here is a new chipset number for you all to ponder, :/
I have spent a day and a half now looking for a driver. maybe there is an equivalent for it?
ARK 3299 FPF
this is how it is printed on chip......this is the 20 mega pixel currently being offered.....LOL for 5 dollars I just had to learn my own lesson. it says 98se
compatible, but........no dice. Thanks

thanks for your response. the funny thing is that I tried to install this on
Win 98se and Win ME. both OS's think this is a Kodak digital camera...LOL
and 98se keeps wanting to install it as a USB audio device. So I can not get the "driver file details" at all........
I have read thru many threads pertaining to these Ebay webcams and have tried some of the suggested drivers but to no avail........one thing tho, the LED lights on this do work, there is a small variable thumb control on the cable that makes the lights dim/bright, so power is coming thru the USB connection......hmm, well I'll keep trying to search google......

any luck on the device id string ?
without a doubt win 98se and win me will need a driver,
windows me is part xp anyway, and does see more then windows 98se, but its still a bit too out of date to be of much use,
windows 7 might be able to id that cam better, if you know anyone with windows 7 ask them if they would plug it in and see if it loads a driver direct from windows update.
Im trying to install this webcam to vista pack 2 >.< and this comes up

This is what I can tell you
USB20 Camera USB\VID_0C45&PID_627B\5&428A151&0&2 The drivers for this device are not installed.
In device manager
There is nothing on the actual chip. The PCB has written
I am tring to install it on a windows 7 64bit (am I insane?)
thats strange the driver you used is a asus driver from one of their laptops.
i will keep it just in case.
that cam is being shipped witout a driver disk so it should auto load the driver direct from windows update.
please try doing this so you get a clean install of the driver.
unplug the cam and restart your pc.
shut down any firewall and anti-virus software you may be running.
now plug the cam in to a different usb port then the one you have been using.
allow windows to auto load that cam again.
once install open any IM program such as messenger or skype etc.
run the cam wizard from inside that program.
that will auto adjust the cam.
if you still have problems post back as i have found that device id string on the jap site dvrsky but i need to translate a little more, most of what i have translated say its auto load driver less.
Hi, I recently bought a Ebay Webcam and I need help on using it. :O

I have received the webcam, but I need the drivers for it. The links on the little paper inside the package are not drivers, they are for webcam software. I need the drivers because with Vista generic drivers the cam does not operate. Please send me instructions how to download drivers for this camera, and how to make it display 20mp. When I get the correct drivers I will leave feedback.
eldavar did the seller give you a driver disk when you bought the cam ?
