    Welcome to TSG, mtlw. Googling your eMachine, it shows that the computer has Windows 7 on it. Sorry to say, but according to Microsoft's Compatibility Website, that model webcam is not compatible and will not work with Windows 7.

    On D-Link's website, it says that they discontinued that model camera back in 2006, there are no vista drivers, let alone windows 7 drivers. I would have to suggest purchasing a new camera.

    MOD EDIT: Link removed due to fake download resulting in junk software installing

    I've removed the link as the download actually contains DriverDetective garbage rather than a real driver.
