Debugging a mount problem

Hey folk.

I have a Sony dsc p3. It has a USB oriface which on the W thing shows up
as yet another drive. I've insmodded the usb-storage stuff, setup an fstab
entry and plugged the camera in. I get a log message saying that it found
a new disc in USB land called "sda".

I go to mount, and it simply never comes back.

So, after all that, how do I debug a mount problem like this? I know there
is a verbose mode, but will it help? I am a bit hesitant to randomly try,
because I don't like rebooting the box...
