Question about Webcams
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.

Ah yea, had that happen once. Telus sent me an installation CD but no computer in the house could read the CD.
Well, no big deal. Go to www.logitech.com and download the drivers.
