|I just bought a Xenta TA-988-8MEG 4MPix Video Webcam. This device is DRIVERLESS and uses the so called generic drives found in windows. I have Windows 7 Ultimate (64) sp1. it thinks it is fully updated.|
I plug the device into a USB socket and it installs the camera, as expected. However It is able to install the mic. Windows attempts to install it but throws a "Fail" error saying it "cannot find the file specified".
I tried Update Driver but as that is essentially the same mechanism as the install it also gets nowhere. Again it finds the so called driver software for the device (USB Audio Device) but throws an error saying "the system cannot find the file specified".
A windows update finds nothing and Obviously as the device is DRIVERLESS there is nothing on the manufacturers website.
I checked the device on my laptop which runs Vista 32 and it installs fine so i am firmly pointing the finger at Windows for this problem.
Windows-fixit discovered that there is a driver issue (ie that there isn't a driver) but it was unable to fix it (ie find the so called generic driver) and my google-fu hasn't managed to find anything helpful so i am stumped.
Anyone got any idears? Thanks in advance.
