Have you used the QuickCam in bi-directional mode?  What's involved, 
and how does it work?  Neither of my ports are bi-directional, and I 
can't test it.  I've got an ASUS P55TP4XE here that I'll be putting in 
my system, hopefully later this week, but until then I'm stuck with 
uni-directional ports.

I assume there's some command to set bi-directional mode in the camera, 
and then full bytes are read from the data port, with a similar 
handshaking protocol?
