I was a happy owner of a 0c45:6270 model. I was testing it in my recent
fresh install of Debian Lenny and it worked fine.
But now, it has automatically stopped working and when I plug it, this
is the output of dmesg:

Unsupported sensor!!??! What the h..
Does it mean that I have a bricked webcam? How could it happen? Is it
possible to unbrick it??
At the moment the only use of it seems to be used as flashlight...
I understand... but well, I will try another day with the new version of gspca
as you said. I didn't know that driver and if I get something interesting
I'll come back to this mailing list to inform you.
I don't have still clear why did it happen.
Do you think that it happened because the webcam was faulty? (It was cheap
so I cannot expect the components inside are of the best quality).
Or otherwise it happened because of this driver (sn9c20x) that maybe did
something wrong at the low level with registers?
Is there any other reason?
