Mounting a MTP drive

Sun Mar 16, 2014 12:15 pm

Hi all, I'm trying to transfer an audio file from my R Pi to my Windows Phone (Nokia Lumia 625) via USB. The phone makes its music and pictures available via an MTP filesystem. Can anybody advise how to mount an MTP filesystem in the Pi? I've googled and tried using a few packages such as mtpfs and mtp-tools and go-mtpfs, all without luck. But I am a novice!
FWIW, I'm trying to use the Pi to record an internet radio program and to then automatically transfer the audio file to my phone when I connect it.

I'm afraid I'm not too well versed in MTP stuff. But I am aware of the libmtp library.

It's pretty well documented over at the Arch wiki, and much of this can be applied to Raspbian et all.

Hopefully this is a good head start.
