Between us newbies , no idea if its a DK bug or not.
If i were to guess i would say that the "Unmount " command ( mouse click 
)  closes the camera PTP interface and unmasks the camera interface for 
the USB mass storage format of the card. Reminds me of the image 
transfer selection option  between PTP and USB mass storage on some 
cameras "Setup"menu. My Nikon D3100 does not have this option as the 
user is supposed to use the Nikon transfer software that comes on a CD 
with the camera but is usable only for Windows and Apple computers.

Cheers JohnB
