I recently performed a system recovery which has been causing problems. Despite installing the updated drivers for my Creative Webcam (PD1170) no software will recognize the webcam is plugged in. The operation led is lit and Windows recognizes USB hardware, but that's it.

The Creative Webcam Instant, like other computer devices, requires driver software. Once the driver is downloaded and installed, all you have to do is connect the webcam to your computer.
Click "Start" and then go to "Control Panel."
Click on "Category View" in the left pane of the "Control Panel" dialog box if you are in "Classic View." Click on "Performance and Maintenance."
Click on "System Restore" in the left pane of the Performance and Maintenance dialog box.
Click on the circle next to the wording "Create a restore point." Click "Next."
Enter a name for the restore point in the box under the heading "Restore point description:." Click "Create." The restore point will be created and your system will return to a working state within minutes. This process keeps your system safe in case there is an error.
Open your computer's Internet browser.
visit the Creative WebCam Instant driver's website.
Click on your computer's operating system name: or "Show all available drivers."
Click on the link "Download Creative-Labs WebCam Instant Creative WebCam Center v.1.71.02 driver."
Click "Save" when prompted. Navigate to the directory where the file is saved. Double-click on the file to open it.
Follow the on-screen prompts to complete the driver installation.
Plug the Creative WebCam Instant's connection cable into any available Universal Serial Bus (USB) port on your computer. Your computer will recognize the camera and process the camera's driver.
Open a chat client like Yahoo! Messenger, Windows Live or similar application.
Click on the "Webcam" setting within the chat client to activate and use the Creative WebCam Instant camera.
Try the recovery tool from here (this is relevant to your recovery mode question also), but not all mp3 players will work with Windows Media Player 11 - causes a DB corruption - roll back to Windows Media Player 10 if this is the case:
I had the same problem with the vf-0050 on a win vista x32 PC. I Downloaded the latest XP driver from creative and installed it. THe camera works fine with MSN messenger and skype. I'll have to wait and see if it works with x64 as well.
Hope this works for you.
