USB Digital Camera Problem


Hello,

I want to mount my digital camera (Minolta Dimage F200) via USB. I had it working under SuSE 7.3 and mouted it as SCSII devide /dev/sda1 as vfat file system.

I tried the same under Redhat 9.0 without success. When I attach my camera to the usb port I don't find any message in /var/log/messages. I assume that the usb hotplug mechanism is not working. Do I need to load special modules for that or change some configuration files? I'm not an administration guru and I just installed Redhat 9.0 with the standard settings.

Cheers,

Can you access it with gtkam. Start gtkam, then plug the camera in, then see if it is detected.

It will probably mount like most usb devices.

If gtkam doesnt work try:
cdrecord --scanbus

This seems to return my jump drive and I would image it would return the camera. If that comes back positive try:
fdisk -l /dev/sda

Keep stepping up the a till you find it. My jump drive is /dev/sda but most everyone elses is /dev/sda1 Donno whats up with that.

Hello,

thanks for your answers so far but unfortunately I had no success.

gtkam doesn't work, it doesn't find any camera.

cdrecord --scanbus also doesn't find any other device except from my DVD writer which is a SCSII device:

Cdrecord 2.0 (i686-pc-linux-gnu) Copyright (C) 1995-2002 Jrg Schilling
Using libscg version 'schily-0.7'

In my kernel log I find these usb related entries:

usb.c: registered new driver usbdevfs
usb.c: registered new driver hub
usb.c: new USB bus registered, assigned bus number 1
ehci-hcd 00:10.3: USB 2.0 enabled, EHCI 1.00, driver 2003-Jan-22
hub.c: USB hub found
hub.c: 6 ports detected
usb.c: registered new driver hiddev
usb.c: registered new driver hid
hid-core.c: USB HID support drivers

and in /var/log/messages I find:

Nov 15 10:54:54 BerndsPC kernel: usb.c: registered new driver usbdevfs
Nov 15 10:54:54 BerndsPC autofs: automount startup succeeded

Nov 15 10:54:55 BerndsPC kernel: hid-core.c: USB HID support drivers

But as I mentioned earlier, no messages are printed into /var/log/messages when I plug-in my camera.

/sbin/lsmod prints these modules related to usb and scsi:

ide-scsi 11984 0
scsi_mod 106520 4 (autoclean) [sg sr_mod ide-scsi sd_mod]
usbcore 78272 1 [hid ehci-hcd]

I think the problem could be that further usb modules are missing but which?

Any further ideas?

Thanks,

Bernd

I don't know what to suggest. Without seeing anything in /var/log/message when ANY USB device is plugged in, it simply isn't going to be detected. I can't imagine that the stock kernel didn't come fully configured/built. You didn't recompile the kernel or anything? Maybe disable PnP in the BIOS? Wish I could help further. I think you need to go to/get on the Redhat 9.0 mailing list.

Hi,
I used the Digital Camera Tool in the Graphics menu to set up my Sony DSC P72 and selsected the camera "USB PTP class camera", plugged it into the USB port, turned it on and the photos downloaded in a flash. You have to set up a folder to send them to but that is common sense to do.
I then set up the GIMP to edit them and also found I could print them from "home" to my default printer.
