Hello,

Before you plug it in, run the following:
Code:
tail -f /var/log/messages
After you enter that, plug your device in, and note any new information that comes up, and paste that in here if you can. /var/log/messages usually is the log that displays the information needed to know what block device under /dev that your device is assigned to.

Cheers,

Josh

same.

If it helps. Googling finds the following: http://www.dankulp.com/ptpfs/

I guess this camera uses PTP style filesystem [but the card is a sdcard in fat32 format] ... want this to work so that if i do lose my sdcard reader (like I did this time) i can access it no matter what...

I am unfamiliar with the ptpfs but it looks like it is only for 2.4 kernels. PTP cameras can not be mounted like USB mass storage devices. However, there are both CLI and GUI apps. Have a look at gphoto. BTW PTP is a communication protocol and not a filesystem.

gtkam should work with that camera and it is very easy to use. (it works with most camera protocols)

*edit*
oops, sorry. I see that you want a command line option.
try gphoto2 instead. gtkam is the gui frontend.
