Default Identifying the webcam model - 11-17-2008, 01:10 AM

(Win XP)

I have the 1.3 mpixel webcam but all i can figure out is that it is made by Creative.

Does anyone know how to identify which model it is?

I want to try replacing the crappy Dell webcam software with something from Creative, but I don't know which model to try.

I recently switched to the generic Synaptics driver for the touchpad and found that much better than the one that Dell supplied so I am hoping the same is true for the webcam.

Maybe the Linux folks have had to figure out which webcam Dell is using?
