Driver for USB mini-camera

  Mr. Chips 09:15 22 Jun 2003

I recently purchased a (£20) digital camera which I want to use to 'spy' inside a birdbox.

It is a Dualscan DSC(2770) purchased from the Gadget Shop.

It appears not to come with its own driver, but probably relies on a Microsoft generic.

I use WIN98 R2. It works OK, but each time I want to use it, I have to un-plug and re-plug the USB lead.

This is inconvenient (back of PC). Any ideas what's wrong? ... or has anyone heard of a specific driver that might be preferable?

Yes ... the exact item.

DIGI PRECISION ICE BLUE (Except it's transparent!)

Any ideas on the problem please?

TXS Totally braindead.

I tried the hub but I was then told there was not enough power to run the camera .... odd that!?,, I even powered the hub with a power supply, but still not enough power ...., even odder, that!?

The camera, thank goodness, will run without a battery, so that isn't a problem.

I was thinking of putting in a small switch to cut the power lead, but that's not something I really want to do . I hope there is a more elegant solution than cutting up the usb cable.
