All help appreciated

Something that may or may not work but I am assuming you have probably tried this. Plugging it into another USB port.

Yes doesn't matter which port I plug it into, XP recognises it s a USB web cam, starts the hardware wizard but fails to install as it cannot find a driver.

I know this is for Windows 7 but none of my PC's have XP any more so I cannot check it's relevance to that OS. This.
