    My first guess is this is an unsigned driver and XP is set to block unsigned drivers (fyi.. for anyone reading: this option applies only to Win2K and XP)

    > Rt click My Computer->Properties->Hardware
    > Click Driver Signing
    > Is it set to Block? In any case, suggest you set to Warn then check box to Make this action system default
    > Click OK close all the windows and reboot

    Now reinstall the download i gave you. Are you now warned that you are installing an unsigned driver? If so, click Continue

    From all the info you provided, i believe the download i gave you should work for your webcam under XP. So my next guess is, yes, it's probably XP lite.

    fyi. I did a quick Google and this thread which does, in fact, seem to indicate XP lite is the problem and solution is to build the driver into the nLite builld. (but i have no idea how to do that as i never used XP Lite)

    You're most welcome. :)

    Also: Did you build your own XP lite installation? From the brief thread i showed you, i get the impression that you need to start with an XP Pro version with the web cam already installed. And then use that installation to create your XP Lite. Sounds like you can't install it the web cam into XP Lite itself.

    G;luck! I'm curious how it all works out....

    I have Pixart camera and can't find the Drivers.

    I've tried XP-SocPcCamerazenithusbdriver, SC120 and Vimicro_301_Driver,
    and with all, I've modified the .inf file to match the HardwareId listed in Device Manager(PID_2608),

    so changed:
    but still no luck :(

    Any tips ?

    Thanks in advance,

    Hi orgicus

    When you view the hardware ID list for your cam does it include USB\VID_093A&PID_2608&MI_00 as that ID matches this driver HERE. Download and run the Setup file. Tho i'm not certain which versions of Windows it supports. so if it should work for you let me know which version Windows you're running

    Thanks for the quick reply LookingAround.

    I've installed the driver, altough with a few hickups (for some reason the Device Manager was prompting for some missing files. There was a sys file which was already in the Windows folder, a few .ini files and images (from some optional applications I imagine) ), but in the end IT WORKED!

    woo hoo! Thank you very much, I've spent ages before hand trying to work this out.

    Now I would like to access the camera from Processing, but the Capture class in the video library throws an error. (I'm guessing something weird with Quicktime, wish they used DirectDraw on windows)...but I'm guessing the Processing forums is the best place for this.

    Thanks again!

    Well, that was easy :)

    If anyone is interested, to get QuickTime capture on Windows(which is used by Processing's video library), you need to install WINDVIG101 (via Processing forum)

    To all

    Here is a website with all variations of the CIF SINGLE CHIP drivers (specifically for webcams, because cif single chips can also be a LAN card, not to be confused.)

    The Eye110 driver will usually fix ya right up INCLUDING WIN 7 64 BIT.
    if it works but you have a problem with the infrared, just try the others.
    the last two links on bottom are the origional drivers for 32 bit. like the cheezy mini cds that come with webcams from ebay.

    These cameras have been around a long time and so have these drivers. It took me about 10 seconds to find these drivers on google!:)
