gvfs-mtp shows device, but doesn't mount it

I've installed gvfs and gvfs-mtp and when I connect my Nokia Lumia 625 to the computer pcmanfm shows the device in the Devices section, but when I try to mount it it says "Unable to open MTP device '[usb:003,011]'".

Any ideas?

MTP is still hit and miss from my experience with my Galaxy Nexus. I just have to plug it in again a few times and sometimes just wait a little before it actually shows me my local storage.

Re: gvfs-mtp shows device, but doesn't mount it

Same phone and errormessage here, also using gvfs-mtp (works with Thunar which I use). Fixed it with the following:

- plugged the phone in and got the vendor-id and product-id of the phone using:

[root@arch-macbookpro]$ lsusb
Bus 001 Device 007: ID 0421:0661 Nokia Mobile Phones Lumia 920

- created an udev rule with the following contents using the id's mentioned above (I found this somewhere on the internet, haven't checked if all parts are necessary):

ATTR{idVendor}=="0421", ATTR{idProduct}=="0661", SYMLINK+="libmtp",  MODE="660", ENV{ID_MTP_DEVICE}="1"

- reloaded the udev rule with

# udevadm control --reload

After rebooting the phone while connected to the usb port, and entering the passcode on the phone, I could open it in Thunar. Since pcmanfm uses gvfs as well I suspect it would work for you too.
