Help me mount my cell phone hard drive

I'm using Fedora 17 with Gnome. I mounted my phone yesterday and everything worked fine. But since that one time mounting it, I have not been able to get it to mount again. I have made sure the phone (an HTC One X) is in disk drive mode and the one time it mounted I ejected it before unplugging it. I had this problem in F16 but restarting usually fixed it. Restarting has not fixed this, however.

This is what shows in my system log:

Re: Help me mount my cell phone hard drive

If you mount it manually in a terminal ("sudo mount /dev/phone-device-name /mnt"), are there any error messages? Does the phone disk appear in /mnt?

Re: Help me mount my cell phone hard drive

I'm sorry, but I haven't done manual mounting in a long time. How do I find out the device's name? I had a look at /dev but nothing there seemed to be it.

since udisk2 came out, all your media are found in /run and not in /mnt anymore.

Re: Help me mount my cell phone hard drive

When I run fdisk it doesn't show up at all. Just my Linux partitions.

Re: Help me mount my cell phone hard drive

I'm also using F17 and happen to have the HOX. This is my dmesg output after plugging it in in Disk Drive mode
Code:

[ 6463.978056]  sdc:
you also say that you unplugged it before ejecting. what can sometimes happen is that it marks the drive as damaged. have you got access to a windows install where you can run chkdsk on the sd card?

Re: Help me mount my cell phone hard drive

It hasn't got an SD card but I can try that with the internal memory.

Chkdsk didn't turn up any errors. It still doesn't show up in fdisk, either.

Re: Help me mount my cell phone hard drive

yes i was referring to the internal memory when i said sd card.

the one thing i notice is that we have different usb versions. maybe that is something to look at.

what is the name of the log file you got what you pasted from?

Re: Help me mount my cell phone hard drive

That was /var/log. Sorry I didn't mention it earlier.

I really don't understand this. I was able to get the drive to mount once. If it was a hardware problem, wouldn't I have *never* been able to get it to mount?

what kernel are you using. i am on 3.3.7-1.fc17.x86_64.

---------- Post added at 05:01 PM ---------- Previous post was at 04:59 PM ----------

looking at your output, i see your system tries to call dbus while it seems mine goes via udev.

I'm using the same kernel. That's odd. :-/

Automatic mounts yes. Manual mounts are where you tell them to be.
