IBM-PC Camera Upgrades

Smokey says:
I have a decent IBM PC Camera by Xirline that worked well with Windows 95-98.

Now I am running a 1.8 Gig Dell with Windows XP. The old drivers just don't cut the mustard.
There is a site at http://www.cameratechsupport.com/ibm/
that provides the XP upgraded driver. But the site doesn't work. No amount of email to webmaster has helped.

Anyone found an updated driver source?

What model is the camera? If it is an IBM or OEM for IBM, like an Ultraport, IBM has drivers for it. If not, you could try CNET Downloads and see if you can find it there.

Might keep an eye on the manufactures web site:
http://www.xirlink.com/earthlink/digicamsdrivers_pc.htm
All they have now is Win2k but it might work.

Smokey, I was able to download the driver: right click the gif download button, choose save as. True, the graphical progress meter bar doesn't work, but the download did. My listing: F:\OP\IBMV50~1 EXE 2,630,144 03-25-02

if you have xp you probably have windows update in your start menu somewhere click on it and it will go to internet explorer and it will search your computer for drivers and critical updates for xp and just choose which ones you want to upgrade and hit download and there you go.

Thanks for all the input! Old Smokey appreciates your help!

Nothing seemed to work, though.

Hey, 2000, would you be interested in sending the updated driver by email?
