I recently borrowed a friend's Canon digital EOS camera, and can't figure out how to mount the camera. Most USB devices automount (I'm using Suse 10.0). I can access the camera with digikam or f-spot, and download the photos that way, but I would like to be able to mount the device so I can use the file browser or command line if I want. Digikam indicates that the camera is operating in PTP mode.
If I use usbview when the camera is hooked up, I see the following underneath the EHCI controller

the last line from /var/log/messages is:
kernel: usb 3-1: new high speed USB device using ehci_hcd and address 18
Obviously, the kernel recognizes the device, but which device do I use to mount it? It doesn't show up as a SCSI device, so /dev/sdb1 doesn't work (dev/sda1 is a SCSI CD burner). Do I need to load a kernel module? I've read that Canon cameras don't always play nicely, and everyone seems to just use digikam, gphoto2, or other software to pull pictures from the camera. I've also tried the card reader, but it behaves like the camera. Any advice would be appreciated.
Got an EOS300D camera myself. Don't mount your camera! Use gphoto which provides an option to download your pics from your camera. Besides, if u plugin your camera and switch on KDE wil offer u the possibility to open a browser which will, after opening the right folders, give u access to all your pics. Can't test further now because the accupac of my camera is empty Good luck anyway !!!
