I used to access my Android device through nautilus, but suddenly my Ubuntu stops recognizing the usb port. (Yes, I switched usb ports already!)

I type lsusb on console but my Android doesn't appear anymore.

There isn't any clue in dmesg or syslog.

Someone can help me?

It sounds to me like your Android device is not allowing USB connections at all. Have you tried it with another system? –  RolandiXor Sep 25 '12 at 16:07
Not yet! It's a good point. I will try it. Android can disable USB connections? (USB debug mode is disable!) Where can I configure that? –  brausen Sep 25 '12 at 20:06
For me, using another USB cable solved the issue. Weird, they should be the same? –  Raphael Jan 19 at 13:14
