Windows 7: BSOD when installing drivers for webcam

BSOD when installing drivers for webcam

I have an iHome MyLife USB Webcam Kit model numbers IH-W305DB and IH-W306DW. The driver install disc completed successfully, but when I plug the webcam into the USB 2.0 port I get a BSOD a few seconds after Windows brings up the "Found New Hardware" dialog. The BSOD says BAD_POOL_HEADER.

This is the information after the latest Windows reboots:

Problem signature:
Problem Event Name: BlueScreen
OS Version: 6.1.7601.
Locale ID: 1033

Additional information about the problem:
BCCode: 19
BCP1: 0000000000000020
BCP4: 0000000004110005
OS Version: 6_1_7601
Service Pack: 1_0
Product: 768_1

So, I tried the webcam out in my install of Ubuntu 14.04, and it works (with a few problems, but that's another story). I have attached the dump files from dm log collector.

I did some research, and similar problems have been stated to be caused by the GUCI_AVS driver. Just throwing that out there.

The driver that you are trying to install is of 2008, even before windows 7 preview was released. It will not go with your OS.

Either update the driver (USB2.0 UVC VGA by PixArt Imaging Incorporation, I dont know the source) or dont use the device.

Awesome! So I updated the driver (took a bit of looking before finding one I could trust), and now it works! Strange thing is that the "new" driver is dated 6\21\2006 in the properties, but it works. The video from the webcam has a low frame rate issue, but that's another topic. At least it works! Thank you so much, Arc!
