MTP Device fails
I want to be able to sync my music collection to my phone, but I also be able to convert it from FLAC on-the-fly. I thought I could use the "devices" feature from Strawberry, but whenever I try to create a device on my phone, I get this error:
Error connecting MTP device mtp://xiaomi_poco_x3_nfc_978e6e28/?busnum=001&devnum=026
Has anyone had this issue or otherwise got MTP devices to work? The above error is not very descriptive. I can also mention that Clementine displays pretty much the same behavior.
I'm on Arch Linux running strawberry-git and the phone is, as above, a Poco X3.
Somewhat off-topic, I think it'd be amazing to be able to create virtual devices as folders wherever you want, without being tied to MTP or USB mass media. MusicBee does this and I miss that feature a lot, but MB works poorly via wine and Strawberry feels better to me in general.

Make sure the phone isn't mounted, if it's mounted it will block access.
Then it should be possible to connect it by double clicking under devices.
You should be prompted on the phone once connected if you want to transfer files, make sure that you select it in time.
This does not seem to change anything.... The device is not mounted, I don't have Dolphin open or anything.... I wonder if something with KDE is interfering with it?
Update: I managed to get it to get past that stage by attempting it fresh after a reboot, but now it's stuck on the "Loading MTP device..." stage. Progress, I suppose?
E: It just took a while, nevermind.
Sadly this feature is less... featured than I had expected it to be. I will probably write a post somewhere else on the forum discussing potential improvements.
