Reading image data from Nikon COOLPIX5700

> Japanese

This is a way of reading image data from E5700 into FreeBSD box, I've tried.


Since E5700 uses CompatFlash (or MicroDrive) as a storage medium, we have 2 ways to read pictures into our laptop FreeBSD box:

I tried the USB connection.


I attempted to connect E5700 up to my note PC by the bundled USB cable. The PC is Panasonic's CF-B5FR running FreeBSD 4.7-STABLE as of 2002/11/21.

Then it probed as the following.

How E5700 probed

At this time, E5700 had 256MB CompactFlash card.

Then I mounted da0s1 on /mnt as the msdos filesystem.

ryoko% su
ryoko# mount -t msdos /dev/da0s1 /mnt

There was no problem on reading files. xv(1) and jhead(1) were useful to view images and their exif information.

mtools(1) may also work.
