    If you go to file manager, does it list the devices? If so, click on one and it should open.

    without phone plugged in:
    Code:
    df > /tmp/aa
    plug phone in and wait for window displaying contents to open, then
    Code:
    df > /tmp/bb
    compare output to see what has changed:
    Code:
    diff /tmp/aa /tmp/bb

    $spacer_close

    run dmesg after you plug the phone in, and post the relevant portion here.

    also, a screen cap of the window showing the contents would be helpful.

    if you're not sure, just paste the whole thing to pastebin.com and link it here.

    Edit: just do a "dmesg -c" first, to clear the buffer, then attach phone, then run dmesg, then copy-paste it.
