Hi, found an old webcam that I am trying to fix up, probably about 3 or 4 yrs old. No make on it but it used to work OK. XP Home sees it but asks for a driver, it is USB device. Shows with the yellow question mark in Device Manager but under Driver Details it says "No driver files are required or have been loaded for this device" it does not show in Scanners & Cameras either. Any ideas please.
Thanks for the suggestion but I have no idea how to do that.
I have limited knowledge of Skype, I believe it to be a means of connecting webcams over the net but not something I have ever tried. When I said the camera worked in the past it did but I was only using it as a video device for my own PC ie record to disk or files, never actually used it as an online camera. If you think Skype would help is this something I can download?
Thanks again Nontek,I will give that a try. It has sound lead so I assume it has a mike. Not for me anyway, for my daughter no one wants to see my ugly mug including myself. If I does not work I will just buy another they are cheap enough I just hate wasting things.
In Skype go to Tools>Options and you will see Video settings .... when in Video Settings you should see your camera listed, if it does not appear click on the small black down-arrow alongside camera name space to see it.
