Some of my friends bought USB Quickcams and had absloutely nothing but
problems with them. I Finally got fed up with fighting with W95 and went
ahead and Installed a pre release ver of W98 on their machines to see if I
could get the cams to work. After getting a updated driver from Connectix
they have had smooth sailing with the USB Cams.
