Bug Description

Binary package hint: hal

The memory of my camera (Nikon Coolpix 2000) used to get automounted in Feisty, but doesn't in Gutsy anymore; nothing happens.

When I put the Flashcard of my camera in my cardreader, it is mounted and recognised as a picture carrier (bringing up the camera dialogue).
USB sticks are automounted too, even a strange one that has no partitions (actually, an mp3 player - even, the mp3 player pops up).
To be sure, that the fault isn't in the camera, I booted Feisty from the Live CD (7.04 from April 2007) and connected the camera: this was still working fine.

The relevant part of dmesg output (Gutsy) is here:

[15082.688000] usb 1-6: new full speed USB device using ohci_hcd and address 3

Attempts to mount the device manually fail also:
- sdf1 is reported not present
- sg5 is 'not a block device'

To compare, I've also included the corresponding dmesg output from Feisty:

<...>

The last line is a result of unmounting the device.

The mount command of Fiesty shows the following:

<...>

I have the same problem. My camera is a Nikon D40x. Had no problems in Feisty, but will not mount as a device in Gutsy. Other USB devices (printer, card reader) seem to mount without problem as does my external hard drive. However (and I include this only because it may have some bearing I cannot see) the system generates TWO icons on the desktop for ONE of my external hard drive partitions although it only shows up once in the "media" directory.
