Ahhh - the joys of USB camera's.

In general, the later USB2 camera's contain their driver software and load it automatically as part of the device recognition procedure.

As I found, this does not always work as intended and it took me 3 different camera's before success was achieved - this thread relates http://www.machsupport.com/forum/index.php/topic,22932.msg161339.html#msg161339

If it's any help a general camera driver has been attached.

Thank you for your help but the driver did not match my camera

Hi teck low teck work around
The camera works on xp so I went across to the office and grabbed an old xp machine from the cupboard (office must have the latest tecke kit) fixed it up next to the mill and  I am able to display camera image full screen. One slight flaw there is a bit of parallax error from the black cotton that I have used to create the cross hair (just got to modify the recently created wall bracket a bit)
