Summary: can't connect to camera Kodak Z730 using media://camera,
usb storage device or auto-recognized z730 device
Platform: SuSE RPMs
AssignedTo: digikam-devel kde org
ReportedBy: doug wildhair org
Version: 0.9.2 (using KDE KDE 3.5.7)
Installed from: SuSE RPMs
Prior to 0.9.2 version using Suse 10.2 the camera had no issues connecting. After moving to the 9.2 version about a week ago when it was released in Yast it ceased to connect with the error "Failed to connect to the camera. Please make sure it is connected properly and turned on. Would you like to try again?" Selecting Retry does not work. Deleting the camera and adding it again via auto-detect gives the same error. Renamed configuration files and app directory under ./kde and still have same behavior after restarting and using the auto-detect which sees the camera. I can connect to it as media:/camera through the "My Computer" object and browse through the directories without any issues. I can copy the images from the device to the associated directories under my normal Digicam folders without any issues. I can also browse to both the internal and external storage. After transferring the files I reformatted the drives using the cameras format internally and they are still not recognized.
I have tried to modify the camera object in Digicam to be a simple usb storage device without any luck.
I am using the 0.9.2-final revision on KDE 3.5.7 using kernel 188.8.131.52-0.3-default from Suse on a AMD Opteron with the x64 kernel.
Any ideas on what to try or what other information I can provide?
Obviously I would like to get back to where it recognizes the camera and utilizes the digicam menus for downloading the files, etc.
