    Sony Camera


    I have a sony DSCP50 digital camera which can be plugged into a USB port to get pictures off of, I cant seem to get the system to see the camera when its plugged in.

    Fedora 8

    Are there drivers or something that need installed for digital cameras to be seen???

    When you plugin the camera, can you enter the command
    Code:
    $dmesg
    There should be output about the camera and where the memory/memory card is mounted. Can you post this info here. Also, are you using GNOME or KDE?

    For some reason, I plugged the camera in this morning and it was immediately picked up and is working fine now. I plugged the camera in and a little window popped right up and told me there are pics on your camera and allowed me to copy them and everything. I love it!!! Windows Vista wont work with this camera but Fedora 8 will! When I go to my computer a mass storage device shows in there when the camera is plugged in, this is under GNOME.

    Anyway, thanks for the help, it working fine now!
