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.

My camers is listed and has always worked until now. What is wrong?

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?
