Question

Keyboard identified as imaging device

I just bought a cheap knockoff mechanical keyboard (Rottay with brown switches). It's plug and play, it did not come with any software. It works perfectly fine on every computer, but on mine it identifies as an 'imaging device' and as a camera. When I try to update drivers, it wants to get drivers for something called 'easy camera'. I've tried uninstalling those drivers, uninstalling that 'device', rebooting, deleting drivers (etc). How do I get my computer to correctly identify this thing?

Clarification Request
Did you install their driver?

no drivers provided

NO drivers were provided. It's plug and play. When I e-mailed company, they said this:

Thank you for your kindly letter and we are always here for help.
This keyboard do not need drive, so i think you can try click the "imaging device" and update the device as the computer's instructions, it may take several minutes. or if you computer have another usb port you can try that one. and if that also can not solve the problem, you can try update the USB drive on you computer.
Any further questions you meet , please feel free to contact us and we will help you until the problem be solved.
Sincerely,
Rottay Service Team

That's true except

There are other devices in that keyboard so I'm trying to avoid a trip to the registry or such. Try their driver and then reboot and re-test.

Answer
Same problem with a Rottay RGB keyboard

did you find a fix for this? I hate to go through a return process as i kindof like this keyboard when it does work. haha

Mine will work for about an hour and a half until my computer happens to recognize this as an imiaging device [camera] and then it stops working completely until i delete the drivers and plug and unplug it back in. Only seems to be giving me a temporary fix tho.

Answer
A Fix

Just had the same problem.

Fixed by right clicking on the Imaging Device in the device manager - click on properties.
Go to the Driver Tab Click "Update Driver"
Click Browse This Computer then click Let me pick from a list.
Select "Input Device" and then next. It should start working then.
