Find out what file format it uses. Find out what (USB?) port its using, i.e. run

cat /proc/bus/usb/devices and paste the info here... If your lucky (and your cam is like mine) you can mount it with the same method you would use on a usb flash drive.. there are howto's on that around so google it up...

Not much time these days, so hope that helps...

I tried to find the file format and the USB port by myself but I just can't handle it yet. Here is the result from cat /proc/bus/usb/devices:

T: Bus=01 Lev=01 Prnt=01 Port=05 Cnt=01 Dev#= 6 Spd=480 MxCh= 0
D: Ver= 2.00 Cls=ef(unk. ) Sub=02 Prot=01 MxPS=64 #Cfgs= 1
P: Vendor=04da ProdID=231a Rev= 1.00
S: Manufacturer=Panasonic
S: Product=DVC
S: SerialNumber=d1493460
C:* #Ifs= 2 Cfg#= 1 Atr=c0 MxPwr= 2mA
I: If#= 0 Alt= 0 #EPs= 1 Cls=0e(unk. ) Sub=01 Prot=00 Driver=(none)
E: Ad=86(I) Atr=03(Int.) MxPS= 64 Ivl=64ms
I: If#= 1 Alt= 0 #EPs= 0 Cls=0e(unk. ) Sub=02 Prot=00 Driver=(none)
I: If#= 1 Alt= 1 #EPs= 1 Cls=0e(unk. ) Sub=02 Prot=00 Driver=(none)
E: Ad=81(I) Atr=05(Isoc) MxPS= 492 Ivl=125us

Thanks

I believe your camera uses Exif 2.2

I tried this:
root@toltek:/etc# dmesg | tail
usb 1-6: USB disconnect, address 4
usb 1-6: new high speed USB device using ehci_hcd and address 5
scsi0 : SCSI emulation for USB Mass Storage devices
usb-storage: device found at 5
usb-storage: waiting for device to settle before scanning
Vendor: Matshita Model: DVC Rev: 1.00
Type: Direct-Access ANSI SCSI revision: 00
sd 0:0:0:0: Attached scsi removable disk sda
sd 0:0:0:0: Attached scsi generic sg0 type 0
usb-storage: device scan complete

and then I entered in /etc/fstab the line:
/dev/sda5 /mnt/usb vfat noauto,owner 0 0

Then I tried to open the folder where I have mounted the device but I got No medium found
