USB Jenoptik Digital Camera Access


I have followed all of the how-to's, documents, and instructions available (even on this forum) about accessing a Digital Camera, but I cannot.

Camera Details:

Jenoptik JD C1.3 LCD

SmartCard AND onboard storage. USB interface.

Data that /proc/scsi/scsi provides for this device:

Code:
Host: scsi2 Channel: 00 Id: 00 Lun: 00   
  Vendor:          Model: 1.3M DigitalCAM  Rev: 1.00   
   Type:   Direct-Access                    ANSI SCSI revision: 02
And when attempting to "mount -t vfat /dev/sdb /mnt/camera" or any other combination of scsi devices I get this error:

Code:
mount -t vfat /dev/sdb /mnt/camera
mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/sdb,
       or too many mounted file systems
Any help would be greatly appreciated!

I was just able to get my Sony DSC-P31 working last night. My distro (RH9) automatically detected the device and put an entry for sda1 into my fstab file. That entry had "AUTO" instead of VFAT.

Try using "AUTO" in the mount command--hopefully that will solve the problem...

I am getting this error now:

Code:
root@dark:/# mount -t AUTO /dev/sdb /mnt/camera/
/dev/sdb: Input/output error
mount: you must specify the filesystem type

you may have to specify "vfat" after all.

three other questions:

what distro are you using?
are you logged in as root?
did you remember to create the /mnt/camera directory?

best of luck!

Tried vfat too >

I am using Slackware 9.0 with the 2.4.20 Kernel.
I am using the su -c "blah blah" -- so yes
su -c "mkdir /mnt/camera" was the first thing I did :P
