Problems with video camera


Hi everyone,

I have a Jazz HDV178 usb video camera. When I plugin it defaults to storage mode, which works fine, when I switch to camera mode linux doesn't recognize it (ls /dev/video* brings up nothing). I have no other audio or video devices installed. I am running Ubuntu 11.04, any help would be great thanks.

When I type in dmesg the response is very long, is there a way to shorten it or find out exactly what part you need?

When the camera is set to storage dmesg gives the following:

[59886.771150] FAT: Filesystem error (dev sdb1)

When the camera is set to camera, dmesg gives the following:

Even when I take out the card it still doesn't want to work. The new dmesg is:

[ 668.417129] sd 4:0:0:0: [sdb] 70464 512-byte logical blocks: (36.0 MB/34.4 MiB)
[ 668.417742] sd 4:0:0:0: [sdb] Write Protect is off
[ 668.417750] sd 4:0:0:0: [sdb] Mode Sense: 00 06 00 00
[ 668.417756] sd 4:0:0:0: [sdb] Assuming drive cache: write through
[ 668.420122] sd 4:0:0:0: [sdb] Assuming drive cache: write through
[ 668.422220] sdb: sdb1
[ 668.424248] sd 4:0:0:0: [sdb] Assuming drive cache: write through
[ 668.424258] sd 4:0:0:0: [sdb] Attached SCSI removable disk
[ 680.158178] usb 1-1: USB disconnect, address 8
[ 684.440074] usb 1-1: new high speed USB device using ehci_hcd and address 9

I'm really not sure what this all means.
