What do you see when you issue the command:

gphoto2 -L

If you see the list of files on the camera, you can get a file:

gphoto2 --get-file 1   (to get file #1)
gphoto2 -P             (to get all files)

I am having some problem with the latest version of gphoto2 (both FC5 and
FC6), so I rolled back to an earlier version.
