I searched on google and confirmed that ubuntu version 7.x worked with my webcam using the gspca. The hardware ID is 0x092E.

However, my current ubuntu version of 9.1 doesn't work. Both Cheese, and a webcam test website doesn't detect my webcam at all. The webcam LED just stays on all the time.

I'm not too sure where to go from here.

The following is the output from my dmesg:

[  379.258822] usb 2-1: USB disconnect, address 2
