Usb spca5xx camera problem...

Hi all,

I using Logitech QuickCam Go model usb camera. I have cross-compiled
the spca5xx driver to the pxa255 arm-based board. After inserting the
module my camera was recognized as Logitech Quick Cam chat and no

When i do spcacat,
./spcacat -N 2 -f jpg (I have tried almost all the options here)
. .
. .
. .
. .

VIDIOCGMBUF size 2457616 frames 2 offets[0]=0 offsets[1]=1228808
Waiting .... for Incoming Events. CTrl_c to stop !!!!
And it stops here and waiting and waiting for a very long time.
Then I Searched the driver code and got the information that the urb status is
not at all up. Suspecting to be a problem on the hardware i tried all
the following cameras,
Logitech Quick Cam Easy.
Logitech Quick Cam Messenger.
Intex camera.
All the models gave the same result. Is there a problem with my usb-core
system?? I mean on the usb core?? What may be the problem even if my camera is detected
perfectly but cannot take pictures...
