your windoze disk is useless in linux operating systems like ubuntu.
plug in your cam and start the program called cheese to see if your cam works.

okay. this logitech website says they don't support linux

but plug it in and give it a try and see. chances are that it won't work. i have 2 logitech webcams and they don't work either.

This says it is supported by UVC. The drivers are already built into the kernel, so you should, in theory, be able to just plug it in and go.

Can you help with this problem?
