The basic question is "Which kernel are you running?" as many are using
later kernels to use usb storage access methods. Once you have that, my
understanding is that the USB Camera HOWTO is very reliable for these
makes, unless you lucked into something using a model that just doesn't
follow the generally common methods, such as some of the cheaper STV680
and CPIA models (although comparable support for them is *worked around*
in more recent editions of gphoto2.)
