Mounting digicam


I can't figure out what device my digicam is. When I plug it in and turn it on and type dmesg I get

usb 3-2: new USB full speed device using address 8

Additionally, /proc/bus/usb/devices has the following entry:

T: Bus=03 Lev=01 Prnt=01 Port=01 Cnt=02 Dev#= 8 Spd=12 MxCh= 0
D: Ver= 1.10 Cls=ff(vend.) Sub=ff Prot=ff MxPS=32 #Cfgs= 1
P: Vendor=04a9 ProdID=304f Rev= 0.01
S: Manufacturer=Canon Inc.
S: Product=PowerShot A10
C:* #Ifs= 1 Cfg#= 1 Atr=c0 MxPwr=100mA
I: If#= 0 Alt= 0 #EPs= 3 Cls=ff(vend.) Sub=ff Prot=ff Driver=(none)
E: Ad=81(I) Atr=02(Bulk) MxPS= 64 Ivl=0ms
E: Ad=02(O) Atr=02(Bulk) MxPS= 64 Ivl=0ms
E: Ad=83(I) Atr=03(Int.) MxPS= 64 Ivl=96ms

So it seems that the camera is being detected, but I can't mount it as /dev/sda1 or /dev/sd## for that matter. I tried several devices under /dev/usb/ also.

I have a Canon Powershot A10, using Fedora Core 2

What output do you get from
lsmod
?

I'm not sure it is an USB storage device. Try accessing it with the "Digital Camera Tool" instead.

Ah, I was successfully able to grab files using "Digital Camera Tool." Guess it automounts.

It would be nice to know how to figure out what device it's mounted as though... just as general linux knowledge, and for when I switch to a different distro...

Thanks!

Those are your loaded modules, I was curious whether the
Cam is a sotrage device or not, but since there's no usb-storage
module loaded I guess it isn't ...

If it were, and had been detected automagically, you could
see the device in either "cat /proc/scsi/scsi" or when you do
"fdisk -l" (as root).


Cheers,
Tink
