Hit or Miss

Upgrades.

I’ve spent the past few days installing Windows 2000 on my home desktop. So far it has proven to be remarkable stable, but unfortunately it doesn’t support either of the 2 webcams I own, so I’ll have to buy a new one.

Matt –

what kinds of cams do you have? Ours was not supported by Win2K, but I was able to find a patch through one of the driver update message boards. We are still using our “officially” unsupported Quickcam VC on Win2K, and the picture still looks MUCH better than my stinkin’ Quickcam Express. Anybody wanna buy a camera?

I keep getting emails asking me where I got the patch — y’all need to go to http://www.ntcompatible.com/qb.shtml — this has a downloadable patch for the USB cam, and directions for installing software to get the parallel cam to run. Good luck everybody !
