Cannot mount Samsung E2370 phone as USB Storage device

Postby PCXT » 2017-02-10 17:38

Hello
I'm using Debian since version 5 and I got a problem with mounting phone as USB mass storage.
Computer is Dell D430 notebook, Intel Core2 1.3GHz, 2GB RAM, running Jessie with the latest updates.
So if I plug any USB mass storage device in, the system detects it, and it pops in my /dev/... as some filesystem device like sd?? or mmc*. Then I can mount it or make my desktop environment mount it. Everything works fine.
Any mass storage device... except my cell phone. It's Samsung Solid E2370 configured to work as "Mass Storage". In my older machine with WinXP, it just shows a drive using generic USB mass storage driver. In Linux, I can't mount the device which becomes available in /dev/ as /dev/sdf with partition /dev/sdf1. After

Code: Select all
sudo mount /dev/sdf1 /media/tel


the console freezes (permissions to directory are OK, directory exists, I can mount any flash drive there).

In lsusb the phone shows as:
Code: Select all
Bus 004 Device 015: ID 04e8:681e Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd


And here's the /var/log/kern.log after plugging it in. About 19:11:20 mount command has been announced:

In Windows, quick check with chkdsk does not reveal any FAT errors on phone's SD card. All files are readable so card seems to be OK.

How to mount this device?

Don't know, what filesystem is it? fdisk -l or so should tell, is it an older mmc or sd card? is it some sdxc format?

fdisk -l doesn't return information, but hangs when it is about to detect sdf.
It's a microSD 2GB card formatted to FAT, mountable when put into adapter and connected through SD card reader.

Maybe jmptfs would help?

There are many threads on this forum in which the different ways and protocols (mtp adb etc) used to connect phones are discussed. Maybe look at those. Also make sure that android is allowing access to storage


Also consider connecting over WiFi instead

This is not Android phone, it is running its own relatively simple system. There is no MTP/PTP or wi-fi in this phone. For USB connection, it can operate as "Mass Storage" or "PC Studio".
The "PC Studio" option opens a virtual COM port for e.g. syncing contacts, but it's probably not documented. I always used mass storage.

I think that it some way reads damaged data from the phone and fails to get all information about filesystem from it.
