You should try accessing your camera with something like gphoto2 (from 
ports) as it seems to report PTP (picture transfer protocol) mode.
Some Nikon cameras had the option to select the USB transfer mode
betweek PTP and mass storage.
On mine (Coolpix 4600) it is located under Setup->Interface->USB-> and 
then Select PTP or "Mass storage"
