I have no idea if your version of Linux will see the "device", but I do know
that PhotoFunStudio is released for "Windows Only" on my CD.
Basically I don't use the supplied software, and prefer to use the SD card
directly into my notebook SD slot!
That is what I had always done, just plug the card into my card reader under windows. I did find that the PhotofunStudio, was slow to load when I was useing windows xp media center.
I switched to ubuntu because it has a lot of free open source stuff. And Kdenlive is better than windows movie maker.
