Driver download

The manufacturer makes no drivers available for this basic webcam, saying the native Windows drivers are adequate for its function.

If it does not work properly, update the Windows driver.

Will not wrk with vista basic

Common problem when upgrading from Xp to Vista. Either the webcam is incompatible with Vista (you're out of luck) or you need a Vista driver for the cam. Check your computer manufacturer's website and the cam's website for the Vista driver.

New microphone works on one sight, but not another

Logitec cams have some issues with some Windows operating systems particularly Vista, However if you have Vista you will have to download Vistas driver for that exact cam model. If your operating system isnt Vista then setup the cam in "control panel, printers and other hardware, scanners and cameras". Also I trust when you installed the driver you did NOT plug camera in till it told you to do so.!! ALL USB powered devices must NOT be plugged in while loading drivers.

Vista problem

you may have a webcam that is not vista compatable. If the drivers are not on creatives website for your cam, for vista, you are suckered. Try swapping your cam with a friend or a recycle website for a one that is vista compatable. best of luck!

Windows vista incompatible

Unfortunately a lot of companies don't have drivers yet for their devices to allow them to work with Vista. The best thing to do is to check the manufacturers web site periodically to check if the have written a new driver for it yet.
