I am trying to access a Sony DSC-F505V Digital Camera via USB and
everything goes well until I try to mount the files system with:
mount /dev/sda -t msdos /mnt/camera
I get:
mount: fs type msdos not supported by kernel

If I try:
mount /dev/sda - t auto /mnt/camera
I get:
mount: /dev/sda has wrong major or minor number

I get the same results with /dev/sda1
and ls -la /dev/sda gives:
brw-rw---- 1 root disk 8, 0 May 6 1998 /dev/sda

I have CONFIG_SCSI = m
and all SCSI support types = m

cat /scsi/scsi gives:
Host: scsi0 Channel: 00 Id: 00 Lun: 00
   Vendor: Sony Model: Sony DSC Rev: 2.10
   Type: Direct-Access ANSI SCSI revision: 02

Can anyone help me, please?
