Driver for camera no longer works
It shouldn't be necessary to install the camera driver, unless your PC is running Windows 98. The camera should just work if you plug it in.
The CD includes two other pieces of software: Roxio Photosuite SE and iSee Media Photovista. None of these are really necessary for typical everyday use, and they can be replaced by free alternatives such as Picasa
(easy), or GIMP
The Windows 98 drivers can be downloaded here
