I do love Creative music players. What I do not love is the Windows-only nature of their software. Luckily there have always been programmers willing to spend time getting MTP devices to work under linux, however clunkily.

But I got a new player recently, and was surprised to find that it's not MTP. It's just a regular mass storage media device. Which means it can be used with regular music software like banshee and rythmbox, with one small tweak.

Props to the author of this snippet.

Plug in, mount device, touch .is_audio_player (or otherwise create empty file with this name) in the root of the devices file structure (e.g. /media/My Zen/), unmount and disconnect device. Start your music software and reconnect device. It should appear automagically. And this should work for any kind of mass storage media device.
