It seems That pcmanfm is trying to mount the phones to transfer files to them. Do you have a use case where you want your users to be able to auto mount removable media like if they brought in a flash drive. 

Turning off automatically mounting might be a work around for the errors but would have the side effect of making it harder for your users to use flash drives or usb hard drives. 

Also if this is not pcmanfm saying which program is giving the error would be helpful info so volunteers can solve your problem faster.
