the CIF chip performs the same task as the retina in your eye. what webcam and what operating system are you using?

I am using Win XPsp2 Home, a usb Soc pc camera, it came with no drivers but use to work before i hadf to reinstall xp. ialso have loaded Hauppage software loaded and use to AMcap from that program.

I have found nothing on the description of the camera you have given. I suggest going to the manufacturers' website if they have one and downloading the drivers for the webcam. Alternatively back to where you bought and ask them.

I am sorry that I am not of much help
