Webcam driver

  Welsh Annie 23:32 24 Mar 2003

I downloaded the drivers for my webcam (View Quest Technologies M318B) and ran it from the site, ie I didn't save it to disk. Now it's disappeared ( the download)and the camera still doesn't work! Where's the download gone?

Have you setup NetMeeting as that works with Webcam

Download it again and this time save it to disk. If you ran it from the site the only place it might be is your Temporary Internet folder, but likely not.

woodchip, Net Meeting already loaded but all buttons greyed out.
Megatyte, looked everywhere for download nothing there, so redownloading now.

Meant to ask in previous post:-
D/load should be 3.8 Mb, actual D/load 4.2 Mb, any ideas why? Also isn't 3.8 Mb rather large just for drivers? 'Scuse me but novice at this!

Running 98SE. In Device Manager the camera is shown as being there and ready to use. Under the General tab it says "This device is working properly". A self diagnostic says OK. If I try to use a program to take a snapshot it says no such device is setup! Netmeeting says no video camera present, so where can I go from here?

I assume that the camera is USB. Did you connect it and then let Windoze find it and ask for the drivers or did you install the drivers first. Don't know about View Quest but normally with USB you need to install the drivers and the installation will tell you when to connect the camera. Is there a read me file in the driver package?

Megatyte, yes it is USB. No read me file. Followed on screen instructions, i.e. camera unplugged,so far through program insert USB terminal and everything went OK.Cam just not recognised. Will be off line for a while but any more help appreciated.
