my dad has got himself a new webcam, i cant remember the name off the top of my head,but it was a wide angal, follow you round the room tipe
.anyway i tryed to istall it and all the softwere seemd to load fine but when i was instructed to plug in the webcan into the usb it woudnt reconise it and wouldnt install, i pluged the old cam back in and that worked fine,i tried all the ports same thing, he took it back to pc world and that had it runing strat away , he tried it on his lap top but it didnt have the power ,so i took it home to my pc ,installed it and it worked fine.
the only thing i can think off is it may be something to do with the grafix card ,but the pc is only about a year old, and running on xp
any idears
im stuck.
