Problems with USB devices RH9


Ok, so i decided to stop asking questions in this forum and go away and learn some things for myself, and i have to say that i'm getting there, but i seem to be running around in circles regarding my usb devices. I am running redhat 9 on a compaq Evo N800c laptop, when i first installed redhat i could right click o the desktop and go

Disks > Cd-rom

and explore the cd that was in my drive.

I then added to this

Disks > USB - Stick so i could explore my usb stick, in a similar fashion i now want to add and explore my digital camera.

I can get to my camera pictures by typing:

mount /dev/sdb1 /mnt/

then going to the /mnt/ file, then dcim, then 100nikon... all my pictures are here, but at one point i could simply right click > Disks > Camera and all my pics were in this folder, but the camera option is no longer there, also the cd - rom option does not work

here is my fstab:

Code:
LABEL=/                 /                       ext3    defaults        1 1
LABEL=/boot             /boot                   ext3    defaults        1 2
none                    /dev/pts                devpts  gid=5,mode=620  0 0
none                    /proc                   proc    defaults        0 0
none                    /dev/shm                tmpfs   defaults        0 0
/dev/hda3               swap                    swap    defaults        0 0
/dev/cdrom              /mnt/cdrom              udf,iso9660 noauto,owner,kudzu,ro 0 0
/dev/sda		/mnt/USB-Stick	vfat	noauto,users,umask=0	0 0
/dev/sdb1               /mnt/camera             auto    noauto,owner,kudzu 0 0
See, i'm coming along huh? fstabs and everything, but this one has me stumped, as usual, thanks for the help

Maybe you could add the device in the GUI. You can create a new device in KDE or GNOME and then access it by click. Check that by rightclicking on the desktop or some other folder... It's like creating a shortcut, a new directory and such

Ok, that sounds like an idea, but i don't seem to have the option to add a device under right click, any clues? Also, any idea why the cd player stops when i mount and unmount my usb devices?

Right click in KDE (desktop) and choose Create new-->Link to Device. Choose the one you want to add.
