yes i should have looked around and searched in the first place but i was too excited about getting the camera today, sorry

anyways, from the link above, i have found that i need to mount my camera as a usb mass storage device
but i can't find anything that explains how to do that, ive been looking for a while on how to do that but i cant find anything useful

what do i have to add to mount it as a drive?

Sometimes a:
Plug in camera in usb slot
mount -t vfat /dev/sda1 /mnt/sony (after a mkdir sony)

Just works. If it does, cool. If not:
modprobe usb-storage

And try again.

I think kudzu might help you with all that though.

Cool

ok i did both of those, and this is what it said

[root@Linux tom]# mount -t vfat /dev/sda1 /mnt/camera
mount: /dev/sda1 is not a valid block device
[root@Linux tom]# modprobe usb-storage
bash: modprobe: command not found

I don't know if this helps or if you already checked it out but there is a link off of the site that akaBeaVis posted which says how you mount a USB Mass Storage Device.
http://www.linux-usb.org/USB-guide/x498.html

Also when you followed MasterC's directions did you make a directory under /mnt/ called *sony* or in your case you were calling it *camera* for /mnt/camera? Well, I am linux Newbie so maybe what i am saying is really pointless. Have a good one.

Yep, that's exactly what I did for my canon powershot s100 elph, just got me a pcmcia reader for the card for 20 bux and it's quite useful for other things as well, good for you.

hi,

just to add my bit...

i use suse 8.2, and it's got really well resolved hotplugging support built in. i use a sony dsc-p5 - just plug the thing into a spare usb port and a few seconds later, voila! a device appears on my desktop, ready for use.

of course, i know it's possible to set this up on any late distro with hotplug support, it's just really well executed with suse (i don't work for them, honest!), and works out of the box.
