    Have you tried a different USB port? I had a similar problem with my Android device not being detected, I was plugging it into a USB port hub and not a direct USB port.

    EDIT: your link does not work and I moved this thread to here.

    When I had a similar (not identical) problem with my Samsung Replenish SPH-M580 following an Android update (2.2.2 => 2.3.4), I found a solution by altering usb_modeswitch files.

    Here's the link:

    (Be sure to read to the end of the thread, since I made and corrected some errors.)

    Good luck and let us know

    Thanks for your answer.

    In the file /lib/udev/rules.d/40-usb_modeswitch.rules there are 2 entries dealing with Samsung.

    # Samsung GT-B3730
    ATTRS{idVendor}=="04e8", ATTRS{idProduct}=="689a", RUN+="usb_modeswitch '%b/%k'"
    # Samsung U209
    ATTRS{idVendor}=="04e8", ATTRS{idProduct}=="f000", RUN+="usb_modeswitch '%b/%k'"

    But as you can see from lsusb my "idProduct" is "6860" so '40-usb_modeswitch.rules' can not apply to the Galaxy 7.7 ...

    What I found was that in '40-usb-media-players.rules' there was an entry dealing with Samsung:

    ATTRS{idVendor}=="04e8" , ATTRS{idProduct}=="6860|685e|685b" , ENV{ID_MEDIA_PLAYER}="samsung_galaxy-s2"

    I am not sure how to proceed ... appreciate howto go from here

    I'd try editing /etc/usb_modeswitch.conf to change
    DisableSwitching=1

    Then you *might* be able to manually mount your drive.

    If so, usb_modeswitch IS the problem, if not, ,then not.

    If it is, I'd comment or rename the file/line you reference above, re-edit the .conf and try again.
