IBM Camera not finding driver

So I just got a new computer... trying to find a way to get my IBM camera to work with vista... I have the old XP Driver (all I can find) and install it... says it's installed... when I go to run the cam it says it's not plugged in (but it clearly is)... what can I do to fix this?

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

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.

Driver for Pretec DC-300 Digital Camera for Windows Vista


Try this:

Uninstall the driver (if installed). Next, put in the driver CD and browse to the setup.exe file. Right click and select properties. In the box that opens, select compatibilty tab and select the box next to "runthis program in compatibilty mode for" and select XP SP2. and install the program

Should that not work, uninstall and retry the above process, but select Windows 98 or 2000 this time..Hopefully that will work.

If it still does not work, then unfortunately, you will either have to downgrade to XP (I believe the driver works for XP) or buy a new camera altogether..

Unable to locate a driver on vista new computer. However, it worked fine on XP. I bought a new computer and it has VISTA on it. My camera was on XP computer. Loaded the disk but message came back "unable...


this is a problem for at least a thousand fixya customers. unfortunately until the manufacturer releases a supported vista driver . this cam is obsolete. hardware companies got with microsoft and actually paid them to insure most of the older stuff would not work on vista. i doubt there will ever be a driver for that model cam ever.

Web cam doesnt work on my laptop


Hi soleillee,

Yeah this is most likely a driver problem. You see the drivers from windows xp wont work with windows vista. It is very likely that your camera was not made with vista drivers if it is more than a year old. Unfortunately without a windows vista drivers your camera wont work. so you have two options:

1- find out if the camera has a vista drivers and install them
2- buy a new camera ( i know its frustrating)

And if i may recommend the logitech cameras, they are sturdy and the mid range ones have great picture, and best of all there tech support is easy to find when you want a new driver.

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!
