Question about Creative Labs WebCam Live!

Open Question

I purchased my Creative Labs camera several years ago, it has provided plenty of reliable use through conferencing and other personal video needs for a few of those years. However, during its use, I've misplaced the CD installation disc. This would normally not be a problem, as I have successfully installed the correct software for the camera and been able to use it without. However, after switching to a new computer and attempting the same remedy, I've found- no matter how many times, different installed software, or computer restarts I try, I always face "The Creative Camera is not available, it may be used by another resource." (In the 'Creative WebCam Center) Believe me, there is no other application using the camera at the time. Is there any software you can provide me that may be more up to date than unreliable, third-party clients? Or maybe there's just something causing a glitch in the programming within my computer that could be overrode? Thank you for any and all help.

SOURCE: New computer, old webcam, no installer cd.

Webcam Live! is at the 'end of its service life' and unlikely to have vista drivers available
You could try downloading here and then run the webcam in compatability mode

If Creative Labs does not have a Windows 7 driver for your model sound card, then the sound card is considered too old and they won't provide further support for this sound card. Creative Labs wants you to purchase a later model sound card.

Where can I purchase the VF0470 Live Cam? Tried to purchase it from Computer Depot- waited 5 weeks for product - no camera, no return phone calls, no response to my emails. I need to purchase this camera...


Personally I would buy a Microsoft VX-3000, VX-6000 or a Logitech Web Camera as they provide open support and drivers free and are readily available when new operating systems are made available.
If I can be of further help, contact me and I'll do my best.
Hope this is of some help. Bud
