I have a trust spacecam usb and recently upgraded to xp the cams only 3yrs old and trust wont support it !!! because as the support centre said it only has a two year gurrantte !! ever since TRUST got taken over I know thay have been crap but not to support a product that's 3yrs old is a bit mean !!! (yes i tried all over for other drivers) anyone with 98/me want a free spacecam usb it works fine but dont expect any support or an updated driver !!!!!

You have already posted this and have had a bunch of replies; they are hardly likely to change. A new camera is £19.99, get one, stop the angst and move on.

Trust cannot be expected to pre-guess what MS are about to do, is this unclear?

I'll take a free camera if it's still on offer. Then i'll be able to add a picture to click here

three years is an eternity, and I for one am not at all surprised that this company isn't going to write a new driver for your product.

A new camera will cost less than a meal out for two, and if I had to spend that much every three years I wouldn't be complaining. If you want low-cost products you will have to accept that post sales support - particularly years down the line - is going to be limited.

It must be a good and reliable product if you have had three years use out of it, without any [driver] problems until recently. Due to the cheapness of this type of product, you will find that in some computer bundles, these webcam products are offered 'free'.To save further frustration, why not go to PCW or Ebuyer for the latest model with XP drivers, which you should be able to pick up at a good sensible price.
