Digikam problem in 2006

Has anyone else observed that the new Digikam has trouble downloading pics in PTP mode in MDK2006? I love the program, so much so that I went back to 2005le because I cannot get Digikam working. It detects my camera, even knows the brand name and model. However, it simply cannot download pics. I have tried different configuration dice.

Any ideas? I want to get 2006 on my machine but it is the little bugs like this that make me afraid, I just got 2005 tweaked how I like it.

I had a similar problem and just configured my camera manually as a USB Mass Storage device and it worked fine.

Yeah, I figured that would work...but I dislike having to work around like that in the latest greatest MDK. I don't particularly like using a camera as a USB storage device, I like PTP and I am of the mind that a newere release should work better than the old, not worse.

Thanks though. I'll stick with 2005le.
