Connecting Motorola Xoom by USB; ubuntu 11.04

Asked by pilulelilule on 2011-06-08

Recently I acquired a Motorola Xoom very satisfied with it. However I tried to connect my Xoom by USB, and sure enough it would not mount. So, I did some research and came across this web site "http://www.xoomforums.com/forum/motorola-xoom-development/691-mount-internal-storage-ubuntu.html" Followed all the steps, and finally saw that my Xoom was mounted on my desktop.

However it would not open, and it outputs the following message;

Could not display "/media/xoom".
The file is of an unknown type

Does anyone know how to fix this, or what should I do from this point?

Thank you kindly in advance!

"Honeycomb marked the move from USB Mass Storage to MTP (media transfer protocol). " Check if Xoom has an option to go back to USB mass memory storage protocol (default protocol of USB stick).
Could you connect Xoom, wait a little, run command
   sudo lsusb
and report result.

http://www.xoomforums.com/forum/motorola-xoom-development/691-mount-internal-storage-ubuntu.html : "If it does not come up blank, then make sure you have a line with Vendor ID 22b8 and you are all set" Vendor ID of your device is 10F1 and not 22B8, so it's not sure the provided link works with your Xoom model.
Did you ask question on Xoom forum ?
When Xoom connected, could you run command "fdisk -l".
