Hi again guys
Well, I'm starting to replace some lagacy hardware, since some of it won't work even on a VM... I started with my old webcam (the Logitech oldie XD) that was inherited to my mom's PC (that uses Windows 2000, she's so happy with it XD)... then I bought lil' but nice webcam, which is generic I guess (Just supported by some site called PixArt.com.tw... with model PAC7302) has integrated microphone and goes pretty nice... except for one thing...
Whenever I try to use it with Arcsoft Webcam Companion 3 with the microphone that is integrated with the cam, a message pops out telling me that USB bandwitdh was exceeded, looking at the advice, seems that my keyboard uses 3% (a wired 600 USB keyboard from Microsoft) the video camera uses 70% and adding audion from it adds another 8%... with the 10% alocated by the system gives 91% (still has bandwitdh... but meh...) I tried many solutions including reintalling drivers
, but still have this issue.
Reading over google, I found that this can be either a power issue (USB not giving enough power for this thus giving this message) or that my four USB ports use the same hub to give bandwitdh, thus not allowing me to use the camera's microphone...
My best workaround by now was to use my other mic integrated to my monitor, wich is an standard mic (no USB), but sounds awful XD...
Wondering if this has something to do with power or bandwidth, I'm thinking on purchasing an AC-Powred USB hub (with its own "power supply")... but here comes my question: If I connect this to my rear USB ports (whichever...) will this thing get its own bandwidth regardless of the current my USB's are using currently?
My mobo is a PC Chips A13G+ v3.0, has 4 USB in the rear panel... and nothing else (I couldn't find replacements to connect the frontal USB ports
) and seing the device mannager in the USB part gives what you see in the pic I attach... (Sorry, spanish, but I leave a translation below)
I would like to know exactly which are this devices that are listed specifically, since, in my laptop I got more than one or two of this... for example:
- Root USB hub (Concentrador de Raíz USB) Is this the main USB controller? some say that if there are two, then one uses USB 2.0 and the other 1.1... is that true?
it seems so since my Flash USB stcks are only recognized in one of this things... and all are USB 2.0
- Enhaced PCI to USB host controller (Controlador de host de PCI a USB Mejorado)... Which one is this? Here it has 20% of bandwidth reserved for system and nothing connected to it, in my laptop, has attached the integrated webcamera...
- Standard USB OpenHCD host controller (Controladora de host USB OpenHCD estandar)... here I find whichever device is connected to my USB ports... my keyboard, the camera... but the flash USB sticks...
Ignore the USB composite device (dispositivo compuesto USB) and the Generic USB Hub... this last is a self powered hub that I rarely use... and the first in my Microsoft keyboard.
I'm really confused with this :S
Thanks in advance for your help guys
