Question Sony DSC-P200


Hi everyone,

I recently got a Sony DSC-P200 thinking that it would, like most Sony Cybershots, be Linux compatible. I haven't, however, been able to get it to work. When I plug it in (in normal mode), the KDE Info Center gives the following output:

in PTP. I don't know if this is anything of importance, though, as this is my first endevour into digital photography with Linux.

I'm willing to do some coding, but I will need lots of help if I must do so (what to work on, etc.)

A couple of times while in normal mode, my PC detected my camera as a DSC-S75.

Has anyone else had any luck getting a P200 working?

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks

P.S. I'm using debian.

Hi
What kernel are you using ? 2.4 or 2.6 ?
When plugged what happens if you try to mount it as root
mount -t auto /dev/sda1 /mnt/somewhere/created/first ?
Ciao

Oops. sry. It won't work in either kernel (cannot find special device sda). I'm using kernel 2.6.11 on a Duron.

I've used a DSC-P7 (I think that's the model) without problems in PTP mode..

For software, try digikam; if the camera is in PTP mode, open up digikam and scan for connected cameras - your camera should be found..

Oh, and yes, the model ID on the camera I've used is also different depending on which mode the camera is set to!
