    I'm trying to install another webcam and having a problem even with a
    tech from the company. It seems while I am installing software for the
    new cam, windows plug and play acknowledges it with its customary
    small notice at the bottom of the screen...only it mentions the name
    of the old cam that i am replacing. I go to device manager and sure
    enough the old one is still there even after removing it not only from
    add/remove area but manually from the c drive. Even disabling doesn't
    help, or uninstalling from DM doesn't help. I went to regedit and did
    a search and could not find anything about the old cam...I cannot
    install the new one because of this...anybody have some suggestion
    that I didn't try?

    richard is right as usual - but are you sure they don't share the same
    driver?
