Webcam Problem....Device Manager Sees it as a USB Video Device

Seriously if I knew this was the story - wouldn't have gotten a brand new webcam today. But so here it is - Livecam VX800 - uninstalled, reinstalled - and as a plug and play install for *New Hardware* (XP) is not recognizing it as a webcam - but as *USB Audio Device* Then when I check it in Device Manager under Imaging Devices, it's a *USB video device*.

I can't install the drivers because they're not getting installed in System32 or in Drivers. When I downloaded the driver software - 4x - and installing it - it shows up as *NO CAMERA DETECTED ON THIS COMPUTER*.
The webcam itself works in Skype and another application. All XP updates, etc. have been installed. Just as a side note - I actually thought my other webcam was broken because I got the same exact message so I just went out and got another webcam (both Microsoft) I didn't think for a second it could be some kind of hardware/software conflict. Now there are 2 cameras that aren't working the way they should. :/
Anyone help? Thank you!
