I have sometimes found that opening a deviceĀ  in fdisk enables the partitions on it to be recognized. However in order for this to work at least the device must have been recognized (there has to be an entry in /dev.)

No problem with my Android phone- Mounts and seen by ADB.

Where might I start? I would RTFM if I knew which FM to R ;-)

I use Calibre (it's in the Fedora repos). When I plug in my Kindle I
don't mount it, I just run Calibre and it sees it directly.

If that doesn't work, look at the output of dmesg to check that the
device is being detected when you plug it in.


I''m having a similar problem with a portable hard drive.
One test you can try: Connect the Kindle then reboot the
PC. Is the Kindle mounted and available when the machine
comes back up?
Nope. Even if I boot into an older kernel.
