Gave up. All worked fine on my desktop XP (the .avi is focused less than crisply), but I also need it to work on my traveling Thinkpad Win98.

Dozens of people who bought this camera report on the Internet missing the driver necessary, mostly for XP. The camera has disappeared from the Internet and can't be googled ("Innovage 3-function 2.1 migapixel digital camera") - all we get now is "mini" and keychain. Evidently the manufacturer batches a product and, when wholesaled out, drops all evidence it ever existed, and certainly support. They haven't even provided a site from which to download Win98 drivers.

It's a good camera at a great price, quite advanced over the small digicams I first tried a few years ago to stand in for an old Kodak brownie, so I'm disappointed to have to take it back to Walgreens - there are few if any similar cameras avail for $30 or less. Guess I'll have to use my old 35mm for a while more until sanity returns to the digicam world. Maybe 2 of 5 cameras ($50-$100) are listed as suitable for Win98, but how to know they have the right drivers, or were evben tested on a Win98 config described?

Also, I'm not clear what drivers are wanted - one for the USB, or one for the device, or both? Shouldn't the USB driver be generalized, and the camera driver be specific for the device features (for example, this camera makes it's photos avail for download from a folder it creates when the camera is detected).

Anyway,
James

My ipod touch shows up as a camera and ive tried site user ekse's solution but whn i go to upload driver i cant find any thing other than my ipod as a camera


ok you can try this method : 1. First off you need to have iTunes installed and the ipod touch plugged in and recognized as 'something' e.g. digital camera (it shouldn't really matter what it's recognized as, but it needs to be found by windows).
2. Search for usbaapl in the C:\WINDOWS system folder: o open windows explorer (e.g. Right-click Start and then click 'explore') o right-click the WINDOWS folder and select 'Search'). o type in usbaapl and hit Search - try to ignore the dog! You should find the driver info in a sub folder of C:\WINDOWS\system32\DRVSTORE e.g. C:\WINDOWS\system32\DRVSTORE\usbaapl_A65621D65F5B7507DD7B22331826547BDD2D206B Remember that location (either leave the search box open or copy the folder name into note pad - you'll need it later) If you don't find usbaapl.sys, usbaapl.inf etc. then your drivers have not been installed with the iTunes install and you'll have to reinstall iTunes.

3. Locate the ipod-camera device: o Open the device manager, e.g. using Start > Control Panel > Performance and Maintenance > System > Hardware Tab > Device Manager o Look for a device called 'ipod' - if your ipod shows up as 'digital camera' it will be under something like 'imaging devices'.
4. Update the driver: o Right click the 'ipod-camera' in device manager and click on 'Update Driver' - the Hardware Update Wizard will open. o Check the 'Install from a list or specific location' then click 'Next' o Check 'Search for the best driver in these locations'. Un-check 'Search removable media' and check 'Include this location in the search'. In the text box below type (or better copy and paste) the folder containing the ipod driver information found in step 1 (in the example above it was C:\WINDOWS\system32\DRVSTORE\usbaapl_A65621D65F5B7507DD7B22331826547BDD2D206B), then click Next. You should now see something like 'Apple ipod device driver' or so. Continue installing that device. Once the driver has been installed the ipod will come to life and iTunes (if you have it open) will show it.

P.S.:if you didn't find the updated drive in STEP1 you can try to find the updated drive file in C:\windows\system32\drivestore\FileRepository\usbappl.inf

My webcam is not recognized and I get a message that says that the camera is not turned on. I cannot find the device in my device manager in order to repair it and the driver. I need help! I can be...


You should first verify that the USB port can recognize a USB memory stick i.e. verify that the USB port hardware is working. If its is not, use Device Manager to reload the USB Host Adapter drivers.


If this is an external USB device (laptop or desktop) ...

the Device Manager will always locate the camera, if only as an Other Device or sometimes with the wrong driver in another device class. One possibility, if the host PC is a laptop, is check the Power Scheme. Set this to Always On, as this is supposed to (but not always..) stop Windows from turning off external interfaces (such as USB) to conserve power.

Check if the camera will appear in Device Manager on another PC. This will verify that the camera hardware is functional.

If this is a laptop built-in WebCam, it will usually appear in Device Manager under Imaging Devices. If it does not, I'd suspect that the camera hardware has a problem.

Let's assume that this is an external USB Camera. When the camera driver is loaded, the driver INF file is copied to a new file

C:\Windows\inf\oem.inf where is an arbitrary number.

When you plug in the camera, Windows PlugandPlay looks in C:\Windows\inf for the correct driver to assign to the device.

Windows can get confused about drivers, esspecially if you have attempted to reload the driver, or load a newer version.

If you do a search for all C:\Windows\inf\oem*.inf containing "Toshiba" or "WebCam" you should be able to locate one or more oem*.inf files that is the installed driver for your webcam.

Lets say this file is oem31.inf Delete this file and also oem31.pnf if its present.

This removes the last driver that was installed. Now, run Device Manager, and plug in the camera. If Device Manager can locate the camera (as an Other Device to start with), you should be able to reload the correct driver, either from the installed driver directory (if there is one) or from you camera CD.

Unable to access my 4 GB Transcend pen drive with Windows Vista Home Premium Edition. Able to access it with Windows XP successfully but always prompting "Unable t find driver" when tried with Vista


Here are the 3 possible solutions to this problem,

SOLUTION 1 :- 
Make sure the you have the Service Pack 1 installed for you vista computer.
You can find it out by opening the run command and type "winver" (without quotes) there. If it's not showing SP1 please update Windows Vista to Service Pack 1 which includes the update to fix this problem as this was the problem when vista was launched but fixed with SP1.

If updating vista does not resolve the issue try the solution provided below:

SOLUTION 2 :- 

Manually locate the driver within the Vista operating system. 

Microsoft Windows Vista may not find any driver for the device that is plugged in the USB port because the usbstor.inf (for MSC device) or wpdmtp.inf (for MTP enabled devices) is not present inside the C:\Windows\INF folder.  

To resolve this issue, you must copy the driver files to the C:\Windows\INF folder. 

Browse to the following folder:

1. C:\Windows\System32\DriverStore\FileRepository. 
2. Look for the folder that starts with usbstor.inf_. 
3. Copy all the files inside this folder to C:\Windows\INF. 
4. Disconnect and reconnect the device. 



If the problem still persists, try this Solution: 

SOLUTION 3 :-
Clear hidden devices and make changes to the Registry

First backup your registry by  following these steps,
1. Click Start 
2. Type regedit on the start search field, then press Enter. 
3. Click File then select Export. 
4. Under Export Range select All. 
5. Type in the desired name to be saved. 
  
STEP 2 - Remove Hidden Devices 
1. Click Start.. 
2. Type cmd on the start search field , then press Enter. 
2. Type set DEVMGR_SHOW_DETAILS=1 and press Enter. 
3. Type set DEVMGR_SHOW_NONPRESENT_DEVICES=1 and press Enter. 
4. Type start devmgmt.msc and press Enter. 
5. Device Manager window will appear  
5. Click View, then select Show hidden devices. 
6. Click + to expand Imaging devices, Unknown devices, and USB devices. 
7. Verify if there are any devices and unknown devices (including grayed out devices). Uninstall. 

STEP 3 - Remove all oem*.inf files 
1. Click Start. 
2. Type cmd on the start search field and press Enter. 
3. In the command line, type in the following commands and press Enter after each command: 
  cd \windows\inf 
  ren infcache.1 *.old 
  ren oem*.inf *.old 
  del C:\windows\setupapi.log 
  exit 

STEP 4 - Remove entries under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Enum\USB 

Remember,if you have a USB keyboard or mouse, do not remove the VID entry for these devices, otherwise, Windows may not restart correctly. 

1. Click Start 
2. Type regedit on the start search field, then press Enter. 
3. Click on the "+" symbol beside HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE 
4. Navigate to \System\CurrentControlSet\Enum\USB. 
5. Highlight and delete all the VID_xxxx entries. 


Please note that if you have a USB keyboard or mouse, do not remove the VID entry for these devices, otherwise, Windows may not restart correctly. 
  

After this turn off your PC completely then with the PC turned off, plug the USB flash drive to a USB port and then turn on the PC. 
Now, a New Hardware Detected balloon will appear and the USB drivers will load automatically.

Please let me know if the problem persists.

Olympus 3000 Zoom digital camera


You have to edit the file:

c:\windows\inf\srusbusd.inf

You'll have to remove two semicolons.

The section:
[Manufacturer]
;%MfgNikon%=ModelsNikon
;%MfgEpson%=ModelsEpson
remove this semicolon=>;%MfgOlympus%=ModelsOlympus

Must become:
[Manufacturer]
;%MfgNikon%=ModelsNikon
;%MfgEpson%=ModelsEpson
%MfgOlympus%=ModelsOlympus

And

The section:
[ModelsOlympus]
remove this semicolon=>;%USB\VID_07B4&PID_0100.Device%=Olympus,
USB\VID_07B4&PID_0100
must become:
[ModelsOlympus]
%USB\VID_07B4&PID_0100.Device%=Olympus, USB\VID_07B4&PID_0100

After this, if you have already the Olympus C-xxxx in your Device Manager,
uninstall it and run again the new hardware wizard. Let Windows XP find the
correct driver. Windows will attempt to frighten you with a catastrophe
prophecy. Just ignore it and go on (it works perfectly).
You're done. Now your Windows XP will see your Olympus C-XXXX Zoom
without any additional software.
