That's what I ended up doing --- and just did a straight copy to a
directory in my home.
One annoying thing that's going on...each time I connect the camera in
one logon session, the kernel bumps up the device..i.e.
sdb1/sdc1/sdd1/sde1 and so on. So I have to keep checking before
mounting. Can't this be automated ???
Linux in general seems to be behind the 8 ball when it comes to video
and graphics. My wife's XP has better tools. (But she crashes more often)
