My Logitech webcam has always been working up until a month ago. When I plug it into the usb port the computer doesn't recognize the camera at all or if it does...it only recognizes the cam as an "unknown device." All i had to do was plug it in to my cousins computer for it to work, it just installed inself and it did the same thing for me when I plugged it into my personal computer at home which is windows xp. What could be the problem?

...Oh...its a basic Logitech Quickcam.

You could install the latest drivers for the unit. Just go to logitech.com, download and install.

I have the same unit, and haven't had any problems so far, but have installed the driver from logitech.com everytime I've rebuilt the computer.

If that still doesn't work, try un-installing the Logitech software, then re-installing.

MartyGeek is absolutely right.

I have an ASUS web cam and had to download a driver from the website before it even worked.

Let us know,
