I have this webcam, not sure of the manufacturer, or anything like that.. I dont have the installation cd any longer.. was hoping someone could help me find the driver for it... that is compatible with Windows XP Home... the only thing I found was this...
http://english.crs.c...nc=detail&id=27

And the drivers there don't even work, the picture there is exactly like the camera I have, yet I can't find a driver for it...

I run windows xp home edition. inside the camera I found the following text.

RD1027
PC-10C
REV:B

Thats all I could gather..

Someone please help me fix this..

Thanks in advance.

Have you tried plugging the webcam in and see if Windows will detect it during bootup? Don't know if XP will have a generic driver for the web cam. You may have to go to Control Panel Install New Hardware utility provided by Win XP to get this to work.

I don't use XP so can't provide exact steps for you. I use Win ME and have had no problems. It has actually surprised me the number of problems that Win XP has generated.

I would have thought a generic driver would have worked. Noticed you left a comment on the page where you found the camera.

Do you have a scanner or photo app install cd that might have a way to detect the web cam? Mine did and I didn't need to use the cd for the camera itself. Just an idea.

You might try to use another webcam driver to see if it will work. Possibly LogiTech's QuickCam driver might work. Or try searching at DriverGuide.com.

I've tried rebooting with it plugged in, still no luck
Under the deivce manager it reads as USB Camera, with the yellow "?" next to it, I haven't tried the hardware utility under control panel though.. not sure if it will work.. if you or anyone else has any more information regarding, helping me getting this thing to work, please let me know.

Try the hardware utility first and if it doesn't work, maybe I can e-mail you the driver I use for my Webcam as an attachment. PM with e-mail address should you want to go that route. Will use the online e-mail service that I have bookmarked for sending large attachments :
