    1. So when you connect the USB port you hear the Windows "ding-dong" to indicate the hardware detects device connection?
    2. What do you mean by the CD "doesn't work"?

    • Make sure the web cam is connected to USB port 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
