Hi Guilherme,

A friend of mine has such a player, and he has problems mounting it in
Windows, but never in Linux :)

Thunar volman easily recognizes it, even if it in MTP mode. You may
want to turn on the "Hold" switch and hold the "Left" button
when inserting it in USB plug - just to check if there is a difference.
Tomorrow I will check the dmesg output with my friend's player and let
you know.
