    I went to Creative to get drivers for my webcam, it shows a section for Vista, and my camera, but when i click them, it says drivers can't be found.

    Can I install XP drivers in Vista? They said there is no development planned for this certain webcam too....

    Some devices that aren't compatible with Vista right now are working without issue using XP drivers.

    I thought the file couldn't be found on the webserver.
    Now I see you meant drivers while installing hardware.

    Sorry, Mondays....

    I managed to install my Quick Cam Pro 4000, using lastest drivers for XP: the webcam is installed correclty but doesn't work at all. I then installed Vista compatible drivers for the Quick Cam Pro 5000 et voila, my QCP4000 works like a charm :eek:)
