Put your card in it, type as root: tail -f /var/log/messages  and look for
the device it says it is.  Mount it with something similar to this command:

sudo mkdir /mnt/camera && sudo mount /dev/sda1 /mnt/camera

Replace sda1 with whatever device it says it is in the tail command above.

Then copy the files from /mnt/camera to whereever you want them.  Enjoy the
rest of your day.
