I use Android 4.0 and followed a tutorial to mount my tablet on Ubuntu using mtpfs when the device is connected via cable.

It works almost perfectly. I can copy files and even whole directories to the device through Nautilus. However, when a directory contains subdirectories I get an error when a subdirectory is being copied ("Error creating directory: No such file or directory"). Other files are copied fine. In the same way, I can't create subdirectories in a directory directly via Nautilus.

What causes this? Is this expected? Any workaround?

Oh man, it's a cheap tablet from a manufacturer called "Evertek". :P The model name is Genesis GT-7240. It's a pretty sweet model for $100 bucks btw. Heh. I connect it to the desktop using a Micro-USB. Site: – moraes Apr 8 '13 at 14:41
