My camera isn't being recognized?


I have a Casio Exilim EX-Z9.

The memory card that is in the camera has some back up files of my old hard drive, so it's really important I'm able to get my computer to recognize my camera.

I have OpenSuse 11.2, and I tried to get Digikam to recognize it, but it wouldn't let me access files.

Is this a USB attached camera? If yes, if you open a konsole and run the command '/usr/sbin/lsusb' without the quotes, is your camera listed?

By far the easiest way to get files off the memory card is to buy a card reader. They are not expensive, and are available at most camera stores. Buy one for the type of memory card you have. Plug that in, many systems will auto mount the memory card. Once mounted, you can drag and drop any files on the card.

Yes, it is. When I ran that command, it gave me this:
Bus 001 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub
Bus 001 Device 003: ID 05ac:1263 Apple, Inc.
Bus 002 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub
Bus 003 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub
Bus 004 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub
Bus 004 Device 002: ID 07cf:110c Casio Computer Co., Ltd


Thanks for the tip, but I don't have any money to be buying something else to read this card.

This tells us the USB bus is working, and you can see the hardware.

Does this camera support MTP mode? You will have to look in the configuration, some cameras do, some don't. If it does not, I dought it will work with linux.

If it has MTP mode, then it should work. Try it if you can find it in the doc. If not, then you can get a card reader, or install something like VirtualBox, and install a windoze system. Then install the software that came with the camera.

Yes, but the hardware can't be seen anywhere besides terminal.

The main problem I'm having is SusE is new to me,
My camera worked and read absolutely perfectly in Ubuntu.

How can I even access the ability to look at the properties of my camera?

Did it automount for you? Cameras, if they will work look like an external disk on the USB bus. It is possible you will have to manually mount the camera. When you plug the device in a device will be created in /dev. It is a matter of figuring out what gets created, making a mount point, and then issuing a mount command. I can't tell you what device will be created when you hot plug it. That depends on other hardware that is there.

The mount point is just an empty directory. Most systems have a /mnt directory, and a /media directory. You can pick either, do cd to say media, then do a 'mkdir camera'. Once you know what device gets created, then the mount looks like :

mount -t vfat /dev/sdb1 /media/camera

This assumes the file system type is fat, the new device is sdb1 and you make the mount point as I suggest.

As I said earlier, it may not work. A lot depends on the camera it self. However you know it did work on ubuntu, so there is no good reason it won't work on Suse.

It automatically mounted in Ubunutu, however, in SusE, it doesn't show up anywhere.
Not in the /mnt or /media, I checked basically every folder to make sure.

The thing that is even more frustrating is that when I tried to mount it into Digikam, it read that there was a camera present. But I can't find it anywhere else, and Digikam won't let me access the camera; just see that it actually does indeed exist.
