My camera doesn't show up as a block device when you plug the
USB link into the computer. You can get the pictures via the PTP
interface but I don't really like doing that as it messes
with the EXIF tags. So I just pull the card and put it in
a card reader, and then I can mount it normally.
I hadn't heard that some readers don't let you have access to
all 4G of a 4G SDHC card. I have one of those cards and haven't
had any problems, but then I've never had so much as a single
gig of photos on it at any one time. Maybe I should check that out....
