Windows 7: Lifecam Cinema USB Problem

Lifecam Cinema USB Problem

I have 6 lifecam cinemas I would like to be able to use at the same time on one computer. I only need a frame rate of 1 fps, so I think the USB bandwidth limitations should not be a problem. However, it seems like the drivers request the maximum USB bandwidth no matter the settings. I have tried every resolution and frame rate, in multiple programs, it always requests 48% of the USB bandwidth of one controller (therefore, only two will work at a time). I am wondering if there is a way to get the camera to not reserve the maximum possible bandwidth and only request what it needs. Google-ing this only comes up with workarounds on linux, but I want this to work on windows.

If I must buy more controllers, could someone make some recommendations? Would a usb 3.0 pci card be a better option than a 2.0 pci card? If the 3.0 has 10x higher bandwidth, will one camera take up 4.8% instead of 48%? Or does it not work like that.
