Where could I find a generic webcam driver that would work with any webcam? I'm trying to install an old Logitech quick-cam chat webcam onto my laptop (which currently has a webcam), but can't find any drivers that work, even on the Logitech website.
According to Logitech, this camera is the QuickCam Chat camera and this camera is the Quick Camera Chat for Skype. I'm not saying that one of these is the same as YOUR camera, but these are the ones that Logitech called "Chat" by name.
Now, wherever you got the Serial number from, there should also be a MODEL number, or M/N:. Logitech was quite thorough about that. I've got a really old Logitech Clicksmart 310 sitting here in front of me, and they were making sure to include the model number even back then.
Have you tried the Logitech Autodetection feature? Just choose Option 1 and allow the software to install, and detect the camera. Make sure the camera is plugged into the computer.
EDIT: I've found two different sites selling the same serial number, but what appears to be a different appearance. This one matches the first link at Logitech I gave you and This one which doesn't match either image at Logitech, but most likely has the same internal hardware. This leads me to believe that the first link I gave you is the right one.... so the drivers for M/N:V-UAP42 should do the trick.
