Yesterday I received in my country (Uruguay) 2 Quickcams
coming from Cyberian Outpost, the delivery was really fast!
I ordered last 8 March and the price was US$ 100 each one...

When arrived I start to test if they worked, the first I unpacked
works pretty well but the other brings me the following message
when I load Qmovie: 'QuickCam not plugged in, driver in use by
another application, or parallel port in use by another device' it
doesn't display any video...

The facts are that the camera doesn't work... is not a problem
of my machine (parallel or keyboard port) since the other camera
works fine, my nickname is SodA so maybe you already had have
a CuSeeMe session with me 8)

I've sent mail to Cyberian, but I post a little mail here because maybe
one of you knows whats going on, or maybe have this annoying message
before and knows how to fix it... I checked the connections and everything
is fine connected...

Bring up the cameras to my country costs me about US$ 100 and now
I don't know what would happen with the camera... what kind of support
is supposed to be applied in this cases?...

To send the broked camera cost me around US$ 50, and to get into
my country again costs me around US$ 100 again... 8(

Well, sorry for this mail... but I think that maybe some of you could
have this problem before... thanks a lot to everybody!!!
