I may be wrong, but as I can understand from original message, its
author connected his A/B switch to wrong place. It must be:

[PC]----[A/B]-----[Zip]----[Printer]
!
+-------[QuickCam]

While the original configuration (as I can suppose from letter) is:

[PC]-----[Zip]----[A/B]-----[Printer]
!
+-------[QuickCam]

If so, then A/B switch should be connected to PC directly,
not via Zip drive. Sorry again if I am in misunderstanding.
English is not my native language. Also, I already deleted
the original message, so can't to send this by private mail.
