It was working just fine, and for no reason, the software wouldn't recognize that the camera was plugged in. It gave me some kind of warning when i plugged it in - like i always do - it was about installing software (can't remember exactly what . I've installed the latest software, and the software is up to date and works fine, however it keeps telling me that there is no camera plugged in while it is plugged in to a usb port??? whats the deal, why won't it recognize the 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.
unplug your web cam then restart your computer after then when computer loaded all programs and stable plug your web cam when pc recognizing it and ask for driver then put cd and follow the wizard instruction guide.
I don't think XP pro vs XP home would make a difference here. Did your camera come with a driver disk? You might need to install some software for your computer to recognize the camera.
Another easier way is to just get a card reader. I picked one up for about 15 bucks and it reads every kind of card imaginable. I use Google's Picasa software (www.picasa.com) on Windows, it recognizes when a memory card has been plugged in and goes right to the screen where you can start importing your pics.
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.
