Mounting a digital camera?
I have edited my /etc/fstab to include my digital camera:

/dev/sdb1 /mnt/camera vfat noauto, user, ro 0 0

Now with the above I keep getting an error message saying mount point does not exist. However if I enter this:

mount /dev/sdb1 /mnt

The camera mounts no problem and all is well.

Also the camera seem to swap between sda1 and sdb1 for no apparent reason I could do with a way to 'fix' it to one call out device. My USB floppy seem to allways get 'attached' to sda so what is going on here is strange.

Just go to /mnt and, as root,

mkdir camera
to fix the first problem.
As for the other I don't have a clue. Sorry. :(

The scsi addresses are dynamically assigned to usb mass storage devices. What you could do is write a hotplug script which mounts the camera or updates /etc/fstab when the camera is plugged in. This is quite easy if you are familiar with basic shell scripting, check out for documentation.

Of course I never did mkdir camera!

I'll have to look into the scripting to change /etc/fstab I think.

Cheers. :)
