Rodney - your reasoning seems very logical - both my computers have USB1.

I have ordered a PCMCIA to USD2.0 card for the laptop (my lathe computer). The chap says it will come tommorrow. I will report on it

I must be the odd one out. The PCMCIA to USB2.0 card came and was installed on the laptop. I plugged the camera in, but got nothing, just a black screen on "My Computer" Funnily enough I plugged it in the old USB 1 port(s) and got a picture on "My Computer".

Mach3, however, still failed on USB1 port, and now fails on the USB2 port (which is not suprising).

I found an upgrade on Microsoft for the PCMCIA card to USB, but that failed as well, saying that it could not find some information it needed.

I will keep trying when I get some more time.

Jim, you using service pack 1 or higher in XP? Dont think USB2 worked without the service packs (or updates) I may have the update on a CD here I could email it to you if you dont already have it or service pack installed.

Hood - I would appreciate that - jimpinder@tiscali.co.uk.

I will check for service pack 1 - I thought it was installed - I am sure SP2 is in, but I will check it all again.

Not really sure what you are asking regarding software. You dont need any software, all you need is a camera plugged in but the camera will have to work with Mach, if it doesnt then maybe try Klaus's video plugin.
