Excellent :-)

There are only two sounds, "Transfer Complete" and "No Files", I think you're 
getting "No files".

The reason is that camera storage devices have a standard layout with the 
images in a subdirectory of a main directory of a fixed name ("dcim").  The 
script uses this knowledge to find the pictures (in fact, it finds all 
pictiures in any subdir of /dcim, for example, /dcim/mypics/*).  So this is 
why it is failing in your case, your memory stick directory structure is not 
that of a camera.

If you move your files to all be inside a /dcim/dummy/ folder on your device, 
it should work - but I'm not sure it will retain any folder structure below 
that, since that is not what is found in a camera.
