I have an Epson Stylus Photo R300, with the USB mass-storage feature for picture cards; with the printer connected normally, any picture card inserted in the printer should be recognized by the kernel as a USB mass-storage and mount on the desktop. With the camera this always works, except my USB camera-cable broke, and unfortunately the camera has a proprietary connector, so no replacement is readily available, thus I want to access the XD-card thru the R300. On VL-5.8, the card is not auto-mounting, and I don't know how to get it mounted.
I checked to be sure the printer could be recognized by going to CUPS web-admin, add printer, and CUPS recognized it instantly and selected the preferred printer-driver, so the printer works, USB is OK. Users on other distros (according to a few google results) generally report success with this feature on this printer; could there be some system config needed to sort this out?
Thanks in advance for any assistance,
