webcam USB2-blues

  Phrixos 21:31 21 Jun 2006

I am setting up a video surveillance system in my house. I have three different cameras, each with their own different driver, so there are no conflicts. As per the software vendor's recommendations these are plugged into a PCI/USB 2.0 Host adaptor card. The first two installed, no problem--so why, I wonder is the installation of the third camera giving me the following message?

"This USB device can perfom faster if you connect it to a USB 2.0 port (for a list of available ports click here)."

Apparently, the camera doesn't know it's already plugged into a USB 2.0 port.

I unplugged this camera from the host adaptor and plugged it directly into a USB2.0 header going straight into the motherboard, and (after a new installation routine finished, I got the same messsage.

Anybody out there got a clue, what's going on here--and after I "click here" and am presented with a long list of unused USB2 ports, how do I change to a new one? They are all supposed to be USB 2.

Have you tried it on it's own?

How long a cable are you using?

Are the cables High-Speed USB certified?

device manager.

Uninstall the root hub the offending camera is plugged into and reboot. let XP find new hardware and reinstall the root hub and camera drivers

Thaks for the info guys. The problem was the cable--I guess it's 1.1 standard, when I ordered (and paid for) 2.0! Damn!
