    Webcam Creative Notebook PD1170 ID 0572:0041 Conexant does not work on Hardy Heron

    Hello,

    I'm new with Linux and I started with Hardy Heron. I have 2 webcams:

    Creative Notebook Pro, model VF0250 -- ID 041e:4051 that works ok
    Creative Notebook, model PD1170 -- ID ID 0572:0041 that does not work at all.

    I tried with Xawtv, Cheese and Camorama, Ekiga and Mplayer. Webcam light turns on, all these programs DO connect to video device /dev/video0 and the trace is the same with both cameras. It looks like all of them hang with Creative Notebook PD1170.

    I tried (among other thousand things) installing the latest version of the gspca driver from http://mxhaard.free.fr/download.html but it did not work.

    Finally I tried with a GUTSY GIBBON LiveCD and BOTH cameras worked perfectly

    I don't if this bug? has to do with Hardy Heron or with gspca driver ... and where should I report this bug? ...

    Thanks

    Re: Webcam Creative Notebook PD1170 ID 0572:0041 Conexant does not work on Hardy Her

    Hello,

    Sorry, I was wrong: PD1170 does work with Hardy ... but ...

    I tried Hardy liveCD and Gutsy liveCD wih my laptop HP Compaq nx6125 and boh cameras worked with Ekiga.

    I installed Gutsy in my Fujitsu-Siemens PC Esprimo P2411 sempron and PD1170 webcam doesn't work. All programs (Ekiga, camorama ...) hang The other webcam (Notebook Pro) works perfectly ... I need both running because I would like to install a video surveillance system at home using Zoneminder ...

    Any ideas? Something to do with my PC's USB or graphic card? I'm lost ...

    Re: Webcam Creative Notebook PD1170 ID 0572:0041 Conexant does not work on Hardy Her

    Here is syslog output when PD1170 is connected to my PC. There are 2 lines, different from the syslog output in my laptop ... I suppose that the error has to do with the USB controller ... looks like “No space left on device” spca5xx error http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=247646&page=3 but it was supposed to be fixed in gspca driver ... any ideas?

    Re: Webcam Creative Notebook PD1170 ID 0572:0041 Conexant does not work on Hardy Her

    I solved the problem, it has to do with the USB ports of my motherboard. It looks like they don't give enough bandwidth for PD1170 (they do for the VF0250 ...)

    I bought a PCI card with 2 USBs and now it works fine!

    I hope this hepls ...
