Question about Webcams

Webcam driver I recently purchased a laptop and went to install my webcam and realized I don't have the install disk for it anymore and need the driver.  The problem is, I have no idea what kind of webcam it is, other than I got it free from acuvue (contact lens company) through a promotional seminar.  If anyone has any advice it would be greatly appreciated. i cant download my webcam to my computer b/c i have no idea where my disc is i need HELP!

If you have it still installed on your old computer and still have that computer you may be able to tell what brand and model it is from there. If it's a USB webcam you might need to plug it into the old computer for this.

In the Mac OS your webcam would probably show up on your computer's desktop as it's own icon and tell you what brand it is and possibly model as well.

If you're working in Windows, you should be able to view it from your device manager. Let me know if you're working on a Mac or other OS and need instructions on how to look at the webcam's properties in there. There also may be associated software installed on your old computer that says the brand name and/or model to give you clues.

Often in Windows webcams have software that runs automatically when the computer's on and it's plugged in (sometimes even when it's not plugged in) that also makes a little icon (picture) in the bottom right of a Windows screen, by the time. Hovering over the icons that look like your webcam should allow you to pick the correct one to open and identify what webcam you have.

If you don't still have it installed or don't have access to your old computer, you may be able to recognize it on common webcam sites. Logitech makes popular webcams & their site has pics of their different models so you can get the correct download here: http://www.logitech.com/index.cfm/support_downloads/downloads/webcams/&cl=us,en

All this is assuming that you tried plugging it in already. If you haven't tried it, you might want to as OS's often come pre-loaded with various device drivers.

Hope that helps! :)

Hello can I assume that you webcam says Acuvue and under that it says Pioneer? Also does it say Deluxe anywhere on it. Are there numbers like XwC0001 as a model number. I am also wondering if you want Windows XP or some other driver compatability?
Let me know so I can get the exact thing you need.
Thanks

How do i install all the drivers for my hercules black and silver web cam


I suggest to take a look on the box and see if it says it don;t need a driver for windows ..most cameras sold in the last 2 years do not need a driver disk in windows anymore and install themselves right the way ..Just give it a try in case it never had a driver ..

My p10uc EZ Cam , ImTrying To install it without a Disk But I don't Know How , Any Help?


Hey there, I'm sorry to inform you but after googling a little i found out that the drivers can normally be found at this link. However it seems that the manufacturer's site doesn't exist anymore so you'll have to either find the disk for this webcam or look really hard to find the drivers for this webcam on some other website, But it will be pretty difficult.
The easiest thing to do at this point would be just buying a new camera


I hope I was able to help a little.

I purchased my Microtek ScanMaker 3800 many years ago. I still have the installation CD. Recently I purchased an HP laptop running Vista. My question: is it all right to plug in the scanner directly...


First connect your scanner to computer with usb cable.
Then insert disk in rom then install driver and software from disk.
It is not matter that first you connect scanner or install driver but if you connect scanner first your computer recognized it then you can install driver from disk.
Let me know if you need further assistance.
Thanks for using FixYa.
