Sony DSC-F505 as SCSI device on Linux USB

Sony DSC-F505 as SCSI device on Linux USB

Post by Klaus Schmidinge » Wed, 16 Feb 2000 04:00:00



I am trying to connect a Sony DSC-F505 camera to a Linux
PC via its USB connector, but somehow it doesn't work.

Can somebody tell from the data below whether I am doing
something wrong, or if this device just can't be used
with Linux USB (yet)?

Thanks for any ideas

Klaus

I am running SuSE Linux 6.3, kernel 2.2.13.

When I plug in the USB connector I get the following
in /var/log/messages:
