As I noted with my example of an Olympus camera with a USB connector, the GNOME Volume Manager is capable of detecting that camera after it is connected, and mounting its contents as a storage device. With the contents of a digital camera mounted, you can use your camera as a USB mass storage device by

• Opening the mounted directory in a folder window and using any file manager features to work with the images

• Changing to the mounted directory from the shell and using commands to copy, move, rename, or delete digital images

Of course, with your camera mounted as a file system, you are not limited to using it only for digital images. You can use it to store any kind of files you like, essentially using the camera as a storage device. The following list is a partial summary of digital cameras that can be used as a USB storage device:
