           Summary: DX7590 picture download fails
           Product: digikam
           Version: 0.7.4
          Platform: unspecified
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: normal
          Priority: NOR
         Component: general
        AssignedTo: digikam-devel kde org
        ReportedBy: eddie.dsouza gmail com

Version:           0.7.4 (using KDE 3.4.2 Level "b" , SUSE 10.0)
Compiler:          Target: i586-suse-linux
OS:                Linux (i686) release 2.6.13-15-smp

Using the camera dock with the Kodak DX7590.
I've chosen (KDE config) to open digital camera devices with digikam. It opens fine when I hit the 'Transfer' button on the camera dock.
Digikam loads fine, and when I select the camera on the camera menu, opens the Download dialog.
Thumbnails are displayed fine in this dialog.
However, when I click one of the JPGs, or select and try to download, digikam gives me a "Failed to download <nnn>.JPG" error messagebox. The camera LED continues flashing. Repeatedly clicking 'Try Again' on the error messagebox does not help. Closing digikam and reopening does not help. I need to lift the camera off the dock, breaking the USB connection, and re-start the transfer by pressing the dock's Transfer button again. Despite multiple tries, though thumbnails are displayed fine, at no point have I succeeded in actually downloading a picture to my hard disk.

Additional info:
- gtkam fails to run, citing a missing .so file, and I don't know where to get that one from.
- Have not tried command-line gphoto tools since I would prefer to preview, transfer selected photos, and delete rest from camera's SD card.
- Thought this problem might be a timeout since I had an almost-full 512MB SDMMC card on the cam; so I removed the card, took a couple of snaps which went to the cam's internal 16MB memory, and the above observations are with only 3 snaps ( 5 1MP, Standard compression, if that's relevant) on the cam's internal storage.
- Also thought that maybe the camera dock was causing a problem, so connected the camera directly at the other end of the USB cable. No joy.
