    Digital Camera


    I've got a digital camera that plugs in using a usb port. Then it's just a removable disk. Problem is that there's no block device for the four usb ports. Two on the front and the same on the back. How do I make a block device or something along the lines of getting the block devices to show up under /dev

    try to look in /dev/scsi
    you should see some dir with the name: host1 (the digit may be different)
    (if you got the tree command type the following, else I recomend emerging it 'emerge tree')
    Code:
    tree /dev/scsi
    you should see an output similar to:
    this:
    Code:
    /dev/scsi/
    `-- host2
        `-- bus0
            `-- target0
                `-- lun0
                    |-- disc
                    `-- part1
    where the path "/dev/scisi/host2/bus0/target0/lun0/part1" is the mountable device for the camers storage.

    you might have run do 'modprobe usb-storage' (as root) first.

    Code:
    bash-2.05b# tree /dev/scsi/
    /dev/scsi/
    
    0 directories, 0 files
    [/code]

    ok, did you run "modprobe usb-storage" before typing tree?
