Hey guys, i have been faced with yet another problem. I have a webcam that is made by Belkin but the internal sensors, circuits etc are by Philips Semiconducter. I have installed the drivers fro this camera on my PC but i cant see the icon for it in the My Computer window. Why is this? Earlier i had a logitech camera and it had an icon in My Computer under "Scanners and Cameras". What can i do? I hate this Logitech company - they think they have a monopoly in the WebCam market and this stoopid company in Redmond called Microsoft has customised everything according to Logitech it seems. Anywsys, no sense cribbing - a solution would be a better option. Thanks in advance guys.

Look for it in programme files, right click the icon, click create shortcut which should place it on the desktop

nah. That isn't going to work. All the drivers are .dll, .inf, .sys and .ini files. A shortcut wouldnt do any good. I want a link in My Computer.

Re-install it, see if there is a complete option

If it doesn't show in all programmes and isn't operated by controls on the camera, ask Belkin
