When I copy file.pdf to my tablet with the command (in Linux - Ubuntu) cp file.pdf /media/Archos_7/Data via USB cable and then disconnect USB and look to the Data directory, file.pdf has size 0 B, or the file is not there (e.g. file.epub). I don't know what is wrong. I copied a few *.pdf and *.avi files successfully.

Do you know where is the problem?

  • Now, I copied three files - file.avi, file.pdf and file.epub to the Archos_7/Video folder. file.avi is copied OK, file.pdf is copied but has size 0 B, file.epub is not there. – xralf Mar 15 '11 at 21:13

Does your device auto-mount its storage to the PC when connected? On most devices you need to pull down the notification bar and click the USB notification to mount. You should dismount the same way, after dismounting in Linux, before unplugging the device.

And, how much free space do you have?

  • Now the device is mounted twice (according to cat /etc/mtab) /dev/sdc /media/ARCHOS\0407 vfat rw,nosuid,nodev,uhelper=hal,uid=1000,umask=0077,shortname=winnt,utf8 0 0 /dev/sdd /media/ARCHOS\0407_ vfat rw,nosuid,nodev,uhelper=hal,uid=1000,umask=0077,shortname=winnt,utf8 0 0 – xralf Mar 15 '11 at 19:14
