Usually you can. It is just a removable writable medium. Often
the filesystem is FAT 16 or FAT 32, but you can change that if
you want (although your camera might then not be able to access it).
Some cameras with USB interface can also be used as a MMC/SD card
reader/writer, others (like my Canon Powershot A40) use a special
protocol and do not show up as regular drives.
