I'm trying to mount my camera but I get the following error:
Code:
mount -t vfat /dev/sg0 /mnt/camera/
mount: /dev/sg0 is not a block device

I think I compiled all the needed options into my kernel:
CONFIG_USB_STORAGE
CONFIG_CHR_DEV_SG

What could be the problem?

I'm going to go way out on a limb here and guess that sg0 isn't a block device. :D

Sorry, I couldn't resist... Anyway, /dev/sg* are generic scsi devices. USB-storage stuff (like your camera), should show up as a scsi disk device, /dev/sd*. Try mounting /dev/sda (or sda1) instead of sg0.

I dont't have /dev/sda*

When I hook my camera to my laptop than dmesg | tail looks like this:
Code:
...
usb 4-1: new full speed USB device using ohci_hcd and address 2
scsi0 : SCSI emulation for USB Mass Storage devices
usb-storage: device found at 2
usb-storage: waiting for device to settle before scanning
  Vendor: MEDION__  Model: DigitalCamera511  Rev: 1.00
  Type:   Direct-Access                      ANSI SCSI revision: 00
Attached scsi generic sg0 at scsi0, channel 0, id 0, lun 0,  type 0
usb-storage: device scan complete

Maybe I have to compile in SCSI disk support. Compiling kernel right now...
