camera problem, one works, other dont


I can insert the card from my sons camera into the slot labeled sd/mmc and it reads it fine and everything works as it should. My camera's card fits the slot labeled cf/md and the computer doesnt read it at all and computer says there is no media. I can also plug it into the USB and it does the same thing. The camera works on my wifes computer and she can get a picture from it and load it on a floppy and then i can work with it ok. My camera is a evision clearview. What can i do?

I'll ask a potentially silly question: you made sure the card is inserted the
right way?
As for USB, it would help to know which software you're using to access camera
devices, and if you could check the output of dmesg and lsusb (after you've
plugged the camera in via USB) and post it here, that would be great.


Cheers,
Tink

Hi Tink, yeah the card only fits one way. As far as software we have been trying F Spot photo manager, if thats what your asking. I dont know what dmesg or lsusb is or how to use it. I need alot of help!

dmesg & lsusb are two tools you use on the command line.
Open a shell (terminal), and type them, followed by an enter.

Tink, after lsusb, it reads.

Does it make any diference that this clearview camera came from AOL and the numbers under each picture are prefixed with AOL? Also last night that if i insert the camera card in the slot and go to "computer and click on the usb, it says "cant mount file", instead of no media.

Just to verify: the outputs above are from after the device was plugged in?

OK. The output from dmesg kind of suggests that Linux doesn't know much
about the camera then. It thinks of it as a HID (Human Interface Device)
rather than mass storage.

In the list of lsusb - can you recognise which one of the devices is the
camera? If you can't, can you please post lsusb output W/O the camera
connected to the machine?



Cheers,
Tink

Tink, this morning i stumbled across a way to read the cf card from the camera. After inserting i go to system, administration, storage device manager. It shows an extra storage device called sdb. I click on it and it opens sdb1. I click on mount and then a icon shows up on the desktop. I click on the icon and it opens showing a folder labeled AOL. I click on the aol and up comes my pictures. I dont know if there is a way to make it more convenient or not?? What do you think.
