a m8 has gone off to australia and he has 3 digital cameras but he sent one to me (the dumbest one) as he doesnt want it and i need a webcam...but what he forgot to send me with the camera is the drivers...(cds)
so yeah i have a camera here with the cord but nothing to install it on the computer with..

Just plug it in anyway, WinXP's native camera wizard should work fine for downloading your images off it.

You should be able to get the software from Mustek. I picked up a GSmart300 cheaply, and had no problem getting the software. (Download/webcam). My problem is the USB cable. It's the "other" mini USB connector. I've got the Kodak 4 pin one, the Canon/HP/etc 5 pin one ... Mustek used a "very mini" 4 pin rectangular connector at the camera end.

The first and third links you get with "gsmartmini download" to Google will be helpful. :D

I think I'll be soldering a new connector to mine. :D
