Aah, someone suggests the other player I purchased. (Also can be 2GB.)

Unfortunately, in the United States, the firmware loaded on the device
requires use of MTP, which has nascent support at the time that
gNewSense was released. (I believe Rhythmbox has a plugin.)

The "world" firmware allows for USB Mass Storage connections. The
procedure for changing the firmware involves leaked Samsung tools and
proprietary operating systems; the Mass Storage firmware latest version
is always 1 below the MTP version (1.12 vs 1.13), presumably to keep
users from doing this very thing. My guess it's some misguided copyright
infringement prevention or due to Microsoft DRM support.

The Vorbis support also is known to not like very high or very low

The manufacturer was unhelpful when I asked about GNU/Linux support.

Stay away.
