I know it's a very old thread, but I'm hoping someone will help
I tried to do the same on my acer with a 2MP webcam from Dell studio 1555,I was able to connect it only once, but after that it's just giving me either uknown device or usb composite device. I'm not sure if it needs more mA to work or should I just connect it to 5V USB port and forget about the 3.3V I get from the webcam connector.
any help you could provide is appreciated!!!
