Hi,
Thanks for the question.
Have you tried Restarting your computer.?
If you have right software then download this software. and see if this is able to play the webcam..

http://www.yawcam.com/download.php

Its free..

If that doesnt help then get back to me with your model number and I will make sure that you are downloading right driver.

Go here and see which one is your model.
select the model then go to download and select VISTA and select your system.

Please try to install the driver again and get back to me if this doesnt work.

So now when I plug in my webcam a pop up comes up saying USB device not recognized. Under device status it says "No drivers are installed for this device."

Hi,

Do you have the CD that it came with?
Try to install the driver again from the CD and see if the problem persists.

If you dont have a CD then you should try again from the website or you can download one from here.
