Michael,thank you so much for answering me so soon.I really appreciate your time! Just now,when I tried to download that driver,I got a message that said,"An error occured while trying to install this file",or something to that sort.I don't know what I have done now! LOL

Try this right click first on download and then click on properties find the tab that says compatibility select on windows 98.... See if it will install then. I'll be on for a bit so let me know if it worked and if not we''ll work it out.

Michael,I did exactly what you told me to do and still no banana! But I will tell you that I went crazy a few days ago,trying to get this resolved on my own and I deleted things that may not should have been deleted.LOL As you can probably tell,I just know enough about computers to be dangerous.hahahhahaha As a matter of fact,the jury is still out as to whether redneck women from Oklahoma,like me,should even have one of the dern things.lol

Got this info from a good friend--- A pal---- a bro----- lol

Go to the Windows Update Site and select "Custom"...it'll detect the Creative Webcam and call it something else...not to worry about that and just install the driver...Hey Presto it works. Try it red neck the info came from someone who knows! lol and he's probably cracking up now reading this thread.... Let us both know how you make out!

Thx Dave T haha

Michael and Dave,you guys(or in Redneck language,YALL)have made me happier than a tornado in a trailer park!!! It works!!!! I am one happy redneck woman!!!! Now,my 2 yr old grandson will be so happy when he wakes up from his nap today.The little man has been so sad because he could hear me but not see me.His parents moved to Connecticut from Oklahoma and actually took him too! Can you believe that?? lol If you two ever come to Oklahoma,I could use your help here.My neighbors just bought a new house and we need to take the wheels off of it.And now that my webcam is working,we can post it on Youtube! Yee Haw!!!!!!

We aim to please for your enjoyment of making your grandson a happy little redneck camper......hahaha And by the way I might be a redneck too because I no longer drink wine ever since the screw cap got caught up my nose.

I'll tell Dave the good news or maybe he'll show his self and tell you him self!

Michael,that wine cap thing sounds dangerous-be careful! As for myself,I like a good game of,"Take a big swig of beer and try to burp your name game"! Whooo hooo! I'm just glad my name ain't Samantha or I'd never win. P.S.Thanks again Dave!

This is the correct link for the Driver and software needed for the Creative Webcam instant (VF-0040)

http://support.creative.com/Products...me=Web+Cameras

You will need to download the Driver which is applicable to your system, 32bit or 64bit.

64 BIT:
Creative WebCam Instant x64 driver Version 2.00.04.0825
Filesize : 2.06 MB - Release date : 28 Sep 05
File Name : WCIS_PCDrv_US_2_00_04_0825.EXE
This is the latest driver release for Creative WebCam Instant.


32 BIT:
Creative WebCam Instant driver update v1.01.02.0729
Filesize : 617.74 KB - Release date : 31 Aug 04
File Name : WCIS_PCDrv_US_1_01_02_0729.EXE
This is the latest driver release for Creative WebCam Instant.


Requirements:

Microsoft Windows® XP, Windows 2000, Windows Millennium (Me) or Windows 98/98 Second Edition (SE).
Notes:

This driver is WHQL certified and is tested on Creative WebCam Instant only.

Then you will need to download and install the software to use this Webcam.

Creative WebCam Center 1.71.02
Filesize : 23.77 MB - Release date : 13 Jan 06


I have just downloaded both of these 2 files, change the compatability to Win XP and run them as Administrator, due to the fact that I'm on Vista.

All worked fine, even though the webcam is rubbish and old :p

Regards

Wofty
