Distribution: Desktop:Windows XP Server:Nothing right now :(
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
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.
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.
