How to mount the Creative Zen Touch mp3-player?


I have a Creative Zen Touch mp3-player and I use gnomad 2 to use it, but I was wondering if I could just mount it, in order to copy music to/from it just using krusader and play the music from it with amarok. Thank you.

Eject it, plug it back in and then do "dmesg | tail". It should show you where the device is located (/dev/something). Mount that.

That's all I get...
Code:
usb 5-4: new high speed USB device using ehci_hcd and address 2
usb 5-4: configuration #1 chosen from 1 choice
usb 5-4: USB disconnect, address 2
usb 5-4: new high speed USB device using ehci_hcd and address 3
usb 5-4: configuration #1 chosen from 1 choice
Any more ideas? Thank you.

Have you tried mounting it by mount -t /dev/mtp?

I have a Zen MicroPhoto. And this is how I've been mounting my device, but I'm not quite sure if they're all mtp devices. You'll need to download libmtp, before you mount it if you don't have it installed already.

As I said, I use my mp3-player with gnomad2, and it has libmtp as a dependency, so I already have it installed. I tried that command but looks confusing to me, as it just specifies a type, doesn't specify what to mount and where to mount. It looks like it works, at least it gives a 0 return code, but... where should I look to find out if it actually mounted it?
Thank you.

I have the same problem. Using gnomad2, neutrino or kzenexplorer works fine afaik, but I don't have a /dev/sdb, /dev/mtp or similar. Dmesg doesn't help either:

This shell script (Kmtpmount) will automatically setup and mount your Creative Zen Touch as a USB drive: http://www.kompulsa.com/it/itdownloads.php

I found that my Zen only worked when I typed sudo before gnomad2 at the command prompt.
