Description

After upgrading my USB Webcam to a Logitech C310, the device is correctly identified and works with both Ekiga and to a degree with Cheese Webcam Booth, the device is correctly listed as providing 160x120, 320x240, 640x480 and 1280x960 resolutions. While single photo and burst photo mode work correctly there is an issue with video recording as any resolution.

When video mode is selected, the Cheese Webcam Booth screen goes black, the start video recording button can be pressed but only a single image is recorded.

Thinking this was a data rate issue on the USB bus, I added a Belkin Digiconnect 5 Port USB 2.0 PCI card to my system which was correctly identified and the Logitech C310 was plugged into this card. The problem still remains with the video recording, it only appears to record 0.01 seconds of video.

I have used the Belkin Digiconnect USB card for connecting an external HDD and it works perfectly copying around 500GB.
