    Sony DSC-W5....help!!!!


    Okay......even though this is my first post here, I am not that much of a n00b. LOL! But I am about to pull out what little hair that I have left.

    I have a Slackware 10.1 install that I am completely happy with.....except one thing: I can't figure out where my blasted USB connection from my camera mounts at!!! I know Slackware sees it:

    Code:
    wayne@localhost:/sbin$ lsusb
    Bus 001 Device 001: ID 0000:0000
    Bus 001 Device 011: ID 054c:0010 Sony Corp. DSC-S30/S70/S75/F505V/F505/FD92 Cybershot/Mavica Digital Camera
    wayne@localhost:/sbin$
    From what I can tell, this device is recognized as a USB-storage device and I believe all of the appropriate modules are loaded:

    Code:
    wayne@localhost:/sbin$ lsmod | grep usb
    usb-storage            62336   0 (unused)
    usbcore                58860   1 [printer uhci usb-storage]
    The camera does not appear to be on any of the sd* devices. I can not find it under USB either.

    I have a /mnt/sony directory set up to mount it to, and I have tried:

    Code:
    mnt -t auto /dev/sda1 /mnt/sony
    until I am blue in the face!!!!

    I know it's there........if only to find it.

    FYI.......I threw in a Knoppix CD and it was there on sda1! Go figure!???



    Thanks for any help.

    What does your fstab look like?

    Code:
    wayne@localhost:~$ cat /etc/fstab
    /dev/hda9        swap             swap        defaults         0   0
    /dev/hda6        /                ext2        defaults         1   1
    /dev/hda7        /home            ext2        defaults         1   2
    /dev/hda8        /var             ext2        defaults         1   2
    /dev/cdrom       /mnt/cdrom       iso9660     noauto,owner,ro  0   0
    /dev/fd0         /mnt/floppy      auto        noauto,owner     0   0
    devpts           /dev/pts         devpts      gid=5,mode=620   0   0
    proc             /proc            proc        defaults         0   0

    I know it's not in fstab, but that should not prevent me from manually mounting it, should it??? I thought fstab was only used during boot-up? Maybe I am missing something..........


    Thanks.

    Hmm... what comes up if you plug in the device and run the dmesg command?

    Code:
    hub.c: new USB device 00:1f.2-1, assigned address 3
    usb.c: USB device 3 (vend/prod 0x54c/0x10) is not claimed by any active driver.
    These are the last two lines (only thing that seems relevant) when I plug in the camera and issue the 'dmesg' command.


    Thanks

    Hi, mccleway - that output looks a bit skimpy.

    I don't connect a digital camera to my box but do use USB flash drives (also USB printer and USB mouse), so I don't know how they compare configuration-wise but assume they are similar.

    My output for dmesg | grep usb looks like this:
    Code:
    [ozar@ozario ~]$ dmesg | grep usb

    I'm assuming you'll need scsi emulation as do I with my flash drive. My output for dmesg | grep scsi looks like this:
    Code:
    [ozar@ozario ~]$ dmesg | grep scsi
    scsi0 : SCSI emulation for USB Mass Storage devices
     /dev/scsi/host0/bus0/target0/lun0: p1
    Attached scsi removable disk sda at scsi0, channel 0, id 0, lun 0
    A couple other questions...

    Are you using the 2.4, or the 2.6 kernel?

    Is the file system on the device formated fat/vfat? If so, are you sure you have support enabled for it?

    Will it mount as root? If so, perhaps a permissions issue?

    Let us know...

    Okay.........let's see if I can provide more info.

    I am currently using kernel 2.4.29, but I did compile and load 2.6.11 today. I haven't had the chance to play with the camera on 2.6 yet because I'm still fighting some weird Xserver issuse with it.

    No, it will not mount even as 'root'.

    I believe that it is formatted in a fat/vfat format, but where do I enable support for it????

    Also, I believe Ozar hit on something with the SCSI emulation for Mass Storage devices. This is what I get:

    Code:
    root@localhost:/# dmesg | grep -i SCSI
    SCSI subsystem driver Revision: 1.00
    kmod: failed to exec /sbin/modprobe -s -k scsi_hostadapter, errno = 2
    kmod: failed to exec /sbin/modprobe -s -k scsi_hostadapter, errno = 2
    kmod: failed to exec /sbin/modprobe -s -k scsi_hostadapter, errno = 2
    scsi0 : SCSI host adapter emulation for IDE ATAPI devices
    I looked back through xconfig and I'll be darned if I saw anything about SCSI Mass Storage support???


    Also, here is my complete USB dmesg list:

    Code:
    root@localhost:/# dmesg | grep -i USB
    usb.c: registered new driver usbdevfs
    usb.c: registered new driver hub
    Initializing USB Mass Storage driver...
    usb.c: registered new driver usb-storage
    USB Mass Storage support registered.
    uhci.c: USB Universal Host Controller Interface driver v1.1
    uhci.c: USB UHCI at I/O 0x1080, IRQ 11
    usb.c: new USB bus registered, assigned bus number 1
    hub.c: USB hub found
    hub.c: new USB device 00:1f.2-2, assigned address 2
    usb.c: USB device 2 (vend/prod 0x3f0/0x4b11) is not claimed by any active driver.
    usb.c: registered new driver usblp
    printer.c: usblp0: USB Bidirectional printer dev 2 if 1 alt 0 proto 2 vid 0x03F0 pid 0x4B11
    printer.c: v0.13: USB Printer Device Class driver
    hub.c: new USB device 00:1f.2-1, assigned address 3
    usb.c: USB device 3 (vend/prod 0x54c/0x10) is not claimed by any active driver.
    Thanks for any help guys. I'm anxious to try it on the 2.6 kernel as I have read that hardware support is better. Or is someone pulling my leg??? LOL!

    hey, mccleway - here's a linux / digital camera howto I just ran across. Perhaps there's something in it that might help get you up and running:

    try mount -t auto /dev/sda /mnt/sony
    if that didn't work, that means your camera doesn't support mass storage
    for sony it support something called PTP, search your camera's manual for this word "PTP" and then you can use "gphoto2" or its kde interface "digikam" or its gnome interface "gtkam" for downloading the images

    sometimes the interface doesn't work well, try first the command line "gphoto" while u r root

    I have a Sony DSC W1.

    Didn't work under linux 2.4 without patch (I think I had the same messages). But works fine with Linux 2.6.

    The patch was a small fix to the devices tab of the kernel's USB code. Don't find it now, but I can have another look if needed.
