IBM Video Conferencing PC Camera Webcam USB?

Try this driver here:

To all using Vista. I heard through postings Microsoft posted a fix for Vista not seeing USB devices. Not 100% sure of this but it wouldn't hurt for you Vista folks to try windows update. Got nut'n to loose!
Oh, IBM stopped making these cam's. If you find 1 your support is limited to none. Best to find a Vista compatable cam.
Microsoft..... there goes the neighbor hood!

Unable to locate a driver on vista new computer. However, it worked fine on XP. I bought a new computer and it has VISTA on it. My camera was on XP computer. Loaded the disk but message came back "unable...

this is a problem for at least a thousand fixya customers. unfortunately until the manufacturer releases a supported vista driver . this cam is obsolete. hardware companies got with microsoft and actually paid them to insure most of the older stuff would not work on vista. i doubt there will ever be a driver for that model cam ever.

  • The IBM 33L4889 PC Camera Windows 2000/XP Driver installation exe will show the following message: Thank you for downloading the IBM PC/Net Camera Software Driver for Windows 2000/XP. Make sure the IBM PC/Net Camera is unplugged from the computer before installing this software .
  • Click [YES] to continue, the exe will then extract setup files to c:\\setup folder.
  • Go to C:\\setup folder, you will find Setup.exe there, double-click to run it.
  • Follow on-screen instruction to finish the setup.

IBM Camera not finding driver

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.

Try disconnecting 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
