[gentoo-user] USB mass storage help

2005-04-05 Thread David D. Rea
Hi All-

I'm trying to get my new Canon 20D to talk to my Gentoo box, but so far
no luck getting the mass storage device driver to see it:

1) `dmesg` reports the following when plugging in camera:

usb 1-5: new high speed USB device using ehci_hcd and address 63

Normally the usb-storage driver loads immediately after, but not for
this camera. The camera is in Normal communication mode, as opposed to
the PTP setting!

2) A quick `lsmod` indicates that usb-storage is indeed not loaded.

3) Attempting to modprobe usb-storage results in the following error on
dmesg:

kobject_register failed for usb_storage (-17)
 [c01f951b] kobject_register+0x5b/0x60
 [c012c725] mod_sysfs_setup+0x75/0xe0
 [c012d80d] load_module+0x79d/0xa40
 [c012db1a] sys_init_module+0x6a/0x1b0
 [c01030df] syscall_call+0x7/0xb

4) /proc/bus/usb/devices lists the following:

T:  Bus=01 Lev=01 Prnt=01 Port=04 Cnt=01 Dev#= 63 Spd=480 MxCh= 0
D:  Ver= 2.00 Cls=ff(vend.) Sub=ff Prot=ff MxPS=64 #Cfgs=  1
P:  Vendor=04a9 ProdID=30eb Rev= 0.01
S:  Manufacturer=Canon Inc.
S:  Product=Canon Digital Camera
C:* #Ifs= 1 Cfg#= 1 Atr=c0 MxPwr=100mA
I:  If#= 0 Alt= 0 #EPs= 3 Cls=ff(vend.) Sub=ff Prot=ff Driver=(none)
E:  Ad=81(I) Atr=02(Bulk) MxPS= 512 Ivl=0ms
E:  Ad=02(O) Atr=02(Bulk) MxPS= 512 Ivl=0ms
E:  Ad=83(I) Atr=03(Int.) MxPS=  64 Ivl=64ms

This behavior is the same regardless of which port I use, or if a USB
hub is used. I know usb-storage is working on this machine in general,
since it works fine with a USB CF card reader. Unfortunately that reader
ate a CF card last time I used it, so I'd much prefer to go directly
from the (much more reliable) camera.

Switching to PTP mode and using gphoto or similar software is not an
option...I use my own scripts to mount the mass storage device and pull
the photos into my workflow, so I need mass storage support.

Any ideas?

Thanks in advance,
Dave

The Canon 300D and A75 don't present themselves as mass storage devices,
so I doubt the 20D does either. You can access it with gphoto, or by using
camera:/ in Konqueror, but not as a block device.

Personally, I prefer to use a card reader. A USB 2.0 reader is MUCH faster
than the camera (even my old 1.1 reader was faster than the camera) and
doesn't drain the camera's battery.

OK, sorry for the list noise - you confirmed a suspicion that I had
after subsequently trying the camera on my windows box and getting
nowhere just as quickly.

I dug my reader out of the trash this morning as a last-resort, and I'll
see if I can snag something a little more reliable from work. I prefer
using the reader as well, as it's faster and more convenient.

Just needed something for the short term, until I can get a CF card
reader that doesn't have a history of hosing CF cards!

Thanks
Dave

Use gphoto, Digikam (my preference) or Konqueror.

The Canon 20D is not supported by the present stable version of
Gphoto2 2.1.4.  It is supported by the gphoto2 2.1.5 but it isn't
marked as stable yet in portage for ~x86.   Does anybody know what the
problem is that it isn't marked stable yet?

I've had no problems with 2.1.5. ~arch only means that the ebuild is still
in testing, it has nothing to do with the stability of the software.
