TESCO Value Webcam

  roygbiv 10:53 24 Mar 2008

I have got a TESCO Value Webcam (TECH1).

It installed fine on (old) WIN 2000 lappy.
(a good image considering the cost £5.49)

I cant seem to install it on WIN XP, tried everything I can think of..TIA..Alan

Use the supplied disc, download driver from Tesco site, all the same result
"No video capture available"
I am "stuck" for things to try ????

Try this small (free) piece of software. It worked for me when I lost all the software for my Aldi (£5) webcam.

Is the webcam set as the Default video device and also Enabled from the drop down menu in its Properties from Device Manager>Imaging Devices?

cant seem to get the driver to be reconised, in any form?????????????

I am beginning to think this Webcam is NOT compatible with XP ??

A ramble around google suggests that the camera is a Easy Snap Snake Eye WebCam manufactured by Pixart in Taiwan(sp?). See this thread from a linux forum click here
using the info in post 3 on that forum may help you find the driver.
