Bonjour,

I have cell phone Nokia 3120 and I want to connect it to my computer
with a usb data cable.

When I plug it, I get this in the log files:

What can I do?

Thanks for helping.


Looking at your error messages, it could be a simple issue of Linux running to fast for the phone to accept the address. I ran into this with a USB stick.

This is the instructions to get around that problem.  It may work for you.


-----------------C/P
1. Always back up config files before editing them:
sudo cp /etc/modprobe.d/options /etc/modprobe.d/options.backup1
Now open /etc/modprobe.d/options in write mode:
sudo gedit /etc/modprobe.d/options

2. Add the line:
options scsi_mod inq_timeout=20
and save the file.
Seemingly reloading the module (scsi_mod) does not cause the new configuration to take hold. What worked for both he and I was to reinstall the kernel.

3. Type uname -a and take note or memorize the exact kernel version numer you are using.

4. Use the above kernel number to reinstall your kernel. For me it was:
sudo aptitude reinstall linux-image-2.6.27-7-generic
This will take a couple of minutes.

5. Reboot and test. This fixed it for Mario and has worked great for me. Note that there is probably a better way to make the new configuration take effect other the reinstalling the kernel. Whoever knows what that is could post that and we would have a better solution.

This confirms that the bug is just that the device does not wake up quickly enough. These instructions are for anyone who has these key(s) and is receiving the -110 (and possibly other) errors while attempting to use them.

--------------  End C/P

A test to see if the above fix will fix your problem is to insert the key, and shut down the machine. Start it back up, if it recognizes the drive and mounts it (or lets you mount it), then the above steps should fix the bug and allow you to use the key normally.
