Bug Description

Binary package hint: f-spot

When I plug-in my digital camera f-spot opens a pop-up through which I can select the device to browse. I can read:

- mass storage camera disk:/media/disk
- olympus c-2040z usb:
- olympus c-2040z usb:003,003

(the last entry seems related to a bug already reported)

The first selection mounts the camera memory card as a disk and browses the content of the camera (that is the photos).
The second selection only browse the content of the camera.

I think the pop-up should explain these different behaviours in a user-friendly description. The actual pop-up is cryptic for most users.

Tested with Hardy and f-spot
