You can access them from the command line or the GUI.

First, make sure that the USB wire is plugged-in and that the camera is on.
Then open a terminal window and type:
mount -t vfat /dev/sda1 /mnt/camera
You will have to navigate the directory structure in order to get your pictures.

When you are finished with the camera, don't forget to un-mount it.
umount /dev/sda1
Also, you can try to get them via the GUI.
Follow the steps established by Mandrake.

Didn't work for me either

I am trying to get my camera to work also. I put in the code and this is what I got back:

mount point /mnt/camera does not exist

Do I need to create a directory first or something?

at me works

first of all chceck if your camera is working as usb storage.
next when you connect it and turn on try: cat /proc/scsi/scsi
to see if it works. you should get sth like that:

Host: scsi1 Channel: 00 Id: 00 Lun: 00
Vendor: DIGITAL Model: CAMERA DC2300 Rev: 1.00
Type: Direct-Access ANSI SCSI revision: 02

you may also try lsusb (which is in /usr/sbin), you should get sth like:
Bus 001 Device 006: ID 0784:1688 Vivitar Inc. Vivicam 3665

yes. that's vivicam :P

if everything is ok put appriopriate line in /etc/fstab. at me it's:

/dev/sda1 /mnt/removable auto user,noauto,umask=0,exec 0 0

and for an end you should do:
mount /dev/sda1 /mnt/removable

and that's all

if it won't work try /dev/sdb1 or /dev/scsi/host1/bus0/target0/lun0/part1

Wow this is an old post I had completely forgot about it. But thanks for the help and advice anyway.
I have since fixed the problem and will share here and now in case anyone else finds themselves with the same failed setup that I did.
In the end it was a kernel problem.
I am running Mandrake 9.2 but the same problem was in 9.1 as well.
I downloaded a kernel by "Obiwan" from the Mandrake website
The correct number is.2.4.22-21mm.2mdk

Since then I have had no probs.

Hope that this may help someone.
