    The real question is what time is it and why the hell am I still screwing around with my computer?

    does your camera appear like a normal storage device in Windows, or do you have to communicate to it through some propiteary program?

    If it appears as a normal storage device, just mount it like you would mount any usb device.

    Check and see if you have gphoto2 and libgphoto2. They allow you to mount a digital camera and have a long list of supported cameras.

    check the list here to see if your camera is supported. It probably is, they support hundreds.

    Then there are some good frontends for this. If you use KDE, try digikam or kamera. kamera allows you to use konqueror to look at your camera by typing 'camera:/' in the location.

    let us know if this helps

    Everything USB I have works except my Webcam. But I don't think it works in windows either. USB Headset, iRiver iHP, iFP, pendrives,bluetooth.... the lot.

    See how your device mounts in windows and come back to us.
