I just bought this little VGA USB 2.0 Web Cam and it comes with a driver and software CD. I thought I had installed everything but when I try to use it it tells me "sorry, you have no video capture hardware" Does this mean my brand new laptop isn't webcam "ready"????Or something is up with this webcam. Any help would help!
