WebCam on USB 1 port

  MartynHoll 16:43 14 Jan 2006

A friend has just contacted me to find out why his new webcam isn't working on his desktop PC. It works on his Laptop via a USB 2 port but not on on a USB 1 port. He is the process of checking the documentation but I would think that this would be the problem - any thoughts?

most are backward compatable but if it is purely usb2 it will not work. Cameras need to shift a lot of data quickly for moving pictures.
