Sony camera not recognized


Hi. I have a Sony T-1 camera and I am unable to mount it using Slackware 10.1. I've had luck mouting my external hard drive and pen drive, but not the camera.

Here is the tail end of dmesg when I attach my camera:

hub.c: new USB device 00:1d.7-1, assigned address 5
usb.c: USB device 5 (vend/prod 0x54c/0x4e) is not claimed by any active driver.

I don't know what step to take next to fix this problem.

Using Fedora I am able to mount and unmount without any problems.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

I tried gphoto2 command line style. Worked like a charm (when running as root)!! I'm still trying to figure out setting permissions so I don't have to run as root. I feel like I can figure that out in the manual for gphoto2.

#gphoto2 --auto-detect
Model Port
----------------------------------------------------------
Sony DSC-F707V (PTP mode) usb:


# gphoto2 --summary
Camera summary:
Model: Sony Digital Still Camera
device version: 02.0000
serial number: (null)
Vendor extension ID: 0x00000000
Vendor extension description: (null)


# gphoto2 --list-files
There are no files in folder '/'.
There are 4 files in folder '/store_00010001':
#1 DSC01690.JPG 2379 KB 2592x1944 image/jpeg
#2 DSC01691.JPG 2118 KB 2592x1944 image/jpeg
#3 DSC01692.JPG 1631 KB 2592x1944 image/jpeg
#4 MOV01693.MPG 5345 KB video/mpeg

#gphoto2 --get-all-files


That definitely works!! Thank you so much! I appreciate the help!

Glad to be off help
you might find the GUI front ends useful (DigiKam, or the built in one from KDE) which connect to it
about not being root have a look here
