New hardware problem


I use rh9. Now i have new usb flush memory, new camera and one more video card. I insert them to my pc already but my pc doesn't recognise them. What should i do ?

In WinXp there is the hardware wizard where i can install new hardware. Is there the same thing in rh9 ?

If not, pls show me how to do ?

Thank you

Use xpcgear5un2 for a coupon code for 8 bucks off.

Good luck.

You need to install usb-hotplug which has some dependencies associated with it as I recall.

I assume you mean it only has two USB ports. And certainly you don't want
to use four USB webcams.

It is easier to buy a 4-port USB hub which will give you 3 more USB ports, since
you will plug it into one of your existing ports. CompUSA has one for less than $9, and
you won't need a driver or anything. Just plug it in and go. It will only give you the
USB 1.1 speed of 12Mbps rather than USB 2.0 speed of 480Mbps, but this should not
matter for an USB camera.
