    Hey, I'm running El Capitain and have been using this webcam for years...

    Nothin special but does what I need. Anyhow, I installed bootcamp and it no longer works. It is showing up in system report as the following:

    Vimicro USB 2.0 PC Camera (Venus):

    Product ID: 0x3420

    Vendor ID: 0x0ac8 (Z-Star Microelectronics Corporation)

    Version: 1.00

    Speed: Up to 480 Mb/sec

    Manufacturer: Vimicro

    Location ID: 0xfd530000 / 6

    Current Available (mA): 1000

    Current Required (mA): 256

    Extra Operating Current (mA): 0

    I tried going into bootcamp to uninstall the driver but it didn't seem to help and macally support has been unresponsive. Any thoughts on how I could troubleshoot this?
