I have this camera and am trying to install it on a new Laptop (Windows XP), but I've lost the CD. I've searched the net for drivers etc. and found what seemed to be the correct one at Driverguide but its not worked. What should I do? Recognises it as new hardware but it won't recognise it as a camera...

Oh..err... I thought it was taken that I'd tried that. theres no markings or serial on the camera, but on my old PC it was called PC Camera (602a VGA) tried the site of VGA but no drivers or anything for webcams. A google search turned up a different problem but it said that its not well supported. If it helps, i have the drivers installed on another pc (windows 200 this time) but i don't know how to go aout copying them...

you could copy your entire drivers folder from that pc and then when you go to install the drivers for the camera point it to look in that location and see if it picks it up

see if there is an fcc id on the camera. you should be able to look up who made the camera on fcc.gov

now you could get a new camera. anywhere from 10$ to 80. last one I had was a $15.00 one that came with great software and worked with any camera. infact the camerea was as good as a logitech one.

what os are you on and is the camera usb?
