    I had Windows XP OS and the webcam cd worked with that OS. I now have a new computer that has Windows Vista OS on it and the cd with the webcam drivers and ulead photo express and the webcam center on it no longer works this OS since the cd is old. I need the link to the sit that has free driver downloads for the webcam modle VF0090.

  • secretlover3 Nov 19, 2008

    That sent me to a site that had my driver on a list but not able to download. Can you find the link that will let me download it?

  • secretlover3 Nov 19, 2008

    It is a SBC web cam by Creative Labs, Inc. N10225 model number VF0090

    O.K. I am having no luck here. I am not getting access to the driers I need though I do see my cam model on the list of available web cams. Is there a site you know of with a tan or khaki background? it has a list of cams with the model prefix VF****. I found it once through Google but I lost the link now I have to find it all over again can you help me? DO you have a site in your link data base that matches that? The ones you gave me aren't clickable and sometimes they cost. I need a free fix.

Normal 0 You need to go to the manufactures site and download the VISTA driver for the camera. Then follow the info below to install the program.

Disconnect the Camera from the USB port and reinstall the CD or Downloaded software program. When the program asks you to connect the camera to the USB port, do so and it should work.
Hope this helps. Bud

LifeCam VX-1000 on Windows Vista Dell 1521 Turion 64

I just checked to verify that Microsoft does indeed offer a Vista compatible download for that cam. If you are serious about using the cam on the Vista machine, maybe you should try downloading the driver directly from Microsoft. It is entirely possible that the CD drive on your Vista machine is having problems reading the CD that came with the webcam and the download would be a direct install from the hard drive. Heck, it's worth a try, don't ya think.

Mini-cam pro H098067

If you have a vista capable 98067 ver.1 you will need the vista driver for it located at vista drivers. Even though you are using XP the driver is tied in with the Vista one for your camera. I hope this helps.

Is there a driver for the 330vb series cam for windows vista?

This fix will work for all of the VEO Stingray problems because it gives a good driver download site and it tells you step by step how to get your cam to work with VISTA Good Luck and let me know if this fixed your problems.

1.Go to this site and download the driver you need:

2.Download it to your desktop

3. Don't unzip, install, or plug in your cam yet

4.Search for this in your start menu: Program Compatibility Wizard

5. Of the three choices click the one that says look for the program manually

6. Choose the option for XP

7. Choose the 680 x 420 or whatever it is not the 256 colors

8. Choose to run as administrator

9. Click next and it should change your screen to a real big resolution and then it will start to install the driver

10. Go through the install wizard

11. After it has loaded plug in your camera

12. Try a program that it is supposed to work with

13. Finish the Compatibility Wizard

now everything should work for your cam.
This works with all of your programs that vista will not run.

Spaccam 320 problem

Hello mid85, Welcome to Vista. The banner was correct. The fact that it worked at first was a fluke. Let me explain. The driver worked the first time because something messed up in Vista and the driver made all the proper connections with the OS and application to work, but this was a mistake kind of like falling off a moving motorcycle and finding one million dollars (It just does not happen every day). You can try to replicate the install, and this might work, for the most part you have to get all of the upgrade downloads from microsoft and somewhere in all of that will be a utility that will allow you to uae your camera.
