You can always Google the webcam model you are trying to install drivers for and download them. Then you can focus on getting your drive to work after it's installed ;)

It shouldn't be the drivers that are making it blurry.... it should either be the resolution your seeing (aka) your webcam isn't good with larger resolutions.... OR you recieved a defective cam or it broke some how...

 

 

 

As for your CD Drive what OS are you using?

 

If your using vista I've heard about something you can do in the registry to make it work again.... Unfortunate the fix is only temporary....

 

The best fix is to just buy a new CD-DVD drive... I got my new drive from: NewEgg.com

Any software that needs to be installed for the cam to work is probably just drivers. Plug the thing in and let it install itself automatically. Any of the proprietary software can probably be DL'ed or you can just download manycam or some other free program.

 

As far as your CD drive goes, it sounds like it is dead. You probably have to purchase a new one.

Important: This section, method, or task contains steps that tell you how to modify the registry. However, serious problems might occur if you modify the registry incorrectly. Therefore, make sure that you follow these steps carefully. For added protection, back up the registry before you modify it. Then, you can restore the registry if a problem occurs. For more information about how to back up and restore the registry, click the following article number to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:

322756 How to back up and restore the registry in Windows

 

This problem is caused by two Windows registry entries that have become corrupted. To fix the problem, you have to use Registry Editor to delete the corrupted Registry entries. To use this method, you must be logged on to Windows as an administrator. If you need help verifying that you are an administrator, visit the following Microsoft Web site:

In the right pane, click UpperFilters.
