I tryed hooking up my easy cam on my new laptop its a window vista and it keeps saying d-link cif webcam and thats not the cam how do i fix this cause i cant get on cam nor take pics


Most Web Cams will NOT work with VISTA !!!
Microsoft forgot to add driver's in Vista for most hardware. r you need to buy a cam specifically for Vista and if you do it will work on other operating systems as well...

Quite a few of these problems are addressed in Windows 7...

Good Luck!

Veo stingray 330 drivers for windows vista


Veo stingray 330 is not Vista compatible, it will work fine on Windows XP.

Here the drivers download page, there is no driver for Vista, but at least you can use the camera on a different system with XP, in case you want to sell it or give it to a friend.

Okay you can try and go on the internet and see if there is a driver download for vista for your cam.
This usually works
If not I would probably suggest an updated camera since vista was made for newer versions.Just make sre your new cam supports vista
