I have 2 digital cameras ,the Canon G9, and the Sony cybershot,
Well my problem is that, when I plug the G9 my laptop won't recognize it!
but when I put the cybershot it does!
that's problem,
If there's an alternative, what is it and how much is it? unless it's free.

Do you have a CD for the G9. Sometimes, these cameras have installation disks that install the drivers required for it to be recognized. If you don't have one, maybe you can buy one. It won't be that expensive.

If by "when I plug the G9 my laptop won't recognize it" you just mean it doesn't appear in Nautilus as a drive, don't panic!

Plug in the camera, open "F-spot", try to "import photos" using that. It should show the camera as a source to import photos from.

Or have you already tried using f-spot?
