By the way i was looking around and found this module http://www.rastageeks.org/ov51x-jpeg....php/Main_Page i could not tell if it would work for me but mybe you could tell if it would work or not.
That's for cams with a ov51x chipset. Yours uses the SQ905: the trail leads from http://www.qbik.ch/usb/devices/showdev.php?id=3306 to http://gphoto.sourceforge.net/doc/manual/FAQ.html to http://www.teaser.fr/~hfiguiere/linux/digicam.html where it's verified as SQ905: "Sakar Kidz Cam 0x2770/0x9120 gphoto2/sq905 (usb)". So you can stop fiddling around and go install Gphoto2 (http://gphoto.sourceforge.net/). Definately promising.

Good luck.

The only way to find out is try, I'd say.

Program gtkam already installed in OS. It has an option for the Kidzcam. had my Camera connected, scanned for it, then set it as such and tried to detected it. Both failed.

Then try to install gphoto2 this needed libgphoto, and this needed, needed libusb.

libusb compiled well. Then tried to compile libgphoto, this worked well after the install of libusb. However, there were error messages. Then I tried to configure gphoto2, there were error message here and make failed for gphoto2.

If anyone is interested I will paste the error messages from the log here.

Tried the below in gtkam. It doesn't work either.

Hey I have the driver from a similar looking ARGUS dc-1500 camera.

Source:
http://www.camerahacker.com/Forums/D...am_driver.html

Driver for this camera:
Sakar Kidz Cam
USB ID: 0x2770/0x9120
Driver gphoto2/sq905 (usb)

Source:
http://www.teaser.fr/~hfiguiere/linux/digicam.html

A bug report for this Cam on Google (Specially a Debian list, since I use Debian, this makes me wonder if this can be the issue):
http://groups.google.ca/group/linux....2cd550bd9f5156

This last advice seems to be good to try also:

Plug it in to the camera and
usb port on your box, turn it on, then boot up your computer. It should be
recognized as sr0 or something of the like. The mount point will either be
in /media or on older version of linux, /mount. Login as root, mount the
device, the copy the images to your home directory.

Tried the following:
Found the following: scd0, sda and fd0 in /media and tried tto mount them. No progress. Here are the results:

root@box:/home/vijay# mount /media/scd0 /mnt/usb
mount: /media/scd0 is not a block device
root@box:/home/vijay# mount /media/scd0 /mnt/usb
mount: /media/scd0 is not a block device
root@box:/home/vijay# mount /media/sda /mnt/usb
mount: /media/sda is not a block device
root@box:/home/vijay# mount /media/fd0 /mnt/usb
mount: /media/fd0 is not a block device
root@box:/home/vijay# mount /media/fd0
mount: can't find /media/fd0 in /etc/fstab or /etc/mtab

The above last exercise was a waste. sda was for the mp3 player. scd0 and fd0 are present by default

Also tried it with digiKam (site below), no success.

Here is a great trick to try for this Camera. Try installing the Windows Drivers under Wine. Then try to mount any additional drives found in your PC and then use.

Software/Driver install under Wine went very well for me. However, driver failed to work, pictures from the Cam were not downloaded adn the screen frooze.
