    Hi rasmorph

    Thanks for your post! It helped me realize an easy mistake to avoid when looking for web cams drivers. Expecially for XP where one can't simply copy/paste IDs. (And now i'll have to update the Guide)

    fyi.. When you look at your web cam Hardware ID, it includes the number "zero" but not the letter "O". You mistook one of the zeroes as the letter "O"

    Code:
    You posted [I](and must have looked for):[/I]
    USB\VID_[B]O[/B]C45&PID_6025\5&20C4C733&0&3
    
    It is actually 
    USB\VID_[B]0[/B]C45&PID_6025\5&20C4C733&0&3
    
    Note the one character in [B]boldface[/B] is a zero and not the letter "O"
    
    (the zero and "O" can even look the same in certain fonts - like above!)

    Try THIS LINK. Unzip to your Desktop and run the executable
