gphoto and usb "port" problem

I'm trying to get my kodak dx3900 to work in gphoto and for some reason, it can't find my usb port. I have no clue why not.

libgphoto was compiled with ptp2 (the driver for my dx3900, successfully tested with 2.4 kernel; using 2.6.0 now). It compiled no problem.

Here is the output:

vexer@ominous:~$ gphoto2 --list-ports
Devices found: 1                                                               
Path                             Description
usb:                             Universal Serial Bus

vexer@ominous:~$ gphoto2 --auto-detect
Model                          Port                                            
Kodak DX3900                   usb:

as you can see, it detects my camera, yet doesn't get the usb...

More info:

dmesg gives this before and after camera turn on/off:

hub 3-0:1.0: new USB device on port 2, assigned address 6
usb 3-2: USB disconnect, address 6

But still, I get the same as above. Is it because the 2.6.0 kernel changed some stuff and libgphoto doesn't know where to look?

did anyone get the answer to this? I have the same problem.
And when I plug in a 2nd usb camera '--list-ports' tells me one of them and leaves the other one blank, but I need them both so I can run one script that tells both to take picture. Only way I know to do that is through the usb port. Pls help!
