OK this is just strange. I finally got around to hooking my phone up to the netbook via usb in order to transfer my music from the phone BUT it's not reading the correct file names, instead it's changing them to numbers


Yep, not sure what's happened here :shock: :?

As it looks like your phone is connecting as an MTP device, have you got mtpfs (FUSE filesystem for Media Transfer Protocol devices) installed ?
Code:
sudo apt-get install mtpfs


[EDIT]

Can you do me a favour .. please stop posting oversize pictures

If you need to post oversize images, please post either a linked thumbnail, or just a link.

Hi DerrianWolf

I know this is not much help but I get the same issue when I transfer music albums from my local PC to my NAS, but I just rename them back

ok mtpfs now installed, seems to be showing the correct filenames on the phone. Thanks 8-)

Sorry about that, didn't realize they'd be so big :o

Here's what I do if posting a large screennshot.

take the screenshot

open it in the gimp (or whatever)

Resize the pic to a maximum width of 640 .. and save the copy as "thunbnail.jpg"

Host BOTH pics

post this to the forum

Code:
[url=http://hostname.com/Screenshot.png][img]http://hostname.com/thumbnail.jpg[/img][/url]


Then the thunbnail.jpg gets displayed here, but it's a clickable link to the larger image .. like the example below:-
