I have a bit of a weird problem. I have a USB webcam from a laptop I want to use with a RP0W.
Here are my tested scenarios: [works, yes|no]
[yes] Cam soldered to USB Type A connector and RP3B
[yes] Cam soldered to Type A with positive lead detached and bridged with multimeter to measure current and RP3B
[no_] Cam soldered to Type A plugged into OTG adapter to B Micro and RP0W
[no_] Cam soldered to USB Type B Micro connector and RP0W
[yes] Cam soldered to Type B Micro with positive lead detached and bridged with multimeter to measure current and RP0W
I measure the same current (and 5V) with both connector/board combinations, lsusb lists the camera and I get the blue LED lighting up on the camera when starting up motion on Raspian.
Only with the Micro connector completely soldered and connected to the RP0W it's not listed with lsusb or works ...
I am out of ideas.
Maybe I can solder the camera to GPIO and not use the port altogether?
Thanks in advance, cheers!
