Okay, in this case, the use of the internal storage is probably
not as easy as it should be. I fought with a Motorola "flip-phone"
via USB and finally gave up: The manufacturer doesn't seem to be
interested in following established standards and procedures. :-(
Anyway, checking out MTP and reviewing the device's settings
can't make things worse. Maybe it's still possible to access
it somehow. (If not - why not remove the micro SD card and use
it in an adapter or internal reader? I'm doing this with my
digital camera and my "MP3 player shift-phone".)

Looking at it is mandatory, and the things you need to look at
are beneath your fingers. :-)
