The camera is obviously recognized or you wouldn't be able to use it.
Please check your gnome system settings for "Removeable Media" and uncheck the box at the bottom which reads "Never prompt or start programs on media insertion".

is the tail output. I use KDE and not Gnome so dont have any Gnome settings AFAIK.
Yes the camera is recognized and always was, it's just now I dont see the option to open the various programs I have which can handle it. Other USB devices do show up like my USB HDD which gives me the 3 options.
