HP PhotoSmart E337

Hello,

I am thinking of buying an HP Photosmart E337 from a friend of mine, and
I have it hooked up to my computer with a USB cable that comes with it.

I can get the camera to say it is connecting on it's screen, and the pop
up from Ubuntu recognizes a camera is attached, and asks if I want to
import the pictures.

However, when I clcik OK it shows me two slightly different selections
of camera to import from, and both of them fail to connect with an
"unspecified error" error message.

Is there anything I can do to get the camera working with Hardy Heron?

Thanks for any help you can be, Ray Parrish

My guess is that the camera already got mounted in /media or /mnt and
can therefore not make the second mount from the photo software you
are running. Try disable automatic mound somewhere in the Preferences
menu as far as I remember.

I checked in both /media, and /mnt, and the samera was not mounted in
either place. I was wondering if perhaps the camera not being mounted is
the problem?

How do I go about manually mounting the camera? I want to attempt to
copy the files off of it with Nautilus instead of using the Photo
Manager, which is what is having the problem now.

A "from the hip"-suggestion, check the camera's menus
for usb-settings controlling if the camera should
present itself as a camera or usb-storage to the
computer.

Or you could buy a memory-card reader compatible
with the cameras memory-card, assuming the camera has
a removable memory-card.

Best regards

I just did an lsusb, and got the following results -

ray at RaysComputer:~/Videos$ lsusb
Bus 002 Device 001: ID 0000:0000
Bus 001 Device 005: ID 03f0:4002 Hewlett-Packard PhotoSmart 720 /
PhotoSmart 935 (storage)
Bus 001 Device 004: ID 058f:9360 Alcor Micro Corp. 8-in-1 Media Card Reader
Bus 001 Device 003: ID 046d:c045 Logitech, Inc.
Bus 001 Device 002: ID 0c45:612e Microdia
Bus 001 Device 001: ID 0000:0000

That is identifying the camera as a 720, or 935 model number instead of
the 337 model number on the front of the camera.

I hope this information helps get this problem solved.

Well, none of the launch pad bugs fit exactly, but I did find some
messages in the log files. The following happens each time I plug the
camera into the USB port.

So, evidently it's not reading the capacity of the scsi disk in the
camera, and that is causing the failure. I'm not sure how one would go
about fixing that problem. Any suggestions?

Thanks for running the search for me. I've been reading the links from
the results of that search, and so far most of them are talking about
slow speeds when using USB.

I think I'm going to go ahead and register my own bug report with
Launchpad, and see if I can get any results that way, as this so far is
specific only to this camera, with all other USB devices working no
problem on my system.

Hello,
I am thinking of buying an HP Photosmart E337 from a friend of mine, and
I have it hooked up to my computer with a USB cable that comes with it.
I can get the camera to say it is connecting on it's screen, and the pop
up from Ubuntu recognizes a camera is attached, and asks if I want to
import the pictures.
However, when I clcik OK it shows me two slightly different selections
of camera to import from, and both of them fail to connect with an
"unspecified error" error message.
Is there anything I can do to get the camera working with Hardy Heron?
Ray, most often you can copy images from camera media faster plugged into
a reader on your 'puter or on a USB card reader.....made to read various
formats, then you can direct from a camera. I never hook up any of my
Canon SLRs direct to the PC.

However, when I clcik OK it shows me two slightly different selections
of camera to import from, and both of them fail to connect with an
"unspecified error" error message.
Is there anything I can do to get the camera working with Hardy Heron?
Ray, most often you can copy images from camera media faster plugged into
a reader on your 'puter or on a USB card reader.....made to read various
formats, then you can direct from a camera. I never hook up any of my
Canon SLRs direct to the PC.

This camera doesn't have any memory cards in it, it just has an internal
drive, so I have to hook it up via USB. I rebooted to windows, and it
worked flawlessly with it, so I managed to import the pictures, but I
would really like to be able to do it from Linux, as I hate booting into
windows.

Ok.....now I understand the predicament. Did you try using the
"hardware" utility?
'Just an idea.

All the hardware utility gives me, is access to whether or not to use
the proprietary nVidia drivers for my video card. Nothing else in there.

Thanks for trying. Ray Parrish

I didn't think it would show anything, but worth the try. From a very
quick check
it would appear that there are a number of cameras that have the same
problem.
Not that is any help. :(
