Re: Driver for JVC Digital Still Camera

one more thing, I am using the usb port. I am having a bit of a problem, that is identifying which device to mount. Any help is appreciated. Thanks.

Michael -

Check here

http://www.linux-usb.org/

more specifically, this page:

http://www.linux-usb.org/usb.ids

Look for "Victor Company of Japan (JVC)"

I dunno how much this helps....
Look me up on the Ars forums (Neptunes)- http://arstechnica.com and http://arstechnica.infopop.net

Re: Driver for JVC Digital Still Camera

That din't help. If any one got their JVC digital/Camera to work under Linux on USB port let me know. I would like to get it working also. Thanks.

Re: Driver for JVC Digital Still Camera

This is how mine works:

Plug in the camera..

Turn it on..

Do a more on /var/log/messages and go to the bottom. There should be a message about "found device /dev/sdf0 or whatever.

Then you can

mkdir /mnt/camera
mount -t msdos /dev/sdf0 /mnt/camera

You may have to have the scsi drivers compiled (built in, or as a module) to get this to work since it sees the camera as a scsi device.

Re: Driver for JVC Digital Still Camera

Here's what I got when doing dmesg to see if it recognize my JVC digital camera:
usb.c: USB device 2 (vend/prod 0x4f1/0x4) is not claimed by any active driver.
Initializing USB Mass Storage driver...
usb.c: registered new driver usb-storage
scsi1 : SCSI emulation for USB Mass Storage devices
Vendor: JVC Model: DV CAMERA Rev: 0000

USB Mass Storage device found at 2
USB Mass Storage support registered.
parport0: PC-style at 0x378 (0x778) [PCSPP,TRISTATE]

Any idea if the driver is loaded? If so, what device name should I use to mount it? Thanks.
