When I connect my Samsung Galaxy SII with USB cable my DCIM folder looks empty although I can see my files on phone. Do you have any idea what would be the problem?

  • While USB Debugging option is disabled Samsung Galaxy SII is working as a MTP device and in this case Ubuntu can not see files on the phone. When I enable USB debugging option and connect my phone with USB cable Ubuntu recognise my phone as USB mass storage device and I can access my files.
