Windows 7: Two Devices (Webcams-same product) with only One Driver

Two Devices (Webcams-same product) with only One Driver

Hello

So I have two webcams which are the same product (PlayStation Eye) which I have installed the drivers for. One works perfectly but connecting the second will not do anything (power gets to it as the lights on the camera come on, but the driver is obviously conflicting with it).

In Device Manager:

(In Regedit I can rename them to Camera 1, Camera 2 etc. later at least)

After checking details in Device Manager and Regedit, both are separated by IDs and listed separately:



So basically, is there no way to separately install drivers for each one (make two separate installs for both cameras)? For example C:\Camera 1\Drivers\ and C:\Camera 2\Drivers\

Thanks for any help.
