Thanks Marshall, yes, as I was saying, the machine sees the camera and makes
it go like:

But the point is that directory is not accessible. You can cd into it, but you
cant get an ls (No media found). In some instances Konq opens a window, but
it locks up and doesn't display any contents.

So submount (if the culprit) is failing to mount it.

I'm about to post a transcript of the gory USB logs, in case some USB guru can
help ...

Thanks again
