Angry I can find the camera but can't find the images?

I have an Olympus C-3020 digital camera. When I plugin the USB cable an icon appears on the desktop labeled FLPhoto. When I click on the icon two windows open, the basic FLPhoto window and a Camera window. Also a warning message appears stating 'Failed to initialize camera'. As a result I am unable to download the images from the camera. I tried running a program called 'Digikam'. I did a scan for my camera and it found C-2040. I figured if it found it then I could download my images. I try to download the images and can't initialize camera either to download images. The computer sees a camera connected but I can't see the images on it. Anybody have any idea what I have to do? Thanks, Stephen

Thanks for the reply however I found the problem. I had a permissions problem and a mount problem. After making a mount point fot the camera root could access it. Then after some sreaching and trail and error I was able to get the permissions problem solved. Now it's working fine. Thanks again for replying, Stephen
