    Hi - I wonder if you guys can help. It is a boring old missing file - I need
    USBAUDIO.SYS
    I have scanned my C drive - I have looked both on my windows install disk and also my SP2 disk and have done multiple search's on google. I just can't find this file. I need it to get the audio on my web cam to work and I contact Logitech and they couldn't help either. Surely it can't be the elusive?
    Cheers for any help.

    It should normally be found in the c:\windows\system32\drivers

    folder.


    That said, I am uploading a zipped copy of the file.

    On the XP SP2 disk you would have to look for

    usbaudio.sy_

    And that file would have to be copied using the following command:

    expand [driveletter]:\I386\usbaudio.sy_ c:\windows\system32\drivers\usbaudio.sys

    Thanks very much for that advice - when I get home tonight I will delve into it once more.

    Hello.
    I have similar problem but with Windows 2000 Pro.
    Bought Logitech QuickCam for Notebooks webcam. Dowloaded latest QuickCam software because one which cames with camera is ages old.
    When i plug in the camera Windows discovers new devices like it should.
    But there is one catch - when it gets to install drivers for "Logitech Mic" he asks me to provide usbaudio.sys file which i can't find.
    I have throughly checked Windows install CD and there is no such file. I also downloaded SP4 and checked it with the same results :confused:
    Where is this file???? Logitech does not provides it. WinXP has it by default but i don't think i can get it somewhere for Win 2000.
    Hardware is HP compaq nc6000 series laptop with SoundMAX audio.
    Any ideas where i could obtain this file? I don't think WinXP version will do.

    UPDATED:
    Found it myself. Some Google search helped.
    I did not looked into driver.cab file on Windows 2000 install CD, usbaudio.sys was there.
    Case solved.
