    first off, this isn't a new one. I bought it at a thrift store for a dollar. my only requirements were that it worked, which it did...once. Now the cam is detected and shows up in Device Manager, but nothing will connect to it. I installed the drivers and it was like the camera said "Okay I'll show you whhat I can do, and then screw you."

    it's frustrating because I have a USB floppy drive that works with no issues whatsoever. but this camera still refuses to work after the first time.

    I found this forum via searching and at least I found the device ID in Device Manager.
    so is there any kind of generic whatever I can use to make this thing work?

    Are you sure there the manufacturer has created a Windows 10 compatible driver?

    What is the make and model number of the webcam?
