pci usb2 card and mass storage. Er how???


Hi guys,
problem.. have installed a Belkin 3 port usb2 pci card. I am running Mandrake 9.0 with kernel 2.4.19-16mdk and wish to use a digital camera via mass storage on the usb2 card. Basically I do not know how to do this and need some pointers. When I do 'modprobe usb-ohci' the usb card appears to be detected ok according to dmesg but how do I get it to use the mass storage driver, how does it know when I have connected a camera. I do not appear to have any new directories appear in /dev after the insmod so cannot try to mount the new file system. Nothing appears under /proc/bus/usb and under /proc/bus/pci/devices I have entries for usb ohci.

I suppose what I need is someone to tell me how to configure this lot.
Any help really appreciated.

Below are the output from lspci and dmesg.

lspci...
00:00.0 Host bridge: Silicon Integrated Systems [SiS] 5597 [SiS5582] (rev 10)

Hi BashTin -

assuming your card is working, here is a nice camera mounting howto - it's directed to Olympus, but the steps generally apply to many cameras - might help get you started:

also, you can run a search for your device here:

Hi Genesee,
thanks for that. Gave me a few pointers and I now know which modules I should be using and what to check for. It seems however that something is 'broke' as when I plug in my usb camera I get lots of kernel memory paging errors (I got exactly the same errors when trying to get the onboard usb1 working). So I think I am going to install Mandrake 9.1 to see if that 'fixes' the kernel errors.

Thanks for listening :-) BashTin.
