Do the command "ls -al /dev/video0", does it show up?  If yes,
then also make sure you are a member of the group "video".

Try adding the command to /etc/modprobe.d directory.  For 
example, I have a older TV card and added a file called bttv to 
the above directory, and the contents are:
"options bttv card=26 tuner=2" (minus the quotes)

Reboot and see how it works.  Hope this helps some, maybe someone 
else that has a usb card can help.
