It's a Vivitar Vivicam 3750, and the thing works GREAT, and the webcam mode did too even though I haven't used it that much...but as they say, Vista changes everything. Now I try to activate Webcam mode, and it can't find the drivers. This is a camera from 2004, so the drivers on the CD won't work, I tried. Anything else I can try?

If the manufacturer has a web site with drivers to download, I would start there. Otherwise...you might be out of luck. You're looking for Vista-compatible drivers.

They don't even list that model on their support page (meaning they consider it too old to fool with). You can call their support number though as revelated said above, but my guess is they didn't bother to fool with Vista drivers on an older model like that.

Don't know your budget, but you can get dedicated web cams for as little as $15 these days (not great ones at that price, but they work).
