Re: Is this pearl camera broken

I believe it was plugged into a USB2 port. There's no real way to tell em apart though.
At least I got it for free so I didn't lose anything.

This is not much of an issue nowadays, but make sure it is plugged into a USB 2.0 port, as it gets power from the USB port.
i used to have a Pearl camera at work, and we had this problem until we read the docs and realized that the camera derives power from the USB port.

It sounds as though the camera is, as your subject line speculates, broken. In my recollection, there is nothing to install except that Openbook should be installed before you connect it.

I aquired a pearl camera today. However, when I unfolded the thing and plugged it in, I got no new hardware sound from windows. And openbook does not see it. Is there something special that needs to be done to get this thing working? Running windows 10 and openbook 9.
