6 LED webcam driver
#1
Reinstalled my OS and now can't find the driver I need for my webcam. It looks exactly like this https://www.google.co.uk/search?q=6+led+usb+digital+web+camera+with+microphone&espv=210&es_sm=93&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ei=rYfAUuLaLKeI0AWLq4GwDg&ved=0CAkQ_AUoAQ&biw=1440&bih=765#facrc=_&imgdii=_&imgrc=f2JihIJztnQo4M%3A%3B3lW_j9snbJzXYM%3Bhttp%253A%252F%252Fecx.images-amazon.com%252Fimages%252FI%252F41NZ3DU160L._SY300_.jpg%3Bhttp%253A%252F%252Fwww.amazon.com%252FDigital-Camera-Webcam-Microphone-Notebook%252Fdp%252FB003ZCDKU2%3B300%3B300

and it has a microphone, probably around 2-5mp.

Only has one screw on the back and couldn't open it to find out the chip number. I tried the vimicro detect but it wouldn't run. It's called USB20 camera in device manager and this is the device instance path - USB\VID_0C45&PID_6270\5&1FCD7CB6&0&4


Can anyone help me? Thanks.

pretty sure thats the older sn9c201 sonix chipset.
now sonix no longer support that but i did download all the last drivers for that chipset and they can be found here.

Thanks, I tried one of those but it hasn't worked for me. I have tried quite a few other drivers so maybe I need to remove these first but I'm not sure how to, they aren't in uninstall programs. I also have 64 bit win7 so hope that isn't why. I would do system restore but since I have just installed I have installed a lot of programs in that time.

Oh and I did turn off AV and firewall.

EDIT - Using the oldest driver I had got the pc to recognise the webcam. The problem now is that in skype on the webcam settings it shows my webcam name but the box under it is black with an everlasting loading circle. It allows me to turn on the LEDs though. I am hoping I didn't damage it when I was trying to remove the back case to see the chip. Maybe I will try a newer driver.

before you do that try the webcam wizard built in to Skype.
it use to be listed under tools before Microsoft got their hands on the rights for that program.
you can also check under control panel, devices and printers.
it should list the cam there, if it does double click it and it should give you a windows pre view of what the picture is like.

few other things, make sure your using a main usb port and not a hub or front port as they really don't get enough power to run.

and after checking windows update Microsoft do have their own drivers for that chipset listed so you can go in to device manager, right click on the cam and click update driver
allow windows to search online when asked.
