The first time I connected with the cable, I was able to download the pictures
from the TMZ5 and then I asked to delete them. Everything appeared normal, it
asked whether I really wanted to delete them and I accepted 'yes'.
But after disconnecting the camera (not all the rapidly) I still found the
pics on the camera.
Ok, I reconnected the camera.... but had a very hard time getting DK to see
it again. I would select Import.... and USB storage devices and it would
show the TMZ5, but clicking on the TMZ5 would do nothing. But I finally got
it to show me the two pictures again after many attempts, and I selected to
delete them, and it *did* delete them.
I took more pictures, and went through the entire download, and delete
sequence again and it did delete them.
To make a long story short, this camera (or DK, or Kubuntu 9.04) has a hard
time connecting. But I did get it to connect, and went through the entire
sequence. So I don't think it is entirely the fault of the camera. I can't
tell where the fault lies.
I do know that connecting cameras to DK hasn't been a lot of fun since about
version .8 which is why I have switched to just using card RDR's. Add in
the fact that the TMZ5 uses a very non-standard cable, and that's another
reason not to use the cable.
