Check to see if USB is sharing it's IRQ with another device. The lucent card should be sharing its IRQ with the onboard USB. Read the card installation tips here in Problem Solver.
If the setup is correct the problem may be the system.
A 166 P1 can barely sustain 1 host controller the addition of 4 more could consume more system resources than you have available.
: I purchase a Creative PC-CAM 300 and a SIIG Quadpro USB port. The SIIG has a Agere (Lucent) USS-344 USB controller. I can install the port with no problem, the computer recognizes it, ask for the WIN_98SE disk to download the driver, etc. When I install the camera, the same, the computer recognizes it, ask for the driver, etc. However, the computer can not read the pictures. I know the camera is working because I installed it in another computer and it worked fine. I exchange the USB port card by a new one and I assume that it is also working. The symptons didn't change.
: When I check the device manager the USB port looks fine, the problem is with the camera that has a yellow circle and a mark. When I check properties the error code is 10.
: I already found the new driver for the camera, patches for the USB port driver, checked the interruptions and I don't see any conflict, tried ideas from USBMAN.COM , turned off the BIOS power managment, uninstalled the drivers using the safe mode and reinstalled, etc., etc.
: My motherboard is a Intel VS440FX with a Pentium-PRO 180 MHz. It doesn't have a build in USB port. I upgraded the BIOS.
: Some suggestion of what to try next?
