    Hello,

    I've got an old webcam with the hardware ID above. The PC uses Microsoft Windows XP and I downloaded the zip file from the previous post (from 2010) and ran the executable to install but the PC has still not found the driver. Can you please advise what I need to do to get the driver installed?

    What Service Pack (SP) level do you have installed? Plug in your webcam then
    List any Problem devices
    • Make sure devices are connected and powered on
    • Click Start->Run, enter: msinfo32. Click the + sign next to Components to expand it
    • Click Problem Devices. Anything appear?
    • If yes, click on it, Ctrl-A to select all, Ctrl-C to copy it, Ctrl-V to paste into next post
    • On the other hand, if no devices are listed, tell me so
    Also see How To Report Your Computer's Device Manager Data. When you save the file to disk, be sure you SAVE AS Tab Delimited Text so I can take a look
