I have been given a Sumvision 5mp Web cam but cant get XP to install drivers

Sumvision site says no driver required but I can't get it installed and working

All help appreciated

Yes doesn't matter which port I plug it into, XP recognises it s a USB web cam, starts the hardware wizard but fails to install as it cannot find a driver.

Is the webcam recognised by Skype, or similar, in Tools>Options>Video Settings?
