USB20 Camera
Hi there,

I am experiencing a problem connect my USB camera to my laptop. Last time I used it, it connected without any drivers, however now it is looking for a CD or location. However I bought this camera 8 years ago, and have since moved country so I definitely cannot find the CD!

I have been reading other posts, and figured out that for someone to help me I would need to find the device instance ID of the device, so here it is:-


My system info is pasted below if that helps

Thank you!

Hi thank you for the link. The link showed drivers. How do I know ehich one to use?

I clicked on the first one, ran the file etc. But when I went back into device manager, the camera is still showing up with a yellow error symbol. I'm not a computer expert! How do I link the driver I just downloaded to the camera? Probably sounds like a stupid question, but I don't know how to do it.

Thank you
