I've had this happen before, too. Make sure CU is closed first, then edit
the ini file by hand:

Start/Run/Notepad c:\windows\cuseeme.ini

Find the [Capture Settings] section and change the 1 in
"CaptureDeviceIndex=3D1" to a zero, or vice-versa. Save the changes.
Restart CU.

The CaptureDeviceIndex is a number which should correspond with the
"msvideo=3D" line in the [drivers] section of the system.ini file for the
driver you want to use. For example:


CaptureDeviceIndex of 0 (zero) would be for my Videologic Capticator card.
1 would be for CUDOODLE, and 2 would be for the quickcam.
