USB ports work with flash drive but not camera
Hello Friends. I have got the USB port to work and I can use a flash drive but when I try my digital camera it does not do anything when I try to mount it. I thought it was the same as using a flash drive, is it not?
Thank you for any insight for steps that I can take to get my digital camera working.
I am using slackware 11 and KDE 3.5
dmesg is your friend!
It should indicate the if the camera can act as a mass storage device. You get a /dev/sd?1 ... just mount that filesystem ... it's usually fat.
If this is not the case, please report camera model and distro.
When I plug in the camera and turn it on, this is what dmesg shows.
hub.c: new USB device 00:1d.7-3.1, assigned address 3
usb.c: USB device 3 (vend/prod 0x40a/0x57b) is not claimed by any active driver.
when I try to mount it in console I get the message /dev/sda1 is not a valid block device and I also tried to mount /mnt/flash.
I just downloaded gphoto and the library, when I do gphoto2 --auto-detect it sees the camera name/model but I dont know what else to do.
The camera is a kodak easyshare CX7430
I got it.
I Downloaded gphoto2 and the library (for slackware, tgz file)from here....
turned on the camera
typed gphoto --auto-detect
then typed gphoto2 -P
and it copied all the pics to my downloads folder.
Dont know why it chose there but at least it worked.
