    Seems that with 12.04 and updates to .2 and .3 the kernel has taken a step backwards and no longer enables the eyetoy. The gspca_ov519 module loads and finds the eyetoy, then craps out when detecting sensors. I have raised a bug on this but not had a response yet.

    Resolved!
    Not a software bug as such, turned out to be the Intel xHCI mode setting in the bios for USB for my Asus Z87M-PLUS motherboard. Default setting was Smart Mode. This made all usb ports usb 3.0 and/or "better" than 2.0, meaning my webcmas wouldn't play nicely. Changing the bios setting to Disabled saw the camera fire up instantly, along with routine connection of my DVB USB stick.
    Other option to try is Auto, and EHCI Hand Off to Enabled
