HP Photosmart 945 and RH9... howto?


i use gnome on a RH9 laptop that has gtkam, but in the list of cameras i can not find mine. for some reason up until today the camera has worked perfect uploading the photos to a winXP workstation i have at my office, but tonight it deciede to refuse to work any longer and is crashing after all extended troubleshooting steps have been taken including reboots, reinstall of software, etc...

so im about pissed as pissed can be with this camera and windows, not to mention the 130M ziped driver set that loads so much junk into your computer its rediculous, id like to just use my laptop to get the photos off my camera and go forward from there.

so any and all help is greatly appriciated to help out this extreemly vex user of yet an other POS HP device that when works is awsome, but its the getting it to STAY working that is the problem.

just some FYI as to what i have done...

i added the following line to my /etc/fstab

/dev/sda1 /mnt/camera auto noauto,user,ower 0 0

i have made a directory called camera in /mnt

here is what i am getting:

Code:
usb.c: USB device 20 (vend/prod 0x3f0/0x4502) is not claimed by any active driver.
[root@raylap root]# mount /dev/sda1
mount: you must specify the filesystem type
[root@raylap root]# cd /mnt
[root@raylap mnt]# mkdir camera
[root@raylap mnt]# ls
camera  cdrom  floppy
[root@raylap mnt]# mount /mnt/camera
mount: /dev/sda1 is not a valid block device
what next?

more updates...

i followed a script from :


http://www.ssc.com/pipermail/linux-l...er/013599.html


Code:
[root@raylap media]# /home/ray/camera.sh
umount: /media/camera/: not mounted
mount: /dev/sdc1 is not a valid block device
Couldn't mount the camera
[root@raylap media]# /home/ray/camera.sh
umount: /media/camera/: not mounted
mount: /dev/sda1 is not a valid block device
Couldn't mount the camera
[root@raylap media]# /home/ray/camera.sh
umount: /media/camera/: not mounted
mount: /dev/sdb1 is not a valid block device
Couldn't mount the camera
but as you can see i still can not quite get the /etc/fstab worked out for the camera. FYI, the camera does report that it is connected to the computer when i turn it on, so the USB is working and the camera is seeing that there is something at the other end, now just to get the data off.
