Re: camera won't automount [Solved]

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]


  No one responded on this query, but, for the sake of posterity, here's 
the fix:
Many modern digital cameras have two modes in which the flash memory 
operates, USB and PTP; I do not know what PTP means, but the effect of 
it is, it doesn't allow the memory to be seen as ordinary flash memory. 
Digikam can recognize a connected device operating in PTP mode and 
that's why it worked there. In Windows-land, PTP mode, as I understand 
it, is designed to work with Nikon's own software for managing photos. I 
do not know if other manufacturers use this protocol, or whether it's 
unique to Nikon. On some Nikon cameras, there are options in the menu to 
run the memory in USB or PTP mode, but, the D90 does not offer this 
choice, and can only run in PTP. The fix is to either use Digikam or 
other software that can work with PTP mode enabled memory, or, remove 
the memory from the camera and use a card reader.
