    Mounting USB Mass Storage located on Digital Camera


    Dear Forum,
    I bought a Fuji Finepix 3800 digital camera. I was doing some research via google and I found out that you can mount most digital cameras using the USB Mass Storage protocol. However, I cannot seem to figure out which device to mount. I am running Red Hat 7.3 and I think that the computer can see the camera. When I hook up the camera to the computer with the USB cable and turn the camera on, a new directory called usb-storage-0 is created in /proc/scsi. Inside this directory is a text file named 1.
    the contents of the file are as follows:

    Host scsi1: usb-storage
    vendor: unknown
    Product: USB Mass Storage
    Serial Number: Y-406^^^^^021216XFPX0004032070
    Protocol: 8070i
    Transport: Control/Bulk/Interrupt
    GUID: 04cb011a161fb10004032070
    Attached: Yes

    Now how do I mount this? I tried sda0-7 to no avail. Can anyone help me out? Thanks for any help.

    I tried dmesg | more and this was the output:

    [root@localhost root]# dmesg
    ame# 215
    usb-uhci.c: interrupt, status 3, frame# 1131
    usb-uhci.c: interrupt, status 3, frame# 2047
    usb-uhci.c: interrupt, status 3, frame# 915
    usb-uhci.c: interrupt, status 3, frame# 1827
    usb-uhci.c: interrupt, status 3, frame# 695
    usb-uhci.c: interrupt, status 3, frame# 1611
    ...etc

    every line contained usb-uhci.c: interrupt, status 3,
    but the frames were different, there were 340 lines. I have a USB printer also on this computer (a HP DJ861C which works with linux). I can't tell heads nor tails what the output of this command is telling me. Thanks for the advice Kriss. If anyone could help me out, I'd really appreciate it

    Hve you tried just /dev/sda? I wouldn't think that the camera has a partition table.

    Still No Joy

    I tried mounting /dev/sda like this as root

    mount /dev/sda /mnt/camera

    but I get an invalid block device error

    My Phillips CD-RW is showing up as a scsi device under host scsi0

    I'm not very familar with the naming scheme for partions and drives with linux. I tried mounting /dev/sdb, /dev/sdc, etc but all with no luck. Does anyone have any other ideas...or is it not possible to mount my USB Mass Storage device under linux? Thanks to all that have given their time and patience

    I went through a little trouble, too, when trying to get my keyring USB memory working with my Linux laptop, but it turned out to be possible. Have you checked so that sd_mod is loaded?
