I am not in the habit of posting negativity on any forum (in fact this is the first time I have done this) but after an infurating two days trying to find the cause of non working usb midi devices, I have to make my feelings known.
the damned driver listed above IS the cause of this problem, and I feel Logitech should accept responsibilty for this and at least provide a fix that doesnt involve going through the registry with an axe.
This problem is also compounded by the fact that my particular Logitech webcam is built in to my laptop (its a dell) and I see a general washing of hands here when it comes to that.
I have looked at the threads (and there are a lot of them!) about this problem but I dont actually see anyone from Logitech providing a definitive, easy to follow answer to a known problem! The least that could be done is to provide a sticky about this.
Why the hell should I have to make a choice between using my USB midi devices and my webcam??????????
Please please please will someone restore my faith in human nature and provide me with a workable solution to this (and dont tell me there are too many hardware configs to provide one- the damned (one!) driver has screwed up enough systems as it is)

"Bought in" stuff, hardware and software, is a common cause of grief. Both parties to the transition just love passing the buck.
Scanner makers, for example, often bundle software from people like Nuance, who then tell users to talk to the hardware maker. Sometimes, the final vendor really does a reasonable job of supporting thing. Visioneer, for example, isn't bad on that front.
While you have every reason to moan about Logitech, you should also pursue this issue at the Dell end. They are the people who created this combination. They will know more about the entrails of your PC than Logitech can hope to guess. So Dell should be more up on clashes between bits of kit that it cobbled together.
The other reason for chasing Dell is that they can shout louder at Logitech. If there are enough people like you with complaints, maybe Dell will go somewhere else when it next wants to pay a few cents for a webcam.
That bit, the few cents, I'm afraid, partly explains why Logitech doesn't leap into action. Dell screws it to the floor on price, removing any incentive to deliver decent support.
Is there a Dell support forum like this where you can pose your problem? You might have more luck there.
By the way, a Google search on "LvUSBSta.sys dell laptop" throws up various links. You are not alone. Maybe someone out there has a magic wand.
