I have a Sansa clip+ and am having some problems with transferrring files to the device from a linux machine using mtp.
I am running fedora 20 which automatically detects the device in MTP mode and automatically mounts it.
From what I have read it uses gvfs-mtp to connect to the device and the device mounts to a location like:
I can see the files under internal Memory/MTP in both the file manager and from the command line.
However I am having problems transferring files from my computer to the device.
Using the file manager it looks like I can copy mp3 files from computer to the device, but when I disconnect the device and look for the copied files on the device I cannot find them.
Re-connecting the device to the computer the files I copied are visible on the device.
Anyone any idea why I cannot see the copied files in the device ?
From what I have read fedora 20 uses a tool called gvfs-mtp to connect via mtp. Does anyone know anything about this tool and how fedora uses it?
Does anyone know how I can use it to transfer files to the device from the command line ?
I have also read on various posts that libmtp can be used to effect file transfer via mtp. However I cannot connect using this, I assume because the device is already connected using whatever method fedora uses when it is plugeed in.
So I am also trying to find out a bit more about what fedora does when I plug in an MTP device.
What process/processes it it that auto-connects when the device is plugged in ?
What tool is used to mount the device when I plug it in ?
How can I mount/unmount the device manually ?
What is the difference between gvfs-mtp and libmtp ? Does one use the other ?
Does anyone know anything about mtp on fedora 20 ? Or where I may be able to find out about this ? I’ve come up blank so far.
