I've never used the creative webcam 2, but the symptoms sound similar. I
assume you're using the freeware Cornell version from what it sounds like.
Try View -> Preferences -> Video -> Video Format and selecting either an 8
or 16-bit format (RGB8 works on the Winnov Videum I'm using while RGB15
works on the STB TV/PCI card I have)

Enhanced CU 3.X supposedly supports more capture card formats if you want
to mess with it...
