In fact, Mint does not seem to have much love for USB devices at all.
Here is output from lsusb...

But the Memorex drive is not shown as a mount point in the file manager or in terminal (via the mount command) and neither of the two cameras is detected by any applications. I'm also not sure if any form of Jasper is built into Mint, or if it can be installed in Mint (because I could not find it in the package manager). The fact that it does not display the Memorex drive is made more ridiculous by the fact that this is the drive on which Mint is installed!
So, anyway, I know that the NX-6000 is supposed to be UVC compatible. How about the VX-1000?
