also what OS is he using ?
also just a side not ...
i actually had same problem .... still working on fiinding out why
i have cheap veo stingray cam ..sorry got it at wallyworld ...since I upgraded to newest board with six usb and raid and the whole works ..the damn thing only works in one usb ..yes I said ONE ... but i can plug up newer scanner in all six different ports and it works ...i would suggest doing what i did
take two things you know usb and try them ..make sure you know they work ... i am going to update drives as far as my little cam goes ..but hey he works lol ...
plus on another pc ..I had to drop his usb to 1.1 ... dont know why but 2.0 would not fly with his cam or scanner ... just side notes ...
you have anything good to check with ??? also there is windows usb patch out there for windows ...usb 2.0 patch ..I would try that too ... just a note ..
just add me as contact and message me
let me know if it works for you ..just my two cents
okay just got back and tested my little veo stingray cam it does work in all ports ... .it shows it installed and everyhting but if i use the program it came with it doesnt work ... .but if I use yahoo messenger or msn messenger with web cam abilities it works ...lol go chew on that one for awhile if someone can figure that out let me know ...I have updated drivers and software ..I might just download some software ..just wanted ot catch some still images lol ..but only one usb port I can put it in and the program that can with disc will work ..funny
