Wiring for NXT - Cam NXT-Cam may be connected to any of the sensor ports of NXT using standard USB NXT-connector interface  cable.  In your program, select the  appropriate port number  to which the NXT-Cam is connected.  When connecting the NXT-cam to PC, use proper USB cable to interface NXT-cam with NXT-cam View  software. WARNING: Do not connect the NXT - Cam to any motor port, as the voltage is applied by the motor port from  the NXT - Brick may damage the electronics of the NXT - Cam. 2.

Now that you have connected to a serial port just hit the connect button to begin interfacing with the NXT – Cam hardware (camera).
