I have a Genius G-Shot P7545 camera. In Windows I had just to plug in the camera to the usb and acces it like a usb stick. I tried to do that in Ubuntu 10.10 with no result. How can I acces the photots?
With these comands I get:

There is no reason why it shouldn't work, but there have been reports of the device not working from other people. The problem is that no one believes that this single mass storage device just stopped working... it's unbelievable because it's such a standard device.

Does the camera work when you boot up into a LiveCD session? Does it work with an older version of Ubuntu (such as 9.10 / 10/04) It's probably an issue with a new udev rule and I suspect (but have not proven) it's an issue with the modem rule that deals with usb modems that also have disks with windows drivers.

You may end up reporting the bug ubuntu-bug ubuntu and trying to get a developer to look into fixing it... if you can convince them.
