Hello. I have a Dell 4600 with Windows XP. I am having trouble with my PC recognizing a new webcam. I had an Orange Micro IBOT2 webcam installed previously on my PC and it worked fine. I have tried three other webcams but each time the software states webcam not found - not recognizing whe I plug it into the USB port. Two of the cameras I have tried are the Microsoft Lifecam VX-3000 and the Logitech QuickCam Messenger. I installed the software then when it tells me to connect the camera it doesnt see it. I tried all of the USB ports and nothing. Windows Plug and Play does not recognize new hardware installed when I plug these in.

When I plug the old IBOT2 camera in Plug and Play recognizes new hardware.
I checked Imaging devices under Device Manager after I plug the new webcams in and it doesnt see them but once I plug the old cam in it does.
I removed my MSN Messenger then tried reloading the new software but no luck. I made sure I downloaded the newest drivers for both new cams with same results.

Could my old webcam be written in the registry or somewhere that my PC wont recognize a new webcam?
I browsed through the registry for any signs of the old webcam and software.

Any assistance in this matter would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks - Jason

Also - I did uninstall the USB drivers through device manager to make sure that wasnt an issue.
