Cowon S9 not recognized in Banshee or Rhythmbox OpenSuse 11.3

Hello, i am not real sure where to place this thread, so i will try here first. i have a Cowon S9 mp3 player that i like to plug into my computer and play music through Rhythmbox under Ubuntu. I have been trying other distros (OpenSuse 11.3 being my current distro). However when i plug in my mp3 player to my OpenSuse box, it doesn't show up in the side bar of Rhythmbox like in Ubuntu. I have shutdown my firewall, i compared the installed plugins under the OpenSuse Rhythmbox to those under Rhythmbox under Ubuntu and they are the same. i've tried Googleing my problem and have not found a solution. Either i am not entering the correct search terms, or NOBODY else is having the same problem i am. I have OpenSuse installed on both my laptop and my desktop and I have the same problem with both. I would greatly appreciate any ideas and suggestions people may have. Thanks.

so i just tried plugging in my Creative Zen and it showed up and i was able to browse its files. That got me thinking so i changed the Cowon S9 to MTP mode rather than MSC mode and now Rhythmbox crashes as does Banshee. So it appears my problem is with Cowon and not OpenSuse or Rhythmbox. Sorry for wasting server space with my ill informed post.
