USB Camera Problems

By jingernut ·
Hi Guys

Hope you can help?

I have a problem installing a digital camera (USB) in a
windows XP enviroment, intially I was experiencing error
messages when I installed the drivers informing me that
the PC did not have enough disc space when I have more
than enough so I was not able to install the drivers. Now
I has removed all drivers and still have the digital camera
detected in device manager but when I attempts to un-
install the device I keep getting the following error
message "this device cannot be removed because it is a
boot device". This camera has been tried on a number of
different PC's with the same results, can you advise on
how to resolve this issue. This is quite urgent

Thanks for your help

Martin

Hi Martin, I would recommend that you go to the manufacturer's website and take a look for any known issues, such as the one that you are experiencing. I think you'll find more information there. Just a thought.

XP doesn't have native USB support. Service Pack 1 fixed that.

Martin,

I would love to assist in finding a solution to your problem, but I would need more information on what specific camera you are using and the specifics of your operating system would be a nice start.
Camera: Manaufacturer and Model
OS: Home or Pro, Service Pack #?(if any)

USB wise, I just want to mention that can be very important to follow the manufacturer's instructions on when to install the software vs when to plug in the device. Some times you install then plugin other times you plugin then install. If the order is not performed correctly and the software is (buggy) there may be quite a few steps needed to removed the previous installation before being able to perform the steps correctly. You may want to double check the instructions and see if this may have happened and if so, research online what the solution would be on their website.

If you post the OS ans Camera specifics (as much as you know) we may be able to help you find the answer as well.

Good luck

I do hope you don't have philips funcam pcvc665k. It will not work on xp,... yet. MS is working on it , to give philips the answer. If you can access your tools, tweak, and other programs, then completely delete all previous cam stuff. Totally re-install using manual. Look up ALL on your cam. pick from the suggested lists, when you get to the trouble shooter, hopefully you do, it will guide you .you may need to re start a few times, and re-delete as well, but the system will collect info on your cam and be better prepared to install. you ports may be off a bit, so try a different port. if you have a unit on one port and it is working, try that port. Diagnose will help you as well. let me know how you do. I can walk you through most problems. Bry.

Win XP (and the entire Win 2000 family) has had problems with USB devices from the beginning.I have PC's using devices that run fine, some don't.MS has a fix in SP1a that may do it for you. My company and MS are working to find a resolution to this (we have approx 28,000 PC's in our system).Hopefully soon! Follow this link for MS Knowledgebase info and links to SP1a.
