LifeCam VX-3000 Data is invalid

Hi guys, ive been searching high and low for a solution to this error
when installing my lifecam. Sadly, ive tried everything out there
(permissions on the USB registry area, file renames, latest lifecam
driver downloads) short of a reformat and fresh xp installation - which
I cant believe to be the only fix.

This seems to be happening to me on *** s, as I got a cheapy free one
in a promotion that did the same thing. I decided to buy a microsoft
one and thought i wouldnt see the same problem, but no luck. Can
anyone give a definitive answer on this? Has anyone seen this on a
lifecam install?

Im on windows XP SP2.


1. Microsoft lifecam vx-3000 windows logo testing failure

2. Microsoft LifeCam VX-3000 does not Install : (


I'm running Windows-XP Pro (SP2) on a Pentium-/ 3.20GHz
1.00GB of RAM, and I can't install a Microsoft LifeCam VX-3000 that I
just purchased.

Following the Microsoft camera instructions I installed first the
driver and software, then when I plug the camera (USB) Windows
recognizse it but it display a message saying "a problem occurs when
installing the hardware". I check looking at the Device Manager and
there is a yellow exclamation mark on the Imaging Devices Microsoft
Lifecam icon.

I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling the camera, running the
camera software update, trying different USB ports, checking that
all the USB ports are correctly set on the mother board BIOS, etc.

Funny thing is that I have installed a friend of mine Logitech ***
with no problems, before buying this new Microsoft, and now I don't
know what to do.

I have removed all the "old" Logitech drivers and software before
installing the LifeCam, and I have also cleaned the registry removing
all the Logitech keys and files.

I'll appreciate any help relating this matter.

Thanks in advance,
