Post subject:  PS Eye Recognition Issue

Hey, I've been planning to MoCap for a while now and I've prepared my computer for such an occasion by purchasing three PS Eye cameras, a PCI USB 3.0 card to manage the multiple cameras and rearranged my living room for the capture, however when I come to selecting cameras for recording on IPI Recorder, the program only identifies two of the three cameras. The third appears to not be receiving power whatsoever.

I have searched across the web to try and understand this issue. I have switched which camera is plugged into which USB slot, I have ensured that only a maximum of two of the cameras is controlled by one USB manager and I have restarted multiple times with no luck. The blue light on the camera fails to light up at all whereas the other two function perfectly.

I know for a fact thta the cameras are functional with USB 3.0 due to 3.0's backwards compatibility with 2.0. I have also tested prior to purchasing a second PCI USB manager and although the single manager's bandwidth was too small to cope with all three, all cameras were still partially functional with the third dropping in frames as per usual. This is both frustrating as well as inconvenient and I am hoping you guys can help me.

P.S: I would also very much appreciate it if someone could link me to a PS Eye calibration tutorial video, as I am utterly hopeless when it comes to reading instructions and following pictures. Thanks in advance!

However, there are compatibility issues between PS Eye and some USB 3.0 chipsets.
What is the model of USB 3.0 PCI card you've got? Or at least how it is displayed in the Device Manager (provide a screenshot)?
