My pc with Vista does'nt recognize IBM 33L4889 I


Sometimes it is better to cut your losses and replace the old device instead of trying to find a non-existent driver or fall prey to sites which claim to provide "drivers for everything - just scan your computer" and then they infest you with malware, adware or spyware, charge a fee and you get nothing except headaches for your trouble.

Especially with 64-bit Vista, older camera drivers just do not exist and it is less costly to replace the camera than to search in frustration.

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

How to hook up my picture camera


Youre in a bit of a pickle if you're using Windows XP or Vista (i.e., any Windows operating system that is less than 10 years old).

the Xirlink IBM Pro Max has been out of production for a few years. In fact, the manufacturer (Xirlink) doesn't even have a site anymore. That's right, its older than Dakota Fanning, but we won't be deterred, will we?

Let's fix it so it can operate on XP/Vista:

  1. download the original driver for windows 98 by going here. NOTE: Make sure you save this on your desktop or somewhere that you can find it easily, I can not stress this enough.
  2. let's examine the driver status in Device Manager. You can get to the device manager by right-clicking on My Computer, clicking on Properties, clicking on the Hardware tab, and then clicking on the Device Manager button. The Device Manager on my notebook computer indicated a problem with a USB IMAGING DEVICE
  3. Double-clicking on the USB IMAGING DEVICE brings up the Properties. It turned out that the driver for the IBM PC Camera is not installed, as shown in picture below. To install the driver correctly, click on the "Reinstall Driver..." button.
  4. The "Reinstall Driver..." button brings up the Hardware Update Wizard, which will help guide you through installing the correct driver for the IBM PC Camera. The first thing it asks you is whether you would allow it to connect to Windows Update server to search for the software driver. Pick "No, not this time". Click on the "Next >" button to continue.
  5. The next screen asks whether you would like the Hardware Update Wizard to install the software automatically or manually (see picture below). Select "Install from a list or specific location." It will prompt you to find the driver. Remember where I said to download it on the desktop? If you did, it should be right there :)
  6. Because the driver isn't made for Windows XP, it would throw up a warning box shown below. The warning box says that the driver "has not passed Windows Logo testing to verify its compatibility with Windows XP." This warning is really just Microsoft's way of getting you to buy newer hardware. Click on "Continue Anyway"; the IBM PC Camera will work just fine with Windows XP.
  7. Now, the Hardware Update Wizard has installed the driver for the camera, so you can click "Finish" to complete the process.
  8. After closing the Hardware Update Wizard, you will return to the driver properties box. Noticed that the title of the box has changed from "USB IMAGING DEVICE Properties" to "IBM PC Camera Properties". And you will see that the driver and device are now working properly. Click the "Close" button to close this dialog box.
  9. After closing the driver property box, you will see that the Device Manger has been updated as well. It now shows the IBM PC Camera device driver in a working state.
  10. Voila! We're done. Open up skype or whatever you wish to use to show your pretty mug and grab a beer for all the hard effort. If you're not 21, well, get some cider or something.

Hope this helped you!

Software won't work with vista


Uninstall Windows Vista. Do a fresh install of Windows XP Professional Sp2. Download XP drivers and install camera. Many software programs have trouble initializing in Windows Vista. Good luck!
