Sony minidv handycam usb problems

I'm trying to connect my camcorder to slack9.1 when I connect it the computer freezes. I have one other usb device which is my mouse. I looked at the log and it's the usb hub not being able to allocate resources. I'm not at that computer now so I can't give you the exact message. I think it's more of a usb problem than the camcorder problem. I had the same problem in redhat 9, and never thought about fixing it becuase I hook it up to my laptop instead, but now I want to use the camcorder as a webcam or security camera. Any suggestions on programs out there for detecting movement or similar for webcams?
