Cannot mount USB camera Panasonic Lumix under Suse 9.3


Hi!

I have a Dell Latitude C840 with Suse 9.3 (Kernel 2.6.11.4-21.9-default).
I also have a digital camera, a Panasonic Lumix DMC-F1.

But the two don't work together...!

lsusb:
Bus 002 Device 003: ID 04da:2372 Panasonic (Matsushita) Lumix DMC-FZ10 Camera
Bus 002 Device 001: ID 0000:0000
Bus 001 Device 002: ID 046d:c025 Logitech, Inc. MX500 Optical Mouse
Bus 001 Device 001: ID 0000:0000

Interesting, it's recongnising it as a more recent model (FZ10).

dmesg | less
usb 2-1: new full speed USB device using uhci_hcd and address 4
scsi2 : SCSI emulation for USB Mass Storage devices
usb-storage: device found at 4
usb-storage: waiting for device to settle before scanning
Vendor: MATSHITA Model: DMC-F1 Rev: 0100
Type: Direct-Access ANSI SCSI revision: 02
SCSI device sdb: 250880 512-byte hdwr sectors (128 MB)
sdb: Write Protect is off
sdb: Mode Sense: 04 00 00 00
sdb: assuming drive cache: write through
SCSI device sdb: 250880 512-byte hdwr sectors (128 MB)
sdb: Write Protect is off
sdb: Mode Sense: 04 00 00 00
sdb: assuming drive cache: write through
sdb: sdb1
Attached scsi removable disk sdb at scsi2, channel 0, id 0, lun 0
Attached scsi generic sg0 at scsi2, channel 0, id 0, lun 0, type 0
usb-storage: device scan complete

Looks OK to me.
But I cannot mount.
Nor does it do so automatically - neither the gnome-volume-manager nor the SUSE-plugger / watcher.

Interestingly, it was similar under Suse 9.1, but 1 out of 5 times of switching the camera off and back on, I would get an Icon on the desktop.

I have an iPod mini and no trouble with it (not of that kind, at least...)

Can anyone help me?
It would be greatly appreciated.

Cheers,

Oerz

Welcome to LQ!
Look, I doubt anyone can help you based on this short description. You want to mount it and you can't. So, what is the error message? What's the output of 'mount' command?

Oops!

Ooops!
Of course - thanks for the hint!!

mount -t auto /dev/sdb1 /media/camera

mount: /dev/sdb1 is not a valid block device

dmesg does not give me any additional information.
