    Skype and MS Lifecam HD-3000

    I just picked up a Microsoft LifeCam HD-3000 to go with my new system and cannot seem to get any video to work.

    When I plug in the device, Skype recognizes it and directs me to the configuration screen - instead of seeing myself in the video frame, I just see a spinning wheel as if it is try to do something.

    I have downloaded the latest driver from MS for this device.

    Is there something I am missing, or could this device be DOA?
