I have a Nokia Lumia 520 windows 7 phone. When I plug the phone into my Ubuntu pc, Ubuntu only recognizes it as a camera. I can not transfer music from the pc to the phone. I can only move photos.

I can open the phone and see the file folders on Ubuntu. But when I copy music files from the pc to paste in the phone music folders it seems to be transfering the files, and you can see the new music files in the folders of the phone. However when the phone is then disconnected from the pc, the files are not found in the phone anywhere.

What am I doing wrong?

Can you post the output of dmesg (last ~10 lines) when you connect the device to your PC? –  Luis Alvarado Jun 4 '14 at 21:03
