Thread: camera as usb device

  1. #1

    Question camera as usb device

    hi all,

    since I decommissioned the last Windows station in my house last week,
    I am now trying to get pictures off a Sony Mavica mvc-cd 200.

    I found on a forum : "tread it like any other block device.

    So I'm trying to mount it like I would a usb key.

    In /var/log/messages I see:

    Nov 6 19:11:48 nevereasy kernel: [ 555.814082] usb 2-1: new full speed USB device using ohci_hcd and address 2
    Nov 6 19:11:48 nevereasy kernel: [ 556.006115] usb 2-1: New USB device found, idVendor=054c, idProduct=004e
    Nov 6 19:11:48 nevereasy kernel: [ 556.006125] usb 2-1: New USB device strings: Mfr=1, Product=2, SerialNumber=0
    Nov 6 19:11:48 nevereasy kernel: [ 556.006133] usb 2-1: Product: Sony
    Nov 6 19:11:48 nevereasy kernel: [ 556.006138] usb 2-1: Manufacturer: Sony PTP

    So my OpenSuse 11.3 box knows it's a Sony, so mounting it should be a soft egg,
    right?

    Only I don't know how to do it, because i'm not seeing the normal sda or hda i'm
    used to.

    Anyone can help me?

    grt, Johan

    It would help if we knew if you are using Gnome or KDE

    Can you see the device in /media

    hi,

    No, nothing in /media.

    this is what i have :

    # fdisk -l

    Disk /dev/sda: 80.0 GB, 80026361856 bytes
    255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 9729 cylinders
    Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes
    Sector size (logical/physical): 512 bytes / 512 bytes
    I/O size (minimum/optimal): 512 bytes / 512 bytes
    Disk identifier: 0x47aae535

    Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System
    /dev/sda1 1 132 1051648 82 Linux swap / Solaris
    Partition 1 does not end on cylinder boundary.
    /dev/sda2 * 132 4115 32001024 83 Linux
    /dev/sda3 4115 9730 45096960 83 Linux

    So just the normal partitioning I think, 1 swap, 1 /, 1 /home.

    What happens in F-Spot

    It's a kind of old camera, not that that should be a problem, except it is a Sony :-(

    Some folks end up using XP in Virtual Box with some devices

    hi,

    nothing in f-spot.

    but I made a change to the camera, now it's on "usb mode normal" instead "PTP"

    and now I have in /var/log/messages:

    Nov 6 20:43:42 nevereasy kernel: [ 6069.236178] sr1: scsi3-mmc drive: 8x/8x writer cd/rw xa/form2 cdda pop-up
    Nov 6 20:43:42 nevereasy kernel: [ 6069.236473] sr 7:0:0:0: Attached scsi CD-ROM sr1
    Nov 6 20:43:42 nevereasy kernel: [ 6069.236642] sr 7:0:0:0: Attached scsi generic sg2 type 5
    Nov 6 20:43:48 nevereasy kernel: [ 6076.188174] cdrom: This disc doesn't have any tracks I recognize!
    ^C

    so I tried again to mount it using sr1

    nevereasy:/media/sony # mount /dev/sr1 /media/sony
    mount: block device /dev/sr1 is write-protected, mounting read-only
    mount: you must specify the filesystem type

    any idea what filesystem type I should use?

    grt, Johan
