Re: USB storage (memstick) trouble
Check /var/log/messages and /var/log/syslog as the device is plugged into,
and removed from, the USB port. That sometimes provides clues as to what
the drivers are doing.
Also check /proc/bus/usb for information on what's being seen.
I've never used a digital camera so don't have anything more specific than
that to say.
You are using kernel 2.4.x, right? usb-storage was lousy in 2.2.x.
