Motorola Xoom Tablet not recognized

Hi

When I connect my Motorola Xoom Tablet (Android 3.0) to my PC (Fedora 15) via Mini-USB cable, the Fedora system doesn't recognize the tablet as a external drive.
Connecting my phone Nexus S (Android 2.3) the same way, it will be recognized and mounted.
Driver? Or am I too early?

Any help would be appreciated!

Curano

obviously the Xoom doesn't identify itself as a generic mass storage device by default, then. It would need a custom driver, yes, or alternatively there may be some app you can install on the Xoom which would make it present itself as a mass storage device when connected by USB.

Oh, I forgot to mention that the tablet is recognized by Windows 7 without problems.
It seems that the Xoom does identify itself as a generic mass storage device some how but not for Linux...

Re: Motorola Xoom Tablet not recognized

I got an post from the Motorola Forum today.
There is a fix for that problem that must installed on the Linux PC.
It's important to read the whole thread to get the updates and comments.

Anyway it does fix the problem for me even the tablet will not show up as drive.
Using gnomad2 I can tcheck the files on the tablet and transfer files from and to the tablet as well.

Here the link to the thread :

Re: Motorola Xoom Tablet not recognized

I don't have a Xoom, but use a Viewsonic G Tablet. Both are Tegra 2 devices and are very similar hardware wise. While at this point, my device is heavily modded, I do remember, when I first got it, just enabling USB debugging would allow me to transfer files. I don't ever remember creating a rules file to do this.
Then again, the 2 devices have different bootloaders, and run 2 different versions of android, so, I may be off base, but, I thought I would just mention it.
Question is, was USB debugging enabled?

I don't guess that USB debugging had been enabled. At least I didn't do so...

Re: Motorola Xoom Tablet not recognized

I think it's under Applications-->Development-->USB Debugging. I don't have my tablet with me at the moment, but, that's where it is on my Droid. Enable it next time and see if it makes a difference. I'm able to do everything I need to when it's enabled. Move files back and forth between my fedora install and the tablet, use the Android ADB to set kernel modules etc.. It's really a handy tool.
