OS: Windows 8.1
Device: Microsoft Life Cam HD-3000
Was working perfectly for 6 months or more. Not sure what event triggered it not working but system stopped recognising device. All other USB devices work.
Camera works in all other computers tested.
Device Manager reports device as Unknown.
Update driver - completes and shows Device is recognised - but device does not show up in WebCam enabled apps. Unplug and reconnect and device is again reported as unknown.
Go back to Device Manager - and look at properties for WebCam the following message is displayed.
After installation DM reports
"This device is not configured correctly (Code 1)"
With "Access Denied" under it.
After reconnecting the message changes to
"The drivers for this device are not properly installed (Code 28)"
Repeating the above does nothing.
Have also tried deleting the USB UpperFilters and LowerFilters - also no joy.
