    Kodak easyshare CX7300 digital camera


    I have a Kodak easyshare CX7300 digital camera and I'm trying to connect it to my PC. I'm running on Redhat Linux 9. When I go to control centre under information; usb devices, the camera picks up, but I'm unable to access the images under peripherals. There it detect a "USB PTP class camera". If i want to test or configure the camera there it give me a msg "Unable to initialize camera. Check your port settings and camera connectivity and try agian"
    I tried to search on google but could not find anything relevant.Can you please help me to get this working.

    Thank you in advance for the help.

    Lets try mounting the drive(camera);

    Before you plug in your USB cable, do the following;
    Code:
    su
    tail -f /var/log/messages
    Now plug in the USB cable, you should get something like this;
    Code:
    Jun 18 15:23:29 kernel: hub.c: USB new device connect on bus1/1, assigned device number 2
    Jun 18 15:23:30 kernel: scsi1 : SCSI emulation for USB Mass Storage devices
    Jun 18 15:23:30 kernel: Vendor: NIKON Model: NIKON DSC E995 Rev: 1.00
    Jun 18 15:23:30 kernel: Type: Direct-Access ANSI SCSI revision: 02
    Jun 18 15:23:30 kernel: Attached scsi removable disk sda at scsi1, channel 0, id 0, lun 0
    Jun 18 15:23:30 kernel: SCSI device sda: 500736 512-byte hdwr sectors (256 MB)
    Jun 18 15:23:30 kernel: sda: Write Protect is off
    Jun 18 15&#58;23&#58;30 kernel&#58; sda&#58;<7>usb-storage&#58; queuecommand&#40;&#41; called
    The important line in this is something that looks like:
    Code:
    Jun 18 15&#58;23&#58;30 kernel&#58; SCSI device sda&#58; 500736 512-byte hdwr sectors &#40;256 MB&#41;
    This tells you that you have - in this case - a sda drive.
    To mount lets call it sda1 as do the following;
    Code:
    cd /mnt/
    su
    mkdir camera
    mount /dev/sda1 /mnt/camera
    That should mount the drive, to look at the drive type:
    Code:
    ls camera
    Then add this to the fstab:
    Code:
    /dev/sda1 /mnt/camera vfat noauto,users,ro,umask=0 0 0

    [edit] Ahh, I see you've tried to mount it by now, I don't know what's wrong [/edit]

    Been looking around on the web, and other people who have had the problem with 'ot a valid block device' error with cameras, have found that there camera's hde, and not sda to the computer;
    So look around and see if it's a hd on your computer;
