well thats not right its coming back as a standard usb port used by everyone.
is your motherboard drivers installed ?
the reason i ask is simple, this would only happen if the usb drivers for your motherboard are not fully in place.
if possible update your full motherboard chipset drivers
then once thats done,
go online, plug the cam in and let windows auto search for a driver.
i have a feeling you might have what is
classed as a driver free cam, thats rubbish as you still need the driver to come from windows update in order to work the cam
driver cd for your motherboard ?
if thats the case let me know the make and model number of your pc / laptop and i will find you the correct drivers.
if its a non shop bought system, let me know its motherboard make and model and again i will be able to find you the drivers.
I am running windows 7
Thanks for the good effort, but did not work
ok did the intel chipset driver install ok ?
did you restart the pc afterwards ?
plug the cam in and run windows update the manual way and see if it picks anything up for you.
once its checked your system look under optional updates for any possible driver
i am also double checking the info you gave me and it might and i do mean might be a aveotek cam, i am trying to confirm that.
if it is you might be in trouble as i can't open the .com or the com.hk sites anymore, i need to see if they have gone bust.
even if they have gone bust i will still see whats left on the net driver wise, the problem is i have done so many of these cams now that i may have even done this one before so i have alot of data to check over.
in the mean time try the above, if that don't work see if the device id string has now changed since the chipset driver install, if it has please let me know.
Windows has stopped this device because it has reported problems. (Code 43)
that code means the driver that is installed has told windows there is a problem with the device its trying to control.
if you have loaded any cam drivers uninstall them from add remove programs, or in windows vista/windows 7 control panel, programs
then unplug the cam
restart windows, go online and plug the cam in once again.
