Argos Webcams

  Joe Wood 13:51 10 Apr 2004


A few months back I purchased a friend and I purchased webcams from Argos, on a buy one get one free deal, at twenty five pounds for two. Having recently bought a new computer I have turned the house upside down looking for the driver CD. However, it's nowhere to be seen.

I have also spoken to the friend and he too hasn't got the CD!

Does anyone have a copy of this CD and if you do could you please either email me the drivers or create an ISO file and send that to me. My email address is [email protected] but this only supports attachments up to 1Mb so if it's bigger than this please contact me and I'll give you an alternative address.

Many thanks in advance.

What make is the webcam? It may be possible to download a driver / utility from the net.

Is it the PRO-Q one with the silver and red cd?
if it is i have that cd but i think the driver is more than 1meg and the cd ISO would be near 700mb for all of it.

Smart cam i think is the name not sure will check the driver size if it the same one.

The problem is I'm not sure what make it is - it was just the cheapest they had! It doesn't say any info on manufacturer etc in the catalogue. I've phoned Argos but all they could tell me was that they are imported from Hong Kong!

Here's a link to the product on the Argos website:

If anyone has this camera and can email me the drivers or better still create an ISO of the CD that I can download I would be extremely grateful - I'm using a broadband connection so it doesn't matter if the ISO is 700Mb.

Many thanks in advance

I now have the drivers from "A Nickname", which have worked perfectly. If anyone else is looking for these drivers the camera is the Smart Cam that was mentioned previously.
