Windows 7: Webcam driver

Webcam driver

Hi i have this real old webcam and i lost the driver cd but the manafacturer website has online drivers for it. They are supposed to work on Windows 2000/XP/Vista. And only on 32bit. i used to have a vista 32bit desktop but i sold it and now i have a laptop with Windows 7 Home Premium x64 on it and the driver wont work. its this program that installs and restarts, but even after restaring it doesnt work. theres an inf file for it, but when trying to install it, it doesnt work becuase its not made for 64bit. is there any way to convert it to 64bit by editting the inf a bit? or do i just have to buy a webcam thats made for 64bit?

P.S The camera i have is "Sakar 24280 Mini Camera - Black"

Windows 7 compatibility center claims it's compatible without any drivers.

However, I went to the site and they do not offer Win 7 drivers

I would tend to think you need to get a new webcam

As inexpensive as Some Windows Seven compatible web cameras are why go through the hassle of trying to get a"real old Web Cam" to work? JMO. fabe

Well it depends on how high of resolution you want or need but anything from Logitech would be a good choice in my opinion.
Since you haven't filled out the part of your specs that would tell us where you live ( has a lot to do with what is avalible to you, hint hint) I'll just point you to the Newegg page for some suggestions.Fabe Newegg.com - logitech web cam
