I have a sony phone with android 4.1 when i plug it to my lap it does not auto mount the sd card. i used dmeg and viewed the log. it detects the manufacture details and all the stuff. but does not say any thing about new device like sd*. my phone shows me that SD card is connected any thoughts...

It probably has something to do with you phone. It should ask you for permission to let your laptop to access the SD Card by connecting the USB cable.

You may need to enable "USB debugging" mode if you haven't already. For android 4.1, it should be in Settings --> Applications --> Development --> USB debugging.

hi, Thanks for the replies. Friend of mine resolve this by making the connectivity mode to MAS instead of MTP. Now it works fine. seems like my lap top did not have MTP support
