Windows Lifecam 1.4 No Longer Working. Device Driver Not Found

    Question

  • I have an external webcam (Windows Lifecam) that has worked fine on my system (Vista 32bit) for the last year. Now it will not recognise the hardware and fails to locate the drivers from the instillation disk. I have already downloaded the WHLQ and it still does not find any driver software. I have found no other drivers for my particular model. That being said I am by no means computer savvy and am unaware as to whether a newer driver for the same line of products would work. ANY help you could give me would be great. Thank you.

    Well, that did not work. I have a lifecam 1.4 and win 7 Home premium 64 bit. The drivers on the disc are not compatible and there's no drivers to download from microsoft. What to do now?

  • HI all,

    I have a problem similar to the above, i installed windows 8 in my Desktop PC after that my Lifecam 1.4 do not work. I don't find any drivers for the same to make it work in Windows 8. Can any one suggest a compatible driver or a work around. Is Microsoft coming up with any compatible drivers for such cams?!! I really didn't want to buy another cam!

  • Same deal. I just went to use Skype, and....no Lifecam!

    Went to look at the cam through it's own software....cam not there!!!

    Checked devices - just trying to use generic usb driver.

    Removed and reinstalled....can't install driver!

    What gives, MS?


    PS I'm using latest Lifecam software & drivers....
