Nice camera by the way. This camera uses Compact Flash which is
essentially an IDE hard disk. So all you need to read/write it is
a cheap (€10) passive adapter for the PCMCIA slot of your laptop.
Then you just do: mount /dev/hde /mnt/flash

Why didn't you source one that is known to work on Linux?
Anyway this may conform to the USB storage spec and hence
is supported by Linux by just adding the device ID manually
to the driver?
