There is no such thing as off-topic here at SVFIG-OPEN!!!

I have questions and several pieces of advice.  Please email directly with 
answers to questions if you prefer.  It's free advice, and perhaps worth 
what you paid for it.

First the questions.
Do you have other USB devices which DO work?(1)  (it doesn't mean that the 
camera SHOULD work, just an indication of what needs to be tested and/or fixed)
What OS are you running( look in |Help|About )?(2)  WIN98 SE?(2.1)  Do you 
have the original distribution CD?(3)  Please note that it would be best to 
have the files that match your OS because there are frequently different 

  I can probably get the files when I know which OS you're running.

Advice 1) Try Alta Vista to search the web in addition to googling Usenet.

Advice B) These are a couple of websites which address similiar problems

Advice III ) When in danger or in doubt, run in circles, scream and shout.
      - Dr. Richard Ames,"The Cat Who Walks Through Walls" (by Robert Heinlein)


Advice N where N is a large integer) I can probably get the files when I 
know which OS you're running

Advice N + 1 ) If you can't resolve it after installing the files, please 
post to the regular SVFIG list.

Would you consider discussing this briefly at the December FIG meeting?
