Multiple USB cameras

I am working on a project which involves taking time-lapse images using USB microscopes (these are essentially the same as webcams). In order to reduce the time taken to acquire images I would like to be able to capture images from 3 different USB microscopes simultaneous on one PC.


I have managed to connect two webcams simultaneously using third-party software such as ispy (http://www.ispyconnect.com/) and also by running devices in separate virtual machines however the third camera will not remain stable. I do not know whether this is a bandwidth issue or an issue with conflicting drivers.

I’m not necessarily expecting in depth advice it would just be great if someone out there is able to tell me how to identify the problem.

Thanks for your time.
