How to mount a USB microdrive under Linux

Of sourse nothing is easy - we've established that.

I found good instruction from Using Digital Still Photography Devices with GNU/Linux.

Key takeaway was the following set of instructions:

Mount the camera on a specified mount point (such as /mnt/film)

mount -t usbfs none /proc/bus/usb
modprobe usb-storage
mkdir -p /mnt/film
mount /dev/sda1 /mnt/film

Unfortunately, while it apparrently successfully mounted the Hitachi Microdrive, going to the /mnt/film directory showed an empty listing. Similarly, the /proc/bus/usb directory should have a device file and doesn't.

So work to do...
