I can mount my Minolta A1 camera without any problem (on kernel
2.6). The A2 should work fine.
Verify that your usb_storage and usb_ohci (this one may depend on your
hardware, other hardware need usb_ehci) modules are loaded.
Add this in your /etc/fstab:
/dev/sda1 /mnt/minolta/ vfat rw,user,noauto 0 0
none /proc/bus/usb usbfs defaults 0 0
After your have plugged your camera, do :
$ mount /mnt/minolta
And you should be able to read your files.
