Earlier Optio models requiered to add some lines in
"driver/usb/storage/unusual_devs.h" in order to operate. It might still
be the same case with Optio S6

The problem is that Optio S6 has a small internal memory. If the camera
is not recognized as usb storage device, I won't be able to fetch the
files from the internal memory.
I hope it is not the case but Pentax might also use a proprietary file
system to store the pictures !
