The first thing I'd suggest is upgrading your libmtp version as there's
been a number of improvements since then.
I think .10 is one which will quit if you don't have permission to access
the usb device. If you start Amarok from a console, you'd probably see
something along the lines of usb_claim_interface: operation not permitted.
Make sure you have correct permissions as outlined on the Amarok wiki:
