Unhappy digital camera blues......

I have a dsc-p30 digital camera using w/
mandrake 8.1.... I edit my /etc/fstab to show..
/dev/sda1 /mnt/camera vfat noauto,user 0 0.

cat proc/bus/usb/devices..which showed a usb connection between the camera and the laptop.
mkdir /mnt/camera
then when I do a mount /dev/sda1 /mnt/camera....I got this....Mount: special device /dev/sda1 does not exist.When I first did this ihad no problems with it....then the next day I kept getting this bash error...Does anybody have any idea what I did wrong

tru - just a shot in the dark...

Does that setup require ide-scsi or just scsi? My guess would be that you may need some scsi modules to be up.

This worked beautifully for me, in 8.1:

go to
search for 'jphoto'
download the 96kb RPM
go to root
install RPM
open the terminal
type 'jphoto images'
it should dump all camera contents into an 'images' directory

it's not pretty but it's lightning fast!
I have a DSC-S85, with 128Mb memory stick. It dumps a full card in less than 2 minutes.

Just out of curiosity, do you have any other USB devices installed? I'm wondering if the camera is no longer at sda1.
