I am getting some errors whilst atttempting to use gphoto2 with my Canon IXUS 400 digital camera. I have taken the liberty to upload these errors to my website.There are over 200 lines of output but the main lines of concern are from193 onwards, so you you can jump stright to the bottom of the page if you want to.

The camera seems to be detected but the box can't seem to open my usb port. Any suggestions or comments would be more than appreciated.

Try just mounting it as root and not using gphoto2. You can then just use nautilus or the command line to grab the files.

mkdir /mnt/usb
mount /dev/sda1 /mnt/usb

I think kazim had a post about mounting usb devices recently.

Managed to get complete access to the camera. Used a compact flash reader. Followed instuctions from this url http://home.gagme.com/greg/linux/usbcamera.php.

It appears that the Canon Ixus 400 is not a "real" usb mass storage device, as I got some funny message fom /var/log/message....

Once agian, thanks! Followed your command line instructions to copy files from the card reader to my home directory. :D
