    Videocamera and Ubuntu

    Hello all

    I have a Medion camcorder with a DV-out, that I had (previously) connected to a Windows machine, on the windows machine i can connect true USB.

    Now I have a Ubuntu 9.04 laptop and it will not recognize the camera.

    The command lsusb I see the camera either. Now my question (s)

    1. this camera,can i connect it with USB?
    2. how can I install this
    3. I do manage that, what software can I use best. ?

    This is a Medion MD9035
