mount point for digital camera / usb storage


if I connect my digital camera with the computer on an ubuntu desktop I get an address in the file browser:

But I don't know the actual address in the filesystem. I tried to find that without success.

Actually I cannot mount my card reader if used with a compact flash card. Other devices are mounted automatically. This CF cannot be mounted it seems. At least I do not know how.

Anybody there who could shed some light on this?

try ~/run/media/<you>

Alternatively you can set mount points in /etc/fstab. Probably a module missing with the card reader.
