I bet it uses paride or a similar driver. It probably acts like a
parallel port hard drive. Try the relevant HOWTOs for paride, or
maybe the Parallel HOWOT.

It may not take that size/type of card. Is the card writable? Usually
cameras like one partition that fills the whole disk, formatted as
msdos or vfat. Usually they prefer FAT16/32 formats from DOS or Windows
tools. If the card has nothing that you want, use dd if=/dev/zero to
wipe it clean, then use DOS or Windows format, Windows preferably.
