There seems to be a transfer-ownership issue with files on/from my new
(to me) Canon digi-cam.
To upload photos, I transfer the SD card from the camera to my HP
network-attached Photosmart printer, revealed to the network as a
Windows share (\\PrinterHostNM\MEMORY_CARD\DCIM\101CANON).
Nautilus reports Owner, Group, and Permissions as "unknown", both on the
card/printer, and (surprisingly enough) on the NAS' disk after transfer.
The transfer process itself is marred by "Error while copying
"IMG_0007.JPG" [etc] = Permission denied, errmsgs on (not quite) every
individual file. Yet if I "Skip" it copies the image (apparently quite
correctly and completely).
However the Freecom NAS appears to be choking, and responds sluggishly
both to continuing the original mass-copy instruction, and to SSH
commands. (The NAS runs a minimal Linux but exposes the disk through
Samba/a series of Windows shares)
SSH-ing into the NAS shows the following at the command line [ls]:
-rw-rw-rw- 1 admin admin 557040 Jan 28 23:58 IMG_0001.JPG
("admin" being the non-root user utilised in the Nautilus
My previous digi-cam was a Sony and transferring images from its
MemoryStick and in the same manner worked without flagging errors - but
had the same owner/group/access confusion between Nautilus and SSH.
I have tried SSH-ing into the NAS and then rsync-ing the images from the
printer/SD-card, but it makes no different. I'm open to using a
different, but effective, tool or technique...
Does anyone else use a Canon digicam and experience the same, or
(hopefully) have a 'fix' to advise please?
