Linux determines what driver to load depending on the chipset if it's supported. So, first thing is to search LQ for threads about the KODAK EasyShare CX7310 Digital Camera (always mention and look for full brand and version specs) and check the HCL. If nothing turns up then try to find out more about the chipset from the documents that came with it, the vendors site and searching teh intarweb. Luckily the LQ HCL shows (http://www.linuxquestions.org/hcl/sh...t=2324&cat=all) it's supported as USB Mass Storage Device (meaning you can access it as any external USB drive when connected) and a few applications to try: Digikam, Gphoto2, Gtkam.

If this isn't enough leads for you then start by plugging in the device, use "lsusb" or "usbmodules" command to see if it's loaded and look at your syslog (most likely /var/log/messages) for messages about USB. If you post (error)messages make sure you post *exact* ones.
