If your camera is like most usb cameras you can mount the file system like this:

At a command prompt, type mount /dev/sda1 /mnt/camera, where /mnt/camera is your mount point and press [Enter].

Then you just browse to your pictures like any other file system. If you have SCSI devices in your system you may need to use another device than /dev/sda1. USB memory keys will usually map to the same device (/dev/sda1).

If your camera is not set as a Mass Storage Device, or if it is somehow incompatible, then you might try using gphoto2 to pull the pictures off...

The /etc/fstab file contains what filesystem you have on the drive. Since your camera is not in there the command must be:

mount /dev/sda1 -t vfat /mnt/lyra

Where vfat is a guess since it runs on your windows box. The /dev/sda1 could also vary if you have "other" SCSI-discs. Since USB-drives usually map to be SCSI-discs you might end up with the disc on /dev/sda2 or ...3 or whatever. In this case the internal drive could become /dev/sda1 and internal /dev/sda2..
