Hope this helps - I lifted it from my Epinions comment.
It definitely works better under 98SE.
With that said, get the 2000/XP drivers at http://www.compgeeks.com/drivers/JamCam3.exe, and the XP software update from http://www.compgeeks.com/drivers/JCAM3FUD.exe.
More information is also available at http://www.noslogan.com/Various/KBGear.html.
Instructions (taken from "K Mack" at driverforum.com) follow - NOTE: I was able to skip step 3, the "compatibility" check, and still get good results. It doesn't seem to be necessary.
Here are the complete instructions for correctly installing the USB driver update (JamCam left off a couple of critical steps!):
1. Make sure youíve set up your folder view properties to view file extensions for known file types. From within any folder,
a. Select Tools, Folder Options
b. Click on the View tab
c. Under Advanced Settings, de-select Hide extensions for known file types.
d. Click Apply to all folders, then OK.
2. Download both of the XP update files from jamonline.com
3. Make sure the downloaded zipped JamCam update files arenít set for backwards compatibility (I think this is what was causing my problem):
a. Right click on file.
b. Select Properties.
c. Choose Compatibility tab.
d. De-select ďRun this program in compatibility mode for:Ē
e. Click OK, and then repeat for the other file.
4. Install JamCam 3.0 software from CD.
5. Donít reboot.
6. Install the JamCam 3.0 XP update.
7. Install the JamCam XP driver update.
8. Find the folder named cabs on C: (C:\cabs).
9. Right-click on kbcam.inf and select Install.
10. Close the window.
11. Connect your camera to a USB port and turn it on.
12. Right click on My Computer and select Properties.
13. Go to the Hardware tab and select Device Manager.
14. You should see JamCam listed there.
15. Double-click on JamCam in the device list.
16. Go to the Driver tab.
17. Select Update Driver button.
18. Select Install from specific location.
19. Point to C:\cabs.
20. It should find kbcam.sys, if not, choose Browse and reselect C:\cabs.
21. If you get a dialog box stating that the driver isnít digitally signed by XP, click on continue installation anyway.
Hope this comment is helpful to some...
