I use Ubuntu 64bit as my desktop.
I can mount SGT7.7 as a mass storage on my WinXP.
But it doesn't work on my linux machine.

Any solution?

Thanks

I wanna do that too.
My 7.7 can mount only as MTP >.<

It only works as MTP.

The only way so far to map it for easy file transfer is to have an adb-gui-wrapper that does file transfer and query.

Like the great QtADB, available in windows/linux/macosx flavour:

Do you install Samsung kies?

After I installed Samsung Kies,
when I connect my SGT7.7,
I can access the internal storage and external storage through file explorer.

I believe he meant Mass Storage as in , like a card reader, it assigns a drive letter.

No, unfortunately, SGT 10.1, 8.9, 7.7 and 7.0 plus does not allow the unit run other than MTP mode, so no Mass Storage.

That's why the micro SD slot and/or USB OTG adapter is so useful. If you ever want to copy stuff over to your device, that you otherwise wouldn't be able to via MTP, you can just put it directly to a micro SD, or on a USB device and then copy from there to the 7.7

Hi kazuni,

May you connect to SGT 7.7 with adb in linux?? The adb devices command just gives me:

List of devices attached
???????????? device

My PC is installed with Ubuntu Linux 64bit. I had add an udev rule with the following content:

SUBSYSTEM=="usb", ATTRS{idVendor}=="04e8:6860", SYMLINK+="android_adb", MODE="0666"
TEST=="/var/run/ConsoleKit/database", \
RUN+="udev-acl --action=$env{action} --device=$env{DEVNAME}"

But it does not work.

Good news for Mac users, Kies Mac works with the GT 7.7. Although the Samsung website only lists the Tab 10.1, it works perfectly with the 7.7
