Do you have a cd with drivers for your camera ? For example,my cd with drivers for XP are working and on Win 7.
Also what's your camera model. What error you got?

No need to download DirectX 9 it is already installed into Winodws 7.

You need the driver for the camera to be installed that is why it is not recognized.
You will need to find the manufacturer's web site and download the driver.

I could find no information on Google for quntum.
