    well if it plugs in with usb jhen it woupd be treated as a usb mass storage device like a usb thumb drive... ane to do this you need hotplugging support and scsi disk support and usb mass storage support in the kernel

    As much as i love linux, i have to say that so far i have choosen to stick with windoze for video editing (primarily b/c my old verison of avid is no good on a mac running 10.3, and im cheap and dont wanna pay the $1500 for an upgrade). I guess my question is are you looking to edit this video or simply capture? and are you connecting via firewire or usb?

    This isn't a perfect solution to your problem but this is the line in my friends' fstab for his digital camera:

    /sda1 /mnt/camera/ auto noauto,user,umask=000 0 0
    As for programs, just have a look at I can't recommend any because I don't need that sort of software, but I'm sure you'll find something you want.

    I hope this helps in some way.
