    Hi everyone,

    I hope you can help me with my problem. My logitech webcam (this model: QuickCam® Chat ) Still dates from my xp time. My problem now is that my webcam will not work on windows 7.
    I tested it on my other computer, witch still has xp, and there it does work. I checked on the logitech website to check for any vista drivers that could work on my windows 7 as well. Unfortunatly there were only drivers available for this perticular model for windows xp.

    The webcam shows in devicemanager, but does not seem to detect during installation. This is what I tried so far:

    1. Put my webcam in a different USB - port
    2. Installed a driver for a more recent model of webcam
    3. Uninstalled an reinstalled the xp driver for this model
    4. Tried updating with windows update, but failed to update - Updated manually, but still no camera detected.
    5. Did an full uninstall for my webcam and started on cleanboot

    If any one has any idea what I could try to make it work again, any suggestion are very welcome. And no, i'm not intending to buy a new cam, as long as I know this one should work :p

    Thank you all in advance :)
