Digital camera access problem

First the (maybe) usefull informations :
I'm using redhat 9 with their latest kernel aka 2.4.20-18 (or 19
I've a little digical cam Umax 470 (/proc/usb/bus/device call it viewquest 1310)
I tried to mount it but it doesn't work, I got a "mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bla bla..." message....
the cam is supposed to support the usb mass storage protocol, wich at least seems to work because I fanaly get a complete dump of the memory using dd (dd if=/dev/sda of=/tmp/pics)
trying to mount the /tmp/pics file on a loop device give the same error...
So I tried fdisk /dev/sda; fdisk says that there is a error in the partion table (number of physical head is different than the number of logical head), I think the mount error comes from here but don't know how to solve the problem...
I hope someone could help me, or give another place to look

How did you try mounting it? Did you add the correct lines to fstab or did you use the /mnt/camera hopefully created by redhat? My experience with digital cameras and linux is quite good, I didnt have to do much, the correct mount points were created and it was just a simple "mount /mnt/camera", before I found out I did however fiddle a lot (in vain )!

You should be able to format the card through the camera itself.
Nice information bout usb:

Cheers, Klod
