Answers To Your Questions

Question 27 February 2003

I want to buy a web camera, but have a problem. It seems that all the cameras I look at require a USB connection. My computer is an older one and I don't have a USB connection. Does this mean that I need a new computer.  Any help would be appreciated.

Regards

Robert  

 

Answer

Robert,

You probably don't need a new computer. If your present system meets the System Requirements (normally printed on the camera box) you should be able to get by with simply adding a USB  card to your computer. This is a card that fits in your computer and would give you USB ports. Should probably cost less than $70.00. On the bright side you should be able to get a USB2 card which gives a faster data transfer than the USB ports existing on most computers. The installation is not difficult but if you are unsure you can have the job done for a reasonable price.
