Looks like that particular camera may not be supported by the GPhoto library:

Do you have an SD card reader? You could always pop the memory card out and try importing that way.

No I don't and don't even know what it is. How about just telling me how to fix the problem aside from getting a new system and getting away fro, Ubuntu.

Can you help with this problem?
