Hmmm.... The system is seeing the camera when you plug it in correct?

Should be no need. Hotplug with submount should take care of that.
If the camera is seen by the system by hotplug and submount in turn
sees the device as a USB drive and "mounts" it for use. So somewhere
it seems that either hotplug or submount is not seeing the camera.

I believe that Dylan asked you to check to see if your camera is
recognized by the USB on the machine. I will watch that thread and
we will go from there.
