Question about Creative Labs PC-Cam 880 Digital Camera

PC-CAM 880 - remember Webcam mode

I own for more than a year a Creative PC-CAM 880 camera installed in a Windows XP SP2 system. When the camera is attached to my computer through the USB interface, is always recognized under "My Computer" as a removable disk (red light on) and when I press the Mode button, disappears as removable disk and reappears as 2 separate devices - "Creative PC-CAM 880 (Camera)" and "Creative PC-CAM 880 (Video)" (green light on). The thing is that even if I don't remove the camera from the USB port, every time that my computer restarts, the camera is always recognized as a removable disk. I would like to know if there is a way to make Windows XP remember my camera's mode used for last when the system starts again. I was wondering also if the same thing happens with other users of the same camera.

Uninstall all reference drivers to camera, reboot then install drivers again AFTER you hook the camera up to your computer.

Drivers can be found by clicking HERE.

Mercury camera driver


Hello! I have not used my cam as Webcam for many years, but I think all you have to do is connect the cam with PC, move the SELECT NOB / SWITCH on WEBCAM mood and the Windows (XP) will automatically detect NEW HARDWARE (Webcam). Provide the drivers information and files from the disk and you are done.

BTW, its webcam result is not as good as its still picture quality.

Best of Luck

Camera doesnt work


Sorry talhahs, creative has not written Vista compatible driver software for you're PC-Cam 350 camera. Hence you're camera will not function with any version of Vista.
There are few SD readers currently that are compatible with Vista. Click on this link to see one type.

A card reader that will help you in transferring pictures from you’re camera to you’re PC while using Vista.
Win XP, unlike Vista will still run program software even if it has not passed MS's compatability.

Good Luck!
