With respect to permissions on the device - I did the same thing I did 
for serial port -

/etc/security/console.perms.d/51-custom.perms :

# device classes -- these are shell-style globs

# permission definitions
<console> 0600 <garmin> 0660 root.uucp
<console> 0600 <firewire> 0600 root.root

The perms are correct after logging in, once I have the camera I guess 
I'll see if it works.

As far as the hard drive I'll use, I think I will go SATA-II just to 
avoid any issues.
