Sony Camera not recognized

Hello ,


i would like to transfer the pictures from Camera Sony W830 to the laptop.

However, the PTP/MTP is not being recognized by Devuan 3.0 Beowulf and the Camera would not show up as an external storage (it should show from 30 to 32GB)



What am i doing wrong?

Re: Sony Camera not recognized

i have upgraded the system on the laptop from Ascii to Beowulf, but that should not make a difference in recognizing the Camera;

the update process proceeded without any errors,


Thank you very much.

Re: Sony Camera not recognized

Perhaps jmtpfs works for you.

Re: Sony Camera not recognized

Perhaps it needs exfat-fuse (and maybe exfat-utils) whcih I don't think are installed by default.

Re: Sony Camera not recognized

Isn't that camera an USB device? I would suggest first of all to check on the console if and how the camera re. its memory stick? shows up when plugged in. lsusb

Have you tried all available USB ports on the laptop?

Re: Sony Camera not recognized

yes, both devices are usb-connected, and have proprietary cables (from what i understand > typically sony)
maybe i am doing something wrong wh, but i think the camera is instantly recognized on ubuntu with the same procedure.

the walkman has only internal flash installed (but can handle also additional micro-SD-card up to 2TB or maybe even more)
the camera has a 32gb old sd-card (the bigger ones) and probably no flash memory.

exfat-fuse and exfat-utils

seem already manually installed (maybe leftover from ascii installation?)

laptop T400 has 3 usb ports, it does not make a difference if ports are switched, camera not shown in filemanager.

Re: Sony Camera not recognized

One topic per thread only please.

When I connect my Panasonic (don't own a Sony, never had) to the usb port I get a similar output. The memory isn't shown with lsusb.

Bus 002 Device 008: ID 04da:2372 Panasonic (Matsushita) Lumix Camera (Storage mode)

When I connect my camera I have to select a mode, either Pict Bridge (PTP) or PC. I only use the later. What about the Sony?

When the camera is connected with the correct mode selected, the SD memory card shows up in lsblk:

sdh                   8:112  1 119,1G  1 disk  
└─sdh1                8:113  1 119,1G  1 part  /media/rolf/3663-6361

and is available on my Mate desktop as 128GB device. Caja shows "MATSHITA DC-TZ91: Datenträger 128 GB". I can copy images from the card to my home drive then as desired.

What is happening on your laptop? Is the memory shown in lsblk?

rolfie

Edith: just tried the PTP mode for curiosity. Hey it also works in my configuration, same drive is present in lsblk and on the Caja screen, just named slightly different.

Re: Sony Camera not recognized

sorry, but the camera shows only "USB-Mode   PTP/MTP"
                                                      "Speicherkarte - Wiederg. per "Wiedergabe" - Tastendruck" eg. "Memorycard - Playback via "Play" - Buttonpress"

if playbutton is pressed, the only think happens is that the internal display on the camera is being changed from the above message/statusscreen to the active fotomanager on the camera, eg. the photos are being displayed on-cam.

lsblk is giving the following output

lsblk
NAME   MAJ:MIN RM   SIZE RO TYPE MOUNTPOINT
sda      8:0    0 111.8G  0 disk
├─sda1   8:1    0 108.9G  0 part /
├─sda2   8:2    0     1K  0 part
└─sda5   8:5    0   2.9G  0 part [SWAP]
sr0     11:0    1  1024M  0 rom

will check the next days on ubuntu after iget my cmputer back to see if it behaves there differently, but i believe so.

Re: Sony Camera not recognized

That device, 054c:094b, does not appear to yet be listed among known devices, but it might work by identifying it explicitly for jmtpfs, i.e. if your mount point is /media/camera you'd use:

jmptfs -d 001,003 /media/camera

Re: Sony Camera not recognized

ok ... seems to lead out of my comfort zone. The product id (0x094b) is not listed in http://www.linux-usb.org/usb.ids, and afaict it's also not among the entries for libmtp (http://libmtp.sourceforge.net/).

So it appears that making it work is slightly more than plug-n-play. I'm not aware of any possible shortcut, but maybe someone else knows better.

I downloaded the manual from Sony:
https://www.sony.com/electronics/suppor … 14571M.pdf

I can read on page 27 that the camera has around 27 MB of internal memory.

Could work for you just read the files from the sd-card? (As a workaround).

Re: Sony Camera not recognized

When I summarize the feedback received on lsusb and lsblk, the camera is found on the usb subsystem, but the product id seems to be unknown. Contrary to my Panasonic which is working fine there is no sign of any memory. Looks like its not recognised at all. Strange for a product that is more that 6 years on the market. On the other hand I am not familiar with Sony products, I avoid them whereever I can.

@OP: when I read what you wrote in your first posts it is very interpretable if the camera worked under ASCII. I would assume when it worked under ASCII it also should under Beowulf. Buuuuut: we have the proof that there is no memory recognised. Very strange.

So  please give Magnus' suggestion a try. Maybe a dedicated udev rule fixes the issue (have you optimised something?).

It seems that older hardware can be removed when "upgrades" occur. I came across this when a scanner I have stopped working. Then I had to write my own udev rule.

### /etc/udev/rules.d/60-canon-lide-25.rules
# Canon CanoScan LiDE25
ATTRS{idVendor}=="04a9", ATTRS{idProduct}=="2220", ENV{libsane_matched}="yes"

Re: Sony Camera not recognized

i just checked on my older T60 running debian wheezy, and there the camera is perfectly recognized.
