OK, here's the whole speil. Got a LogitechQuickcam pro 9000 (version 11.8 software) Ive installed several times, and uninstalled several times. I've even done several clean installs, updated direct x and windows vista business. When i try to use the camera, the image comes through very choppy with a couple lines. Ive tried different USB ports, and Different cameras (ihave more then one of these adn the other one works fine on the other pc) When I try to record using the camera, it freezes. Not the PC, but the camera itself, it doesnt capture image or sound. Though i can take still pictures just fine.

Some times the pc says there is no camera detected, i reconnect in a different usb, and bingo, it says there's a camera, but still not able to do much.

I have found that when using the camera with Yahoo Messenger, it works a bit better then just trying to recrod a video with the Quickcam program. I can send video just fine while live streaming via yahoo, but I still cant record or save any video when just using the program itself.

The computer runs just fine with any other program, but for some reason, not this, I've been on logitechs site with no luck, and i've been on the phone with logitech themselves, and they just had me repeat everything i've already done. Going to call them again on Monday to see if they can give anymore help. I'm really perplexed at this one!

Have you tried giving the process that runs the camera "High Priority" or "Realtime?" Start the task manager (Alt-Ctl-Delete) and change the priority of the camera process. See what happens.
