Driver for Webcam

  Dirty Dick 09:33 23 Oct 2008

I run XP on my Desktop PC, and have a Creative Video Blaster Webcam 5, which runs fine on that PC.

However, I have a Laptop, running Vista Ultimate, and when I try to use the Webcam on the Laptop, it can't locate the drivers.

I have a disc that came with the Webcam, but still won't work.

Is there anywhere I can download a driver to use with Vista for this Webcam? (I have done an extensive search on Google, but am getting lots & lots of hits, but can't see anything for this Cam.)

I am pretty sure that that particular webcam is not Vista compatible. All the drivers I have seen appear to stop at XP.

Maybe time to update your webcam - I recommend Logitech, mine is the 9000Pro.

It was only a cheapie anyhow !

Will invest in a new one for a Laptop, Vista compatible.

Thanx Technotiger
