    Question Mounting Nokia file system?


    I am trying to connect Mandriva 2008.0 to my Nokia 6230i via a DKU-2 usb cable, and while it will see the device (it calls it CDROM3), it cannot mount the file system.
    I have searched for software but it would appear that a bluetooth connection with something like xgnokii is the answer, and that connection via usb cable is not currently supported. Which seems a shame as only mounting is required. Or am I being naive and mounting is a serious problem?

    Does anyone out there know how to mount a phone file system?

    (N.B. Someone has a similar problem with Ubuntu and has posted on that forum)

    did you try to mount automaticly? IF i were you i would try to mount it by manually.

    Fisrt learn the partition with
    Code:
    fdisk -l
    command and then try to mount
    Code:
    sudo mount  your/partition  /mount/poin7
    command

    Cool Thanks but still no go

    Thanks for that. Your solution appears to be on the money. Unfortunately, my description of the problem isn't.
    I got the following result.

    [There is a hda, I just didn't copy it over]
    Disk /dev/hdb: 80.0 GB, 80026361856 bytes
    255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 9729 cylinders
    Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes
    Disk identifier: 0x4cb66674

    Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System
    /dev/hdb1 * 1 9729 78148161 83 Linux

    Disk /dev/sda: 32 MB, 32113152 bytes
    2 heads, 32 sectors/track, 980 cylinders
    Units = cylinders of 64 * 512 = 32768 bytes
    Disk identifier: 0x00000000

    Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System
    /dev/sda1 2 980 31328 4 FAT16 <32M
    [root@localhost ray]# sudo mount /dev/sda1
    mount: /dev/sda1 already mounted or /media/MMC busy
    mount: according to mtab, /dev/sda1 is already mounted on /media/MMC
    [root@localhost ray]# cd /media/MMC
    [root@localhost MMC]# ls
    8473179_3V0*
    [root@localhost MMC]#


    So it appears it is mounted, but not correctly recognised.

    Also. I remember from old Microsoft days that when first connected the phone offers "Use phone as data storage device?", which you accept, and then quit. Then the phone announces "Data Enhancement Connected". The above result is achieved in "Data Storage Mode". In "Data Enhancement Connected" mode, fdisk no longer sees it.

    Any ideas where I go from here?

    The phone is a Nokia 6230i

    I used to have one of those phones I was able to mount it. Occasionally when mounting the memory card I would have a problem. The trick was to mount it as a storage device when the phone prompts you for the connection type. Gnokii is good software for things like syncing etc but I don't even bother with it myself as I'm generally just shifting media back and forward.

    If you have a bluetooth connection the latest bluetooth software with Gnome can automatically mount your filesystem as if you plugged it in a USB drive and with KDE I always had great success going this route.
