/dev/video0 dropping

Sat Oct 20, 2012 3:21 pm

hi....

Im a bit of a noob at this, but I plugged a webcam into my usb hub. I noticed that /dev/video0 appears for a while, then it disappears.

When I plug it straight into the pi, its stable - not a problem, it always exists.

Any ideas why this might be the case?

the hub is from farnell, its this http://cpc.farnell.com/dynamode/usb-h70 ... dp/CS21973

I have a wifi dongle, an optical mouse, and a keyboard attached to the hub, as well as the webcam.
I have no idea of the model number of the webcam.
