I have also used the following to mount my sony camera as a usb device,
mount /dev/sda1 /mnt/cam
however when I mount my sony usb drive(its a 128mb usb drive with a slot
to put a sony memory stick - the ones the camera uses) I have to use
mount /dev/sda /mnt/usb1
to get to the actual drive(128mb), and when I have a memory card in it I
mount /dev/sdb /mnt/usb2
to get to the memory stick(16mb/32mb/64mb),
but I'm not sure why this is the case. Can someone explain this to me?
I guess I'm asking what is the difference between /dev/sda and
When I attempt to mount it using /dev/sda1 it asks for the filesystem
type, which i think is FAT, I dont know.
If I mount it as /dev/sda is just mounts without asking for a file
I'm a little confused by this.
