    I have a WINSTAR PC Camera Model # WS-CAM711
    I cannot find a driver for this camera on the WINSTAR site.
    Can anyone help me locate the driver?
    Thanks
    Harry

    Most of their cameras appear to be driverless. That model number doesn't appear to be correct, either. Does the camera work at all? Is it detected by the wizard?

    Or try here.

    Follow the instruction here. You will need the information off the label on the camera to get the correct driver. You could also try downloading all the drivers and trying them one at a time to see which one works.

    First I want to Thank each of you that responded to my call for help.

    (1) Model # WS-Cam711 is listed on Winstar products page. I have clicked on the product and
    they give a list of possible drivers, but when you select one and open it it is in an Asian dialect,
    and does nothing else.
    (2) I have gone to each of your suggested link pages and have not succeeded in downloading
    the needed drivers.
    (3) The camera does not appear in control panel, nor does it appear in hardware devices.
    (4) There is no search for a new item on computer boot up.

    I have e-mailed Support at winstar and while waiting I'll try the camera on a friends computer.
    If I get a good solution I'll post it, possibly to help others.
    Thanks again.
    Harry
