Linux USB attach problem

Postby ierton » Fri Sep 19, 2014 8:27 am

Hi. I've got a problem accessing microSD card via USB on my Linux machine.
GoPro camera (Hero3 black) is recognized as cdc_acm device and not a mass storage device. What can I do with it? Is it possible to switch it to the mass storage mode?

you plug in the camera via USB and then power-on the camera, right?

what distro? what does dmesg say?

have you tried taking the card out of the camera, and using a USB or SD adapter? i do that, just because it's faster.

Hi. Looks like I found the source of the problem. Here is the description
gopro-usb-driver-t12449.html#p88047

In short, I used non-original USB cable. Computer detects cdc_acm device (a kind of USB-to-Serial converter, accessible via character device /dev/ACMttyX (dont remember exact name)) instead of mass storage device. This device may be opened via "minicom -D" command. dmesg says usual words about mounting serial device.
