How do I setup my digital camera in Mandrake 9.1? When I go to the hardware list in the Mandrake Control Center, it shows up, but only as an unknown device. It says the name of the camera, but everything else is unknown. I can''t get anything to detect it! It appears to act like a FAT removable disc in Windows, btw.

Two things:

One, you could try mounting it with -t fat and see what happens.

Two, perhaps your kernel needs to be recompiled to allow for hardware devices to act as mounted drives.

I don''t know what else you can do offhand. What camera is it? Perhaps a Google search might find someone else who was able to get it to work on their system.

You need to use the USB mass storage driver. I don''t remember the details, but a quick search for "usb mass storage" linux "digital camera" should do it.

Try:

modprobe usbcore
modprobe usb-uhci
modprobe usb-storage
mount -t auto /dev/sda1 /mnt/cam

(Change /mnt/cam to the directory you want to mount to)

Hope this works for you!

Its says "special device /dev/sda1 does not exist" when I try to mount the camera. I''ve also tried sda0 and sda. Nothing like that exists.
