    Oh that's just ez388xp.exe
    I actually found the info in this: https://www.techspot.com/vb/topic107943.html
    But the download seems to have stopped

    Anyway, I uploaded it here for you: http://rapidshare.com/files/315121418/ez388xp.zip.html
    Or just do a google search, I originally found ez388xp.exe freely at DriverGuide (free membership required).

    Let me know if it works :)

    all my friends


    Hi friends..
    Can any one help me please. I have a webcam, whose driver is lost during the recent reinstallation of window Xp. And I couldnt even find my driver CD for this web cam. When ever I plug on my webcam to my computer, it asks for driver "CIF Single Chip". So if any one has this driver, please send it to me via the email address given below,my product name Hiteck

    Thanks in advance ]

    Maybe have a read of this entire topic :rolleyes:

    We don't need to email you
    And we don't even want your email

    All info is freely available on the forums, and through support replies

    That's right >>> FREE

    Good luck with your issue, it may take a few minutes for you to read everything then go for a search on your WebCam ID

    Email me :haha: (only joking, I wouldn't supply my email on a public forum ;))

    Are you still running XP? See this post here

    /* edit */
    Oooooops! I'm sorry! I just noticed the driver i supplied above is for USB\VID_093a&PID_2468 (you need USB\VID_093a&PID_2461) so it won't work for you. I'll take another look and get back to you over the next coupla days

    LookinAround Ex Tech Spotter Posts: 6,491   +183

    This is an older webcam.

    1) If you're still running XP there's a shot at getting it work. If you're Vista or Win 7 i don't think there's any suitable driver

    2) Best i could find is a driver for a different device i'd have you install and then tell you how to hack it to try and get it to work with your device

    So if you're running XP, still looking and want to give it a shot, let me know and i'll work on giving you the instructions

    Unplug your webcam from the computer
    • Download and install this file
    • Rt click Start->Search. (Enter the fields as shown in example below)
      > *.inf
      > VID_093A&PID_2460
      > Search your C drive


    • We’re going to edit both the oemxx.inf file and the PFC027.inf file.
    • Edit both of these files
      > Find the string VID_093A&PID_2460 and change the last digit to VID_093A&PID_2461
    • Now plug your cam into the USB port. Any luck? (you might also need to reboot)
    i'll keep my fingers crossed!

    /* edit */
    To edit, you can use Start->Programs->Accessories->Notepad. Save and close each file when done

    /* edit */
    Oh. One more thing: The oemxx.inf file is in a "hidden" directory. To see the directory in Explorer: See here to change settings

    NO LUCK - despite doing in toto as guided. The Hardware Wizard (auto & manual) could not recognize the Web Cam!

    Providing some more info about the Web Cam Model. It came with HP Media Centre PC - Model of Camera is DC-5110.

    The Hardware Wizard shows CIF Single Chip while detecting initially.

    1. Let's make sure XP isn't automatically blocking the driver installation
    > Rt click My Computer->Properties->Hardware
    > Click Driver Signing
    > Is it set to Block? (What is it set to?) In any case, suggest you set to Warn then check box to Make this action system default
    > Click OK and close all the windows

    2. I just noticed that each of the two different .inf files i asked you to edit contain 3 different lines that should all be edited.
    > Did you edit each of the 3 lines in each file?
    > Here's a "snippet" of the files (the lines are identical in both files) to show you the 3 lines in each file after i've edited them on my own machine (only changing 2460 to 2461 on each line)
    3. Now replug your web cam. Do you see a message pop-up Warning that you're installing an unsigned driver? If so, click Continue
