There isn't a much hardware to install that is as easy to setup as a web cam. The first thing you must do is to make sure you read the instructions. All of the hardware's drivers are on the CD's that come in the box, it is a very simple setup that takes little over five minutes to complete. Once the drivers are installed you are then told that you can attach the camera to your USB port...after that everything is just about complete and you are almost ready to use the web cam straight away.
