Question MP3 player appears blank

I have a Sylvania (SigmaTel) MP3 player that I just plugged into Zorin 11 today for the first time. Although Zorin detects the player and it appears in my file manager when I try mount it I get an error. I Googled the error and some said this is because MTP tools wasn't intalled. So, I installed it and ran MTP-detect and got yet another error message. What's causing this problem?

It could be that another process is already grabbing your MTP device even before you're running mtp-detect. Are there any audio players running, such as Amarok or VLC? You might also be hitting this bug in gvfs, which would be annoying since that has existed for over two years now.
