Upload from Kodak P850 to Digikam

Asked by DickTheHam

Digikam responds to the camera, gets the Model correct, then gives an error
mesage "failed to connect". Is this camera not supported? Mode tried is PTP.

Any help apreciated.

You may actually want to use a card reader for this camera if your computer supports high-speed USB 2.0 as the camera only supports 'full speed'.

USB 2.0 Full Speed tops out at 12 Mbit/sec, which is the same speed as the "old" USB 1.1 standard, which is a way to 'trick' you into thinking that it was better then USB 1.1

This will make a huge difference in download speed with a card reader.

What version of Ubuntu are you using?

Thanks very much. I will try the card reader (or perhaps a new computer! -- WIN 98 is really old!)
