Perhaps your camera is now (for ex.) /dev/sda2 instead of /dev/sda1?
(The number that it gets is generally a function of the sequential
loading of drivers. Cameras usually are USB mass-storage devices.)

I would try this:

- start "tail -f /var/log/kern.log" in a terminal
- unplug and plug in the camera
- look for log lines describing the camera; information is printed to
  the log whenever a new USB device is plugged in

Embedded in that should be the device name you need.
