gphoto2 ?

I am trying to get my kodak easyshare CX4230 to work with gphoto2. gphoto 2 is able to recognise and find the camera. I have the following problem running as root or regular user. Here is the error I an getting.
	      Could not claim interface 0 (Operation not permitted). Make sure no
	      other program or kernel module (e.g. dc2xx or stv680) is using the 
	      device and you have read/write access to the device.
this is off of gpohto2 faq page
.3.1. USB ports on Linux

libgphoto2 provides a user space driver for cameras, which conflicts with having a kernel driver for the camera. So in order to use libgphoto2, you have to disable all kernel drivers which want to handle the camera themselves (e.g. the Linux dc2xx or stv680 drivers). You can check whether these modules are loaded by executing lsmod.
as far as I can tell I do not have those modules loaded. maybe I missed something, here is my lsmod
