The Samsung Galaxy s3 android phone uses MTP or PTP for data transfer.
I am using Fedora 17 with KDE.
When I plug the phone in, the device notifier appears, I click open with file manager which opens Dolphin.
I am presented with two directories.
1) Samsung GT-P7310/P7510/N7000/I9100/Galaxy Tab 7.7/10.1/S2/Nexus/Note
2) USB PTP Class Camera
The first folder is empty.
The second folder shows
The first folder is the internal memory on the phone.
The second folder is empty
I the decided to try mtpfs, i made a directory under /mnt
changed permissions so that a normal user can access the folder
[root@desktop mnt]# pwd
[root@desktop mnt]# mkdir phone
[root@desktop mnt]# chown -R allix:500 /mnt/phone
Then I ran mtpfs as normal user
[allix@desktop mnt]$ mtpfs phone/

The folder Card is the sdcard, the contents at the root of the card was listed, however when I went into a directory, I could not see the files.
Does anyone have any ideas.
Thanks in Advance

I have noticed that Amarok can see mp3s stored on the sd card
