3. Find your web cam in Device Manager
Understanding Device Names
=> Windows provides user-friendly device names to accomodate us humans. As far as Windows is concerned, the device name is simply a comment!
=> It's those cryptic Device Identification strings that really identify a device
=> Device Manager displays whatever device name it happens to find in the device driver
...==> If Windows finds NO device driver, your web cam may be named "Unknown" or "Other" device
...==> If Windows finds the WRONG device driver you may see your web cam with the WRONG device name
How to find your web cam
=> While your web cam is connected, look through all of Device Manager for devices with a yellow icon (probably a yellow question mark)
=> Be certain to expand the USB category to check all devices listed under it. Also, be sure to also check if category Other Devices appears in Device Manager and look under it as well
=> Your web cam will appear as a device with a yellow icon (probably a question mark)
=> Click on thumbnail to see the full sized image
How to verify the device you found is your web cam
=> Your web cam device will only appear in Device Manager when the web cam is powered on and connected
=> Disconnect your web cam. Verify the device you had found is no longer displayed in Device Manager
4. Find your web cam's Hardware Ids
In Device Manager, select your web cam device, rt click Properties. Click Details tab
Select Hardware Ids from the pull-down. You'll see a list of one or more Hardware Id strings
5. Search for a driver based on Hardware Id > Update 1/26/2011: To avoid a common mistake,
don't confuse the number zero with the letter "O". IDs may contain zero
but NOT the letter "O"
The best driver will match the Hardware Id at the top of the list. The next best driver match will match the next Hardware Id on the list, etc
Start by searching for the Id at the top of the Hardware Id list
If only due to how different search engines work, recommend you cut USB\ from the search string
=> Example: If the Hardware Id is USB\VID_093A&PID_2468&REV_0001 search for VID_093A&PID_2468&REV_0001
You can start by clicking Search at the top of your TechSpot window to search TechSpot first

Your webcam is listed as a Creative Labs Cam but I'm not positive on the model. Is the model (or name) of your cam intex 108 wc?
If you do have a Creative Labs Web cam, you can go to the support page on their Web site and find your Web cam, if you don't see an image of it then scroll down to the bottom of the page and click the link provided if your product isn't listed. You can also search by the model or name of the camera.
Here is the link for the Ezonics web page where you can retrieve the drivers for your camera. In the drop down list you need to choose your camera's model. ( there are 3 that are EZ Cam models). On the next page you will need to click on the link next to your operating system, and you should be all set to download.
