  1. I recently had to re-install windows, and therefore had to re-instal my webcam. It worked fine before but now won't work:mad: .

    The model is: Maxim Digital Camera MX30-50, my windows OS is Windows98

    It can be used as a webcam and also as a camera.
    I can take photos with it and upload them no problem.. but when I use the webcam (and i have tried it with various programs that i've used before with it), it simply doesnt load. It freezes whatever application I tried to run it in.

    When I run in the application "PCCam" I get the error that it cannot run preview graph. I've tried reinstalling the software and the driver multiple times but still no result.

    Any ideas to get it running would be appreciated, thank you in advance
    :)

    edit: also forgot to say it is a USB Camera.. but I do know that the USB cable is working because I can get photos from it
