Hello, I own a Windows Phone. I am able to view my device and browse my mobile/phone files when I connected my mobile with ubuntu 13.04. But I am not able to browse / view the device in fedora 19.

Please help.

Have you enabled the 'Developer Mode' on your mobile-phone?

I have no idea how that is called or accessed on a Windows-phone, but on HTC it goes like:

  1. unlock screen
  2. home screen
  3. settings / options / properties (usualy with an icon displaying a teeth-wheel or a wrench or a toolbox)
  4. developer-options
  5. CHECK to enable "USB-Debugging"
  6. Replug mobilephone
  7. Dont forget to select 'Use moblilephone as harddisk' (or similar)..

Eventhough most times it is not required, maybe you have better luck with autofs...

Run as root: yum install autofs

Hope this helps

This method is for Android mobile phone, but how about Windows Phone?
