    I'm using this same model webcam (CNMU183ASA) I got it to work on a laptop running Windows 10.USB cable ----Camera wiring Black------------BlackGreen-----------WhiteWhite-----------GreenRed-------------Orange (looks tan to me)-------------------Red - Unused-------------------Brown - UnusedFor the VCC (V+) it seems that Orange and Brown might be interchangeable, but I have not fully tested that yet.Now I want to see if I can get the mic to work.

    I got that message when I had the data wires reversed. anyone else getting this same error message, try switching the data wires.
