    Connecting Samsung Galaxy tab 10.1.

    Yesterday I bought a Samsung Galaxy tab 10.1 (P7500) and I can't mount the storagespace on it. I installed MTP, but still nothing. Can anyone out there please help me solve this?

    Merry Christmas All

    Here's some more info:

    Be very, very careful with the second one. It's pretty detailed, and involved editing fstab, and the slightest mistake might make your system unusable (unable to mount any drives).

    I haven't yet fully experimented with it.

    I have the same issue with the Galaxy Note 10.1 running Ice Cream Sandwich. Great tablet, but not a case of "it just works...". I'm still looking for a simple solution.

    I have found a solution for the Galaxy Note 10.1. I'm not sure whether it will work for your Tab, but give it a try. It is simple but not entirely clear; it works.

    1. Install gMTP
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install gmtp
    2. Connect your tablet using the supplied proprietary cable to a free USB port.

    3. I got the "Could not connect" message as before. I could not connect using gMTP either.

    4. Open the Notification area on your tablet and select the USB Notice. Mine says "Connected as a camera". Select this and you should be in the Settings Menu "Storage Settings > USB PC connection" (NOT visible from the normal Settings Menu in my case).

    5. There are 2 selections, either Media Device (MTP) or Camera (PTP). When I select Media Device, I can access all the Tablet Files on my PC using gMTP normally.

    I can confirm that gMTP also works for my Galaxy Tab 10.1

    I launch gMTP, then connect the cable, then hit the connect button...

    It takes a quite a few seconds before the file list appears though - looks like it reads the tree etc.
