I'm sure you guys have posted like 398745809345309856 replies to problems with maxell webcams, but i think mine is slightly unique...

I have a Maxell Maxcam Plus Webcam, and it worked great on my HP laptop that ran windows XP...but someone jacked my laptop, so now all i've got is my desktop (also running XP)

I still have my webcam, of course, and i tried plugging it in today..."CIF Single Chip Found!"...but there the computer stopped recognizing that i had just plugged my once working webcam into it

It doesn't register the camera in "my computer" at all, and the control panel doesn't register it as a camera (just the single chip stuff again)...

Unfortunately, my computer did not install the software automatically as my laptop had.
I've searched for the drivers for this thing ALL DAY and NONE of the ones on driverguide.com work...

Regretably, i've lost the original installation disk...

Anyone got any ideas, or should i buy a new webcam?
