Perhaps this will help, I had a simular issue with a Mustec camera it
worked for me after I let mandrake find it on boot up and auto detect it
and a usb fob.
It can now be seen and even presents itself on the desktop .
The same issue with a USB key
So if you attach the full camera (do not take out the card when the
camera is attached to the computer :-))
It complained the first time it detected the usb mounted fob but now I
can use it no problem.
