Short answer: No
long answer: Nope. WP8 does not use a "regular" file system (FAT or NTFS) and can therefore not be accessed as a flash drive. That's why the System uses the MTP layer.
Phone: Nokia Lumia 920, retired my HTC 7 Mozart
Tablet: Acer Iconia W510 (Windows 8) - finally got rid of the horrible Samsung Galaxy Tab (P7510)
