Windows 7: missing webcam driver

08 Mar 2011   #1

missing webcam driver

hi all gurus of 7,

this is rather stupid. I was cleaning out the closet and found this webcam (dont know the brand) i havent used in a while eversince my laptop has its own built in usb camera.

now, for sure i cant find the installation disk. so i Plugged the webcam relying on windows driver database which failed miserably.

Its not really an issue but its nagging me that I cant use this webcam.
I tried already SIW software which got me this:

PC Camera USB\VID_0AC8&PID_307B\5&253710DA&0&2

any ideas?

tried to download the one that says win 7 ..... run the *.exe file then I restarted the PC.

When I plugged in the camera same thing happened. I tried to look up drivers manually
and it says 'device could not start code error 10'.
