    USB Racecam Help

    I recently upgraded my PC to Windows 7, but now my drivers for my Dogcam Pro USB racecam are no longer supported; as you can already tell I am now looking for a new race camera and need some help.

    It has got to be USB powered and able to live stream to the PC (basically a webcam) but also easily mountable, tough and have very good picture quality and frame rate (a built-in mic would be a bonus).
    I keep shying away from normal webcams as I'm worried about the picture quality and the abuse they'll probably recieve.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Here's a link to a thread on my project so far... click here

    Hi Mate,

    Have you checked the manufacturers website to see if they have released any new drivers, may be worth a shot.

    I've tried that, they say they have no plans to update the drivers to support windows 7

    Do they still sell this model of RaceCam?

    If so thats bad crack, not even planning on updating the drivers for windows 7.
    Think how many people could buy this then find out it's no use for them.

    The model of camera has been discontinued so no-one will get caught out... except people like me.
    GoPro have some nice cameras but they say that, even though they will charge off a USB input and exchange data, they will not live stream like a webcam.

    Is the webcam unrecognized in Windows 7 or does it load the generic Microsoft driver? If it doesn't recognize it, what's the VID and PID?
