I have edited my /etc/fstab to include my digital camera:
/dev/sdb1 /mnt/camera vfat noauto, user, ro 0 0
Now with the above I keep getting an error message saying mount point does not exist. However if I enter this:
mount /dev/sdb1 /mnt
The camera mounts no problem and all is well.
Also the camera seem to swap between sda1 and sdb1 for no apparent reason I could do with a way to 'fix' it to one call out device. My USB floppy seem to allways get 'attached' to sda so what is going on here is strange.
The scsi addresses are dynamically assigned to usb mass storage devices. What you could do is write a hotplug script which mounts the camera or updates /etc/fstab when the camera is plugged in. This is quite easy if you are familiar with basic shell scripting, check out http://linux-hotplug.sourceforge.net/ for documentation.
