Can't lock onto webcam in VmWare

I have Vmware-server installed,set up Win-2000 in a virtual disk and the USB is mounted. installing Creatives software every thing goes well until I must connect the cam, no go! It says none is present. It works fine in win-2000 on a virtualBox disk. Could the problem be because Virtual box is present? Don’t know just asking.
To have USB support for virtual box I have the line; none /proc/bus/usb etc. etc. I removed that line and changed the line “usbfs /proc/bus/usb usbfs noauto 0 0” to “auto” to see if this would help, it did not! What’s up? anybody!
Note: I have Virtualbox shut down when doing this.
