digi camera ..problem.not detected

I have digital camera.(Fedora core 4)
Which i inserted in USB port which was detected.
Which gives only the harddisk partition.

[root@hall43 hall4]# /sbin/fdisk -l

Disk /dev/hda: 80.0 GB, 80026361856 bytes
255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 9729 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes

Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System
/dev/hda1 * 1 261 2096451 6 FAT16
/dev/hda2 262 274 104422+ 83 Linux
/dev/hda3 275 2303 16297942+ 83 Linux
/dev/hda4 2304 9729 59649345 5 Extended
/dev/hda5 2304 2428 1004031 82 Linux swap
/dev/hda6 2429 9729 58645251 83 Linux
[root@hall43 hall4]#

Is there any to lookup the connected hardware.
I have restarted my pc also but still has the problem.I have restarted all the services.
Is there any to list all the hardwares connected to my pc.
Or the problem related to modules?

it may be that linux doesn't have the right drivers for your cam

"tail -f /var/log/messages" or "dmesg" should detail the device being used, typically /dev/sda1 for USB devices. It will act as a mass storage device - search the forums for instructions on configuring this, but you basically mount the camera into a directory of your choice and read/write photos from there For viewing connected USB devices, do "lsusb".

how does dmesg will get the device details if the USB is not having device drivers loaded.
