Windows 7: 2 webcams, same make, model and mostly same NAME!

2 webcams, same make, model and mostly same NAME!

Hi,

I'm trying to acces 2 webcams at the same time, both are "Microsoft LifeCam VX-2000" but they're listed under the same name which makes it impossible, only one turns on. I've read somewhere that XP used to append a number to identical devices to avoid this kind of problem.. Anybody knows a workaround?

sorry if there's something wrong with my post, I'm new to the forum.

thanks
