How to identify your webcam (and then find its driver)

Hello. I need some help. I recently updated to Windows 8.1 (kill me) from windows 8. Most of my drivers decided to stop working for some reason, like my wifi internet connection and others. I got most of them to work besides the webcam. I have an Asus g750jx gaming laptop.

My hardware Ids are:
USB\VID_13D3&PID_5188&REV_0903&MI_00
USB\VID_13D3&PID_5188&MI_00

I have no idea where to find the drivers or the manufacturer and so far everything I've tried hasn't worked. Please help.

You camera is a generic USB Camera provided by Asus. When you look up the IDs, it comes back as "ASUSTEK USB CAMERA". The odd thing is that official download page for your laptop does not include the camera driver.

This leads me to believe the driver has been bundled with another suite of drivers like the Chipset or another set of utilities.

If I were in your shoes, I'd be going through their driver downloads and installing anythin

If I had to guess, I'd say it's probably bundled as part of their Chipset untilies or something similar. Go through their office driver downloads and look for items you may not have installed.

I tried downloading the chipset and all the different utilities for 8.1. Still nothing. Every time I try to update the drivers through Device Manager is says "Windows found the driver software for your device but encountered an error while attempting to install it."
 
Could you help me find a driver for this two devices ?

1) USB\VID_046D&PID_0825&REV_0012&MI_02
USB\VID_046D&PID_0825&MI_02

2)USB\VID_046D&PID_0825&REV_0012&MI_00
USB\VID_046D&PID_0825&MI_00
 
I had already tried downloading the driver from the logitech website itself already but it doesn't read.

The model for my webcam is Logitech C270 HD Webcam

1) USB\VID_046D&PID_0825&REV_0012&MI_02
USB\VID_046D&PID_0825&MI_02

2)USB\VID_046D&PID_0825&REV_0012&MI_00
USB\VID_046D&PID_0825&MI_00
VID_046D = Logitech
PID_0825 = Webcam C270

You definitely have the right data, if the driver on Logitech's site isn't work, nor is the manufacturer's (incase of a laptop) I'd suggest putting in a support ticket. You have the right hardware and the right driver, time to contact the manufacturer.

Let's try to see what kind of device error you're getting on the USB device. It sounds like you're downloading the right driver, so let's see if the error is other than "No driver installed"

List any Problem devices
  • Make sure devices are connected and powered on
  • Click the Start Orb, type msinfo32 in the search box. Hit Enter
  • 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
  • On the other hand, if no devices are listed, tell me so
 
Howdy. I've got a dash camera that can operate as a web cam. I need it to operate as a web cam so I can focus the lens. It's a bit fuzzy as is.

I'm running windows 7 64 bit and the camera has no distinguishing manufacturer. It's from china. The name of the dash cam can be F70, i1000 or X6 but no one seems to be able to nail down a manufacturer.

Device manager just sees it as USB Video device and error code 10 (device cannot start). It will see it as a USB storage device and it works fine when I have a MicroSD card installed.

Hardware ID's:
USB\VID_1F3A&PID_1000&REV_0100&MI_00
USB\VID_1F3A&PID_1000&MI_00

Here's system info for problem devices:

USB Mass Storage Device USB\VID_0BC2&PID_3000\____________6QG1402C This device cannot start.
USB Video Device USB\VID_1F3A&PID_1000&MI_00\6&E392501&0&0000 This device cannot start.


I've googled and yahoo'd but no luck.

Found a few references to a "Hercules web cam" from the hardware id's, but it didn't work. Cam bundled as an installer and refused to install when it didn't see the hardware it wanted. It just hung halfway through.

Anyone what to take a shot at it?

@rudolfdiesel

I like a challenge... and you sure have one!! There are some bits and pieces of info I'm trying to put together.
1. Was your dash cam ever connected to and work with a Windows computer? I found some indication this device may work with Linux. Not sure about Windows

2. Does this cam also record data? It's the first time I've seen a cam which includes a USB Mass Storage interface.

fyi.. The "MI_00" at the end of the hardware ID indicates a USB device with "multiple interfaces". In the early days, one USB device plugged into one USB port and only acted as a single device. But later, USB spec with enhanced to support multi-interface. (One USB port but it present multiple interface over that port)

A common multi-interface USB device is a wireless keyboard/mouse transceiver. It's only one physical USB port, but Windows treats it as though it were two separate devices. A hardware id with the MI_00 notation at the end indicates a multi-interface device. Each interface needs its own suitable driver.

Cams that support audio and video are also multi-interface: one for audio other for video and each with its own driver.

YOUR device is the first one I've seen that seems to include a USB Mass Storage device interface. Does it record the video????

I have an old PC USB cam DC 4120 Chicony and have no drivers for it.I know for the trick of using drivers of Hercules classic cam as they have the same chip OV519, but there are some problems when trying to install it that way.
First of all I cannot finish installing process at all as it asks for CD or the right path.
When I try to find in temp files the serial number or a line of numbers and letters in order to manually install it I don`t find there anything as it shows it is empty folder.I cannot even find the right path as when I go to C/users/my name/there is no Appdata at all?
How to install this cam driver as I know it is possible.Once that trick worked out for me but it wasn`t me who did it, so now I don``t know what to do.Please if someone can help me, I need my camera ready to use quickly.Thanks

USB\VID_1908&PID_2311&REV_0100&MI_00

If the error messages says the 2.0 port is incompatible with the 3.0 on my computer can I still use the device? If so, I am having trouble finding the drivers for the device also. Thanks

I found this post here and although it's a bit old, maybe someone can help me. I have an old webcam that I don't know the manufacturer and I don't also have the driver. I wanna install this device in my windows 10 computer and I only have the hardware ID. Can you help me?
VID_0AC8&&PID_303B&REV_0100
 
Yipeeeeeeeeeee

:grinthumb :D:D:D:D:D:

Thanks a million pal. Got it and got my camera working. Another feather in your cap.

I don't know how to express my gratitude for your unconditional, ceaseless and persistent help and assistance to so many webcam owners in peril. You are truly an angel.

I live in India, and I was not getting the option, "Download this file by viewing a series of ads", here. So I requested my cousin in US who downloaded the file for me and send it to me.

Sorry I forgot to mention, that I have XP Pro as my operating system.

THANKS! THANKS! THANKS.....FOREVER. MAY GOD FILL YOUR LIFE WILL ALL THE HAPINESS YOU WISH FOR HELPING SO MANY DISTRESSED SOULS.
Hello,
Im having the same problem, can you send me a copy of the file.
Thanks.
 
Just had to buy a new machine, headset and cam on short notice for an online class. Budget and time restraints were considerable. The only cam I could afford that would arrive on time was the one I got.
Everything seems to work but the cam. Well, it works... sometimes. Other times, well, it doesn't.

Dell Inspiron 3671
Windows 10

Cam self-ID's in Device manager as "Fullhan webcam"
The ONLY markings of any kind on it, bottom front it says "SriHome," it appears it may be model SH037

Hardware Ids:

USB\VID_1D6C&PID_0103&REV_0010&MI_00

USB\VID_1D6C&PID_0103&MI_00

As I said, sometimes it works, sometimes no.
Sometimes unplugging it and plugging it back in works, sometimes no.
Sometimes when it is NOT working, Device manager says it is working properly
other times instead of showing up under "Cameras" it pops up under USB controllers with error "Device Descriptor Request Failed"

What's worse, when the cam screws up, Zoom locks up. I missed half a demo today, the cam was working earlier, but by the time I tried to join the Zoom room, it froze.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
