Remove a device or driver assigned to the wrong USB port
I purchased a webcam (Gear Head model WCF2600HDBLU) and installed it before reading the instructions (yea I'm a guy). The current drivers were downloaded from the web (or maybe are Windows drivers). Well when I tried to use the webcam in another USB port it says "Device not recognized". The device does work properly in the first USB port.
Read the directions and it say "WARNING! Do not connect you USB camera to another port once the driver is installed. The driver will not be able to detect the device once switched to another port".
I've tried installing the webcam in the USB port I want to use by using the install disk with no luck.
I've tried to Disable the device, uninstall the device and uninstall the driver. No Luck.
Of course Restore would work IF I have a restore point prior to the webcam install. I Don't. Yes I accept my 40 lashes.
Windows 7 Home Premium, 64-bit.
Any ideas and Thanks
