Comment on How to get an old webcam to work with Windows 7 (D-link DSB C310 Windows 7 Driver OV519 Chipset) by admin https://blog.thepcmechanic.org/?p=30#comment-46649 Sun, 29 Mar 2015 01:43:26 +0000 http://blog.thepcmechanic.org/?p=30#comment-46649 Hi,

The path is C:\Users\YOURUSERNAME\AppData\Local\Temp, so if you use “natasa” as your username the path will be:
C:\Users\natasa\AppData\Local\Temp

This is for Windows 7. What OS are you using?

First of all I cannot finish installing process at all as it asks for CD or the right path.
When I try to find in temp files the serial number or a line of numbers and letters in order to manually install it I don`t find there anything as it shows it is empty folder.I cannot even find the right path as when I go to C/users/my name/there is no Appdata at all?
How to install this cam driver as I know it is possible.Once that trick worked out for me but it wasn`t me who did it, so now I don“t know what to do.Please if someone can help me, I need my camera ready to use quickly.Thanks

For some reason, my EyeToy camera had a different hardware ID than what the .inf file thinks.

In the “hclassic.inf” you have this:
“%USB.DeviceDesc% = OVT.PCamMic,USB\VID_054C&PID_0154”
(It is also repeated a couple of times for different OS versions. I changed all)

And, if I look at my EyeToy in device manager/advanced/serious/supergeeky/
then i find this:
“VID_054C&PID_0154&REV_0100&MI_00”

Made the ID’s match in “hclassic.inf” and VOILA!

Thought it might help someone else with the same problem. (Or maybe it’s just me, it usually is…)

Having an X58 board, there were not a lot of options for PCI-e slots. It was starting to come down to building another rig with a new mobo/processor or just not getting another card. I think this is simple enough that even I can do it ; )

Hi Mr Studd. I am sorry you feel lost.
Is there anything in particular that is not working for you?

Don’t give up!
