my bad habit of using root all the time. Switched over to normal user, run the ifuse mount. I can now view the ipad files without having to copy them first.
