Please help me with my digital camera


Hi.
I'm using Red Hat Linux 9 running on kernel 2.4.20. I have a digital camera, Epson PhotoPC 2100Z that I want to connect to a USB-port. And I don't know what to do, can anyone please help me?

you could try mounting it as a regular mass storage device, maybe something like:

mount -t vfat /dev/sda1 /mnt/camera


then you could copy the pictures to your disk:

cp /mnt/camera/*.jpg ~/

I get this error:

mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/sda1, or too many mounted file systems

lsmod | grep usb

okay, try these, let me know what kinda errors you get, or if one of these is successful...

these are basically the same, except we're not specifying partitions this time...

i believe usb mass storage doesn't use partitions... anyways, here you go:

mount -t vfat /dev/sda /mnt/camera

mount -t vfat /dev/sdb /mnt/camera

mount -t vfat /dev/sdc /mnt/camera

mount -t vfat /dev/sdd /mnt/camera

sorry for double-posting, but i figured out something.

I booted up my mandrake 10 hdd and mounted the camera there and it worked on /dev/sda1

I talked with a guy, and he said that I maybe didn't have support for USB or something like that, or i didn't have the right modules.

I hope this help you guys to figure out why it doesn't work on Red Hat
