I have a sony camera, that by default doesnt work, basicly there is a option on the camera to set PTP (i think) in the setting on the camera, change it to that and it should work!

Have you tried connecting the camera?

With my Samsung digital camera, I just plug it into Ubuntu and it just works! I can either use Nautilus to retrieve the photos or F-Spot.
Have you tried already and got error messages?

I have tried everything i have been told. i'm not sure whether i have done it in the right order or not i am quite new to all this. but i copied and pasted the commands in terminal and nothing is happening. im probably not doing it right. however i have now tried gthumb and am getting this error message.
An error occurred in the io-library ('Bad parameters') :
Could not find USB device (vendor 0x54c product 0x4e) Make sure this device is connected to computer.

ok, open a terminal (Applications - Accessories - Terminal)

first, connect the camera

type in
mount
then disconnect the camera, wait 1 minute and do the same command again.

then, still in the termianl, type in
lsmod | grep usb

highlight the information in the terminal, right click on it and select copy. then come back here and paste that information into a message so we can see if the camera is being seen.

Try them and see what you like. There will be advantages and disadvantages to all of them.

looking at the mount info, there is no change with the camera plugged in or with it not plugged in. I'm thinking there is something wrong with either the cable or the camera or the port. Does it work on another computer with the same cable?
