Webcam driver

Have been given a webcam/mic but without the driver cd so it will not function. It is unused but has no manufacturers details. Davidoff Hot Water is the only inscription so it was a freebie from that fragrances Company. Have searched web but to no avail. Would be grateful for any ideas as to where I might aquire a driver.

Had similar problem last week see this thread

in device manager look at the properties of the USB camera and details tab make a note of the Hardware Id number and google this number for the drivers.

Thanks for the guidance. I found the ID and through Google managed a possible ident as an oldish MSI device. Unfortunately, MSI couldn't provide a driver for Vista, by which time I was losing the will to live so have given up the search. Nevertheless the help is much appreciated.
