    SORRY TOPIC TITLE SHOULD SAY OLD WEBCAM, NEW COMPUTER

    Alright, I just bought a new computer about a week ago and everything is great, except for one problem. My older webcam doesn't work. Its a Gigaware 25-234, and I can't find Windows 7 drivers for the cam. With my old xp drivers it recognizes it as a microphone, but not as a camera. Anybody have any ideas?

    I'm hoping to avoid that, as I have quite a few bills this month

    I would tend to agree with DoubleHelix. though one question, does the site for your webcam have a driver for Vista? If so that should work in Win 7.
