Usb extention lead doesn't work with webcam

Hi I have a logitech 5000 webcam which works fine plugged into the usb port of my pc. However when I plug in an extenion cable and then my web cam I get an error message saying that the computer doesn't recognise the device. Previously to this I had a logitech 4000 which worked fine with the same usb extention cable. Any advice? Thanks

So you know the cam is ok and the cable, so you will have to point to the usb port not being able to push enough power through the cable to the camera as it must take a higher voltage than the other cam. Make sure that the other cam software is uninstalled and you have done registry clean in case of conflicts and also try using a different usb port but install the camera with the driver again using the extension in it, aplogies if you did, i am assuming you may have installed the camera directly without the extension cable.

Webcam installation

When you installed the camera did you use generic Windows drivers? If so, try going to the logitech website and downloading the latest drivers for the web-cam. Unplug the camera before installing the new drivers, it may prompt you to plug in your camera, if not plug it in once the installation is complete. Restart your computer and make sure your plugged in as well if it is a laptop. Another reason for no response could be no power is coming through the USB port, either because the power connection is burnt out (this doesn't mean that powered USB devices don't work in the port) or it reverted to a 1.1 version of USB. This is a common glitch that can usually be fixed by changing USB ports or restarting the computer. Make sure you don't have too many devices being powered only through the USB port. If any USB product also comes with an adapter always use that adapter if possible instead of using the USB to power it. This will ensure a longer life of your ports. If the latest drivers are installed and you know you have a working USB port that provides power then you more than likely have a bum camera. (Electronics generally fail either very early or very late in their life cycle)

I have the same WebCam and am experiencing the same problem.

I suspect that the voltage drop across the lead is enough to prevent the webcam from working.

Computer not recognizing web camera

The only other thing that I would suggest you try to do is (if possible) goto another PC or maybe a friends PC and plug the web cam in. If it does the same thing then the web cam no longer works. If it does work, then you may want to try another USB port on your PC.

Logitech camera plugged in but still can't recognise device.It always says device not pluged in.

please, note if the USB drivers for logitech were installed when the rest of software was. only as that the motherboard will recognize the webcam.

in the logitech's webcam cd, you'll see a chapter with only USB DRIVERS. if not, you can find them in
it's free registration and easy to use site.

Download the latest driver for your OS (i assume you are using windowsXP). Then when it asks you for the driver direct the location to the place where you have downloaded the latest from logitech.
