Jazz DV-179 driver / uknown device

Driver doesn't seem to install, get Windows error 'Unknown Device'...none of the Troubleshooter steps worked. Is there any web place to download a driver that works? The installation auto-run disc seemed to install all the other files/apps smoothly, got the Xvid codec, but can't get Windows to recognize the camera (never had any problem with other digital still cameras).
Any help appreciated. Thanks!

Sound is not working


You just need to download the appropriate audio driver for your motherboard. Go to the Device Manager and install all missing drivers for "Unknown Devices". Either connect to the internet or use the driver disc which came with your laptop.

For those who doesn't know how to access Device Manager, please follow the steps below.

For Windows XP:
Start -> Run -> Type devmgmt.msc (in the box) -> Right click Unknown device -> Properties -> Driver tab -> Update driver

For Windows Vista and Windows 7
Start -> Type devmgmt.msc (in the start search box) -> Right click Unknown device -> Properties -> Driver tab -> Update driver

Hope this helps.

After installing windows 7 the sound drives were not working , no sound


Check Device Manager to for any "unknown devices", your audio device driver might be one of those. Unknown devices usually appears if the device driver (ex. audio driver) is not installed. You can also find an "exclamation point" under "Sound, video and game controllers" if there is conflict on the driver causing no audio to be heard from the unit.

To resolve the issue, you can either use the Drivers installation disc which came with the motherboard or Right-click on the "unknown device" and select "Update driver" button.

For pc users who doesn't know how to check device manager, follow below steps:

Windows XP
- Start > Run > type devmgmt.msc on the box then hit enter key. or you can also
- Start > Right-click My Computer > Properties > Hardware tab > Device Manager

Windows Vista and 7
- Start > type devmgmt.msc on the search box then hit enter key or
- Start > Right-click Computer > System Properties > Device Manager (link at the left pane)

Hope this helps.
