USB has stopped working


My philips USB webcam used to work just fine until while capturing a video the system rebooted spontaniously (I had captured video successfully before) and now the USB system seems to be broken. The webcam is the only USB device I have so I can't try anything else. I've done some research already and the errors I'm getting indicate that it's the USB system thats causing the problems and not v4l etc.

When I plug in the webcam I get the following messages:
Feb 22 22:38:19 kidslinux kernel: usb_control/bulk_msg: timeout
Feb 22 22:38:19 kidslinux kernel: usb.c: USB device not accepting new
address=6 (error=-110)

Like I said it worked fine before and it still works fine on Windows so I reckon the crash left something broken or 'locked'.

I have SuSE 7.3 with 2.4.16 Kernel.

I already tried noapic and disableapic boot options.

Any suggestions welcome.

usb_control/bulk_msg: timeout

i get those a lot... running a webcam with 10second filewrites with camsource/phillips cam. After an hour the camsource stops taking pix... if restarted it starts working. Then occasionly, i just get a poop on the screen of registers/data and the system is fubar until reboot.
