how to download videos from my Camera?


I have a Benq Digital Camera , it takes photo and movie.
I can download the photos with Digikam but when I try to download the movie it says "Failed..."
sometimes it says the same thing for photos too .

how I can download that movie on my digital camera? (it is a USB)

I changed the cable , and I am sure the cable is Fine.

I've never used Digikam, but you should be able to mount your camera and copy the files from it. That's how I access stuff on mine, anyway. When you plug the camera in, run dmesg and see what it says. It may say something like the following:

Attached scsi removable disk sda at scsi1, channel 0, id 0, lun 0
SCSI device sda: 499712 512-byte hdwr sectors (256 MB)
sda: Write Protect is off
sda: sda1

Actually, this output is from my USB pen drive, but the principle is the same. The bit in bold is the important part, as it tells you which device you need to mount. In this case, it is /dev/sda1. To mount it, you'd issue "mount /dev/sda1 /a/mount/point", without the quotes and replacing "/a/mount/point" with the directory you want to mount to, e.g. /mnt/camera (or whatever you choose). Note that that directory must exist before you try to mount to it (if it doesn't create it with "mkdir /mnt/camera"). In both cases, you will need root privilages and with Ubuntu, you use sudo for this, e.g.

$ sudo mount /dev/sda1 /mnt/camera

unless you've activated the root account.

You could try using "-t usbfs" in your mount line (or maybe check dmesg to see if it gives any details about the filesystem type). Also, are you sure you're trying to mount the right thing? Is /usb/media/spca5xx a symlink to /dev/<something>??
