Default Problems mounting Nikon D40 Camera, vfat FS issue?

Hello all,

Trying for the first time to download images from a new Nikon D40 camera.
libgphoto2 lists the camera as supported in PTP mode. I have tried using PTP
mode with digikam (hooking up the camera directly), and also simply trying to
mount the memory card using a card reader. Both methods fail.

The card is recognized:

usb 1-5: new high speed USB device using ehci_hcd and address 2
usb 1-5: configuration #1 chosen from 1 choice
scsi6 : SCSI emulation for USB Mass Storage devices
usb-storage: device found at 2
usb-storage: waiting for device to settle before scanning
scsi 6:0:0:0: Direct-Access Generic STORAGE DEVICE 0001 PQ: 0 ANSI: 0
sd 6:0:0:0: [sdc] Attached SCSI removable disk
sd 6:0:0:0: Attached scsi generic sg3 type 0
usb-storage: device scan complete
sd 6:0:0:0: [sdc] 3970048 512-byte hardware sectors (2033 MB)
sd 6:0:0:0: [sdc] Write Protect is off
sd 6:0:0:0: [sdc] Mode Sense: 02 00 00 00
sd 6:0:0:0: [sdc] Assuming drive cache: write through
sd 6:0:0:0: [sdc] 3970048 512-byte hardware sectors (2033 MB)
sd 6:0:0:0: [sdc] Write Protect is off
sd 6:0:0:0: [sdc] Mode Sense: 02 00 00 00
sd 6:0:0:0: [sdc] Assuming drive cache: write through
sdc: sdc1

Attempts in PTP mode fail with digikam reporting "Failed to connect to the
camera. Please make sure it is connected properly and turned on". The camera
itself reports that it is connected to the computer properly. When directly
mounting I get:


# mount -t vfat /dev/sdc1 /mnt/camera
mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/sdc1,
missing codepage or helper program, or other error
In some cases useful info is found in syslog - try
dmesg | tail or so

I have these lines in my dmesg whenever I try to mount it, or use PTP mode:

Unable to load NLS charset cp437
FAT: codepage cp437 not found

In my kernel config I have this:

(437) Default codepage for FAT

So, is there something else I need to get this codepage? The camera appears to
be detected just fine, and the issue seems to be directly related to mounting
the vfat filesystem and this missing codepage...

Just to note: It is a stable amd64 Gentoo system, and I do have vfat module
loaded when I attempt to mount.

Any other ideas?

Thanks for consideration,
-d
