I have just bought an unbranded webcam (setting myself up for disappointment I know) that has a mic and uses usb 2.0. The mic works but the cam doesn't output anything. Anyone any ideas? Other threads ask for the outputs of lsusb and lsmod, so here they are:

output of lsusb:

Please, I don't want to have to use it on my girlfriend's Windows machine!
