has seen it before.
I am trying to run a USB2.0 camera through a PCcard (PCMCIA) USB2.0
adapter card. The camera software does not see the camera; claims it
is not attached. When I probe the camera with the Windows Device Manager
I get "This device cannot start. (Code 10)" error message.
I get the same error on both the new Orion Star Shoot Solar System Imager
and a new Lumenera SKYnyx. I've never had any trouble with the old
ToUcam (which is USB1.1)
Computer is an IBM ThinkPad (stop laughing!). It does not have a
native USB2.0 port, so I am running it with a PCMCIA USB2.0 adapter card.
The adapter card works great on everything else -- disk drives, printers,
iPod, etc. Other details: 2.00GHz processor, 1 GB memory, tons of free
disk space. System software is fully up-to-date (Win XP Pro SP2).
I noted that the drivers for neither camera are "digitally signed"
by MicroSoft. The camera manuals claim it does not matter, though
Windows complains about it and makes it sound like a serious problem.
I've tried everything I can think of... uninstalling / re-installing
device drivers, manual driver installs, etc.
Is anyone successfully running a laptop + PCMCIA USB2 card? Time for a
new computer? Any advice would be much appreciated!
