Sony DSC-F77 and Linux
The documentation for this camer is poor because it is
currently available in Asia only.
It's a great camera and supports USB mass storage and PTP.
However, the usb-storage.o doesn't support the device right
out of the box because the id is not between the bcdDeviceMin
and bcdDeviceMax for the Sony DSC entry.
So modify /usr/src/linux-2.4.*/drivers/usb/storage/unusual_devs.h:
/* This entry is needed because the device reports Sub=ff */
UNUSUAL_DEV( 0x054c, 0x0010, 0x0000, 0xFFFF,
US_SC_SCSI, US_PR_CB, NULL,
US_FL_SINGLE_LUN | US_FL_START_STOP | US_FL_MODE_XLATE ),
You are changing the 3rd and 4th entries... to 0x0000 and 0xFFFF.
I don't know enough about USB to figure out what the device id actually
make sure to 'rmmod usb-storage' and 'modprobe usb-storage' the new one.
'mount /dev/sda1 /camera' and it should work just fine.
Of course PTP is an option but I don't have java installed... working on it!
jphoto seems like an old project that hasn't been touched since 2001... and
it doesn't seem to work but I tried for about 5 minutes.
gphoto2 seems ok, just pick any Sony PTP camera but it's not working either...
I have no time to play with it right now. :(
