    my 1999 ibm pc camera worked fine on my old compaq 5050 333 mhz. Now I can't get it installed on my everex va430 laptop or my hp mz7760n media center pc both with windows vista. The software installs fine but the usbs don't recognize the camera when I plug in. I have already tried uninstalling software ,rebooting , and then re-plugging in the camera.

IBM Video Conferencing PC Camera Webcam USB?

Try this driver here:

To all using Vista. I heard through postings Microsoft posted a fix for Vista not seeing USB devices. Not 100% sure of this but it wouldn't hurt for you Vista folks to try windows update. Got nut'n to loose!
Oh, IBM stopped making these cam's. If you find 1 your support is limited to none. Best to find a Vista compatable cam.
Microsoft..... there goes the neighbor hood!

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
