    USB\Vid_06a2&Pid_0003 matches a Topro USB webcam. The last model with it is a "Ixium Eye Webcam".

    Ahhh, now I understand your error. The web site link works but when one clicks on any of the driver download links on the site it fails with File or Directory not found

    @Mistar Angler
    HERE's a driver to a Topro webcam with the ID you reported. However, it's an old driver (and I think it's also an old webcam) so this driver might only work with XP. I don't know.... but worth a try

    Create a system restore point first before you try the driver (just in case). Unzip the download file to your Desktop then run Setup.exe.

    Hi:

    Thank you for the information you provided...

    I've have a webcam. The only info I could find on it was Microsoft. Couldn't find a driver for it on Microsoft.com.Following your info I could find the ID: USB\VID_045E&PID_00F7&MI_00\6&1B843395&0&0000
    However nothing when I tried Google & Yahoo.
    Even though I'm going to go back to Microsoft.com to see with this info if I could find the driver.
    Would appreciate any help.

    Might you be using a Microsoft LifeCam VX-1000?

    /* Edit */
    I'll save you the extra step.... Your Hardware ID makes me think you have a Microsoft LifeCam VX-1000. Find its drivers HERE

    Hello

    I followed carefully your guide in the hopes of finding the driver I'm looking for, however I couldn't find it even after 2 long days of insane googling/yahooing. I'v got to say that my searching skills aren't the best but I'v seen my hopes renewed while I was reading this thread. Going straight to the point: at the moment I have 2 webcams that simply dont work because I seam to be missing a driver known as " VGA single chip ". I looked for him everywhere, but he hides better than Bin Laden. I let you with the IDs:

    USB\VID_093A&PID_2600&REV_0100
    USB\VID_093A&PID_2600
    I wish you can turn this out into a successful story too,
    Thanks in advance!

    The USB\VID_093A&PID_2600 is a Samsung PLEOMAX PWC-2000, so you can try the driver for that.
    It uses a PAC7311 single chip camera from Pixart.

    go to this website http://driversdownloadnow.com/Slim/drivers/You will first need to install this program. Once the program has downloaded. Plug in your webcam to your system. Run the slim driver program. The driver program will discover your necessary driver for your new webcam. Follow the directions given after downloading the chosen driver for your webcam. Cheers!

    The webcam is a ViMicro based webcam. But there are many manufacturers that use ViMicro webcam components, so best thing is to use the driver from the manufacturer instead of the generic one(s).
    Driversdown is nothing more than a DriverDetective affiliate, so if you want to use that utility, better to to the software vendor website: drivershq.com

    The suggested website is HIGHLY effective in sorting out (and installing) driver issues. Obviously the most recent respondent has never either been on the website or experienced using the product. I stand by my recommendation.

    @BillAllen55 - I have used DriverDetective (and checked many other products like it) since long, so I definitely know what I am talking about. But it is about the product and not about the website, and DriversHQ is the original owner of the DriverDetective product, so that is where I would get the software from.

    The mentioned website requires a payment from the user. What I like about slim drivers is that all driver downloads are free. I apologize if you misunderstood my post. I wasn't providing negative feedback about a Driver Detective website. What I'm saying is that for a FREE website (slim drivers) it is the best resource when contrasting a free website to a user pay website. (Driver Detective)

    Thanks for clarifying, but when I follow the link in your post, the only download I see is an installer for DriverDetective.exe. So how do users actually access free drivers on that site without using the program?
    Even the Slim Driver Installer link results in a download of DriverDetective, which you still need to buy if you want access to their drivers.
