    how to check whats in your usb ports & uninstall drivers?

    ok i bought a ps2 eyetoy and found a place to install drivers to make it work as a webcam. it worked fine at first until i talked to my friend on msn then it froze on my little preview screen. after that, i took out the usb plug and plugged it back in only to get a your usb device has malfunctioned.

    i restart my pc and tried again. it works for at least 10 seconds then freezes again. is there a way to check my usb ports like whats connected and how do you uninstall drivers? thanks

    My advice is to not use the eye toy as a web cam on your computer, because it wasn't designed to be used as one on a PC. If you really need tech support, contact the place where you got the drivers from, they more then likely can give you the help you need.

    why dont you just buy the one that's really for a PC?
    You can get better quality than using the cam that is for
    a PS.. what do you think?

    If you don't like me, it's mind over matter.
    I don't mind and you don't matter

    ahh i fixed the problem. i was using it through a 4-port usb and i assume it doesnt get the data fast enough so it freezes then i just plugged it in a 1 slot and it works. ALSO, the eyetoy CAN be used as a webcam for pc and it has great quality. you just need to install the drivers =p

    If it works without the hub, (and you had other devices connected to the hub) then it sounds more like a 'POWER' issue, with the device using the USB connection for both data and power... I've heard of some USB hubs having a separate power brick just to avoid this issue...
