    ohh I have one too .. I have tried this but it does not work in the step you say :

    "...1Window should say "Installing driver software". .."

    it says :

    "windows was unable to install your usb camera

    windows could not find driver software for your device ..........
    "

    I have the zip from the link and I have unzip and point the driver update to that directory... :p

    T J,

    That worked a treat for my Toucam Pro on Windows 7 (i.e. the Vista drivers work on W7)

    THANK YOU!! :razz:

    I had this problem when I switched over to Vista. I'm on Windows 7 now, and have got the webcam working. Here's how:

    1. Go to the Philips website and download the Win7 driver for the SPC900 webcam.

    2. Install the driver software. You may need to reboot.

    3. Go to the folder C:\Program Files (x86)\Philips\Philips SPC900NC PC Camera

    4. open the file Camvid40.inf with Notepad.

    5. Make the following changes... (in the menu select View->Status Bar to see line numbers)

    Edit line 66 to look like this:
    %USBVid.DeviceDesc%=USBVidx86,USB\VID_0471&PID_0311&MI_00

    Edit line 69 to look like this:
    %USBVid.DeviceDesc%=USBVidXp64,USB\VID_0471&PID_0311&MI_00

    Edit line 72 to look like this:
    %USBVid.DeviceDesc%=USBVidVista64,USB\VID_0471&PID _0311&MI_00

    6. Save the file.

    7. In the Start Menu, right-click Computer and select Properties. In the list on the left select Device Manager.

    8. You should see a item in the list with a yellow exclaimation dot and the words Unknown Device. This should be your webcam. Confirm this but unplugging it from the pc - it should disappear from the list.

    9. Right-click the Unknown Device and select Update Driver Software. Select Browse my computer and then Browse to C:\Program Files (x86)\Philips\Philips SPC900NC PC Camera. Tick Include subfolders and click Next.

    10. If all goes according to plan it should detect the webcam and install it. Rejoice!

    Hey,
    I tried this method to install my Philips ToU Cam Fun II.
    But I can't get it to work.
    It always says driver unknown....

    I have an Windows 7 Home Premium Service Pack 1 64-bit.

    What must I do now?

    Thanks in advance.
