camera mounting problem

Generally, whenever I plug in a USB device, be it flash drive, ipod or digital camera, I simply throw down "dmesg | tail" and then mount it using whatever /dev/* it gives me. However, when I plugged in my new camera, I got this:
usb 2-1: new full speed USB device using address 2
usb 2-1: Product: HP Photosmart M22 Camera
usb 2-1: Manufacturer: HEWLETT-PACKARD
usb 2-1: SerialNumber: ECN5AVA20MX0
No /dev in sight.
I tried google and the search function, but I couldn't find anything that could help me figure out how to mount "usb address 2".

How do I get into the contents of my camera?

You might need to configure the camera flash card to be a hard drive inside the camera. There is a way to do this in the menus. Just start exploring. Once the flash card is a hard drive, linux will recognize it as a hard drive.
