Microsoft lifecam vx-1000 won't install

I have a microsoft lifecam vx-1000 and i tried to install it and it says that it can not find the driver software for it. I have tried to download some software directly from microsoft after speaking to somebody on the phone but this still does not work. when i plug my lifecam into the USB port it comes up saying : installing device driver software and then after a while it fails. I wondered if you had any solutions for this problem ?

    Same here.
    I went to the Microsoft site and downloaded a driver for it.
    But, now the driver instal is taking for-freakin-ever.

    It's STILL going. Been like, 20 minutes.
    I've watched the blue status bar get to 100%, like, 50 times.

You're not alone, I have the same problem, after about a dozen attempted installs, I think I will send it back to Walmart. After 2 HOURS, the stopped the installation. (120 minutes is more than "several" minutes). I have Win XP. Every piece of hardware and software that I have installed on this computer, installed with little or no problem. I guess my laptop doesn't like webcams!

Microsoft lifecam 1000

You can download the driver here :-
the camera has a built in microphone,so after a proper installation you should have the video and mic funtioning.
but in your case, the cam doesn't work, so you have to try first uninstall the driver >> unplug the camera USB port >> then make a restart >> plud the camera back into the usb >> and install the drivers again.
