You need to be much more specific about what it is.

I'll take a guess that it's a usb device. If so, when it is plugged in please run the following command and post the output
Code:
lsusb
Also please tell us what linux distribution and version you are running.

As far as I know that device should work. The error message you quoted from camorama is not so helpful, so could you please try the camera with another program for example gqview, ekiga, empathy or perhaps cheese?
