MTP is where your device shows up as a "media player" or camera and is not assigned a drive letter. You can still access your files, but is much more restricted to where you can only copy, paste and delete. In order to modify or even rename you must copy them first, then do your modifications and then push them back. They did it this way to better protect the Android filesystem.
Now, with your S5 it is still possible to mount as mass storage. You will need root. If you have root, get terminal emulator and enter in su (to get su privileges) and then type "setprop persist.sys.usb.config mass_storage". DOING THIS DOES THE JOB BUT CAN POTENTIALLY MESS UP YOUR DEVICE. DO NOT USE THIS METHOD WITH MAC DEVICES. ONLY WINDOWS/LINUX. Windows XP recommended. Hope this helps!
