  1. Hi,

    I lost my driver CD for my webcam and I formatted my Harddrive. Now when I connect my webcam all it displays in Device Manager is CIF Single Chip with a yellow question mark. I need a free driver(exe file) to install my webcam and make it work with Windows Live. My operating system is Windows XP and the processor is Pentium 4, 1.7Mhz. with USB 1.1 ports.

    Mario

    Thanks

    Hi,

    I got the threads and have sorted out the issue to some extent. The webcam works with video streaming but with still images I have not been able to do much. I basically wanted the webcam to work Windows Live Messenger and to that extent I was successful. Thanks.

    Mario.
