do you have a picture of this cam ?
what windows are you running ?
ok thats a newer 6 led cam running a vimico or a sonix chip.
trouble is which one.
i am sorry to say your going to have to remove the rear case and note down the chip make and number.
if you remove the four x head screws the case will come apart without too much trouble.
look on the control board for a 1cm square chip.
note down everything on that chip and post it back here.
its ok i can see from your image its using the sn9c201 chip.
i have that driver in the above link or you can download from sonix.
sorry can't read that error from your image.
go in to add remove programs.
remove the cam driver, and any other driver you have loaded to date and restart the pc.
when windows has restarted try the following.
shut down any anti virus software your running and any firewall , anti spyware.
unplug the cam.
now install the driver.
when it ask's for the cam to be contected please do so but don't use the same usb port move down or up one so windows can see its a new device.
when its finished open up msn messenger or yahoo messenger or what ever imp you use and run the cam wizard.
the amcap part of the icatch driver really is a pile off poo: so best to skip that and use your imp to do the work for you.
I still have the same problem, i will try the updated drivers now.
and yeah, sure no problem you can use the photograph.
ok if the update drivers fail to get it working try the cam on another pc or laptop.
i am 100% sure that is the correct driver, if it still fails to work on another pc send the cam back for a replacement as it has a fault.
think you have been sent a faulty cam, may explan why the disk was damaged in the first place.
send the cam back but don't tell the seller you have taken it apart to find its chip number.
just explan that after hours of trying you can not get the cam working and will they replace it or test it if you send it back.
thats the same driver different version thats a early version.
the one listed at sonix is 5.7.22.000_WHQL
which has under gone the windows testing by microsoft..
the new driver should have worked with that cam as well.
In case you didn't have or grab that driver Dave, I knobbled it.
hmm where can i get that older driver? tried loads of drivers for mine and non work so do no harm to try older one...tryed getting from the above link and it says File Download . . .
