Lightbulb Digital Camera Mounting

I have been trying to get my digital camera to work under mandrake 9.0. It uses usb mass storage, and I have got as far as trying to mount it, but all the example lines for fstab I have tried don't work. The closest I have got is:

/dev/sda /mnt/usbcam auto noauto,user 0 0

which gives me an input/output error, and says to specify the filesystem, when trying 'mount /mnt/usbcam'

My camera name appears right in /proc/scsi/scsi, coming up as Deluxe Classic Cam, which it has got from the camera itself, so I know that much is working. It is just the mounting that has me stumped.

try modifying it to /dev/sda1.
/dev/sda is the controller.

And try using this one

/dev/sda1 /mnt/<mountpoint> vfat noauto,owner,user,kudzu 0 0
