How do I hook up a USB video cam in my truck? Answered
I have a IBM ThinkPad Ultra Port 2 Cam 2 "02K5152" That I want to hook up in my truck but my problem is getting the right power to and at the same time record straight into a video camera so I can keep a live feed going when I need it to. I guess it would be a lot like in a cop car where I can turn it on and off with a switch. I was thinking about getting a USB hub but I still need a way to get the power to it.
Is there anyone who could draw up a scamatic so a novice can read it please. It would be of great great help to me to get this going.
I have a lot of xtra USB ports from old pc's that I thought about putting together a USB hub my self but I don't know where and what resisters to use because I havent gotten up to speed on them as fast as I wanted to so im still in the R&R stage area on that.
I took some pic's of the cam so you can see it and im wanting to put it in a 1995 Chevy truck.
Also it will need to be removeable quick and easy because of the cold temps of winter and thiefs if you know what I mean.
Thanks for any help in advance. I really love this site.
