    webcam drivers

    I recently installed windows 8 on my mac mini. A couple hiccups were partition sizing, I had to cleanup enough space and basically choose a smaller partition size for the small mini hard drive (50GB). Then I came up with the unexpected error message upon installation. I reran the installation from the DVD and this time the screen went blank. I restarted and it looked like it was going to logon but then the screen went blank again. I then took the DVI - to HDMI/apple mini cable off and replaced it with DVI - DVI / to apple mini connection. Rebooted and wa la i was able to boot up properly. It seemed stable at first but then on occasion it will freeze for no apparent reason. Never once had this problem with windows 7. I then tried to install the Logitech C310 webcam drivers manually because windows 8 didn't recognize the device. A message came back that said this device is not supported on this operating system and would not allow me to proceed.

    Are there any generic webcam drivers that will allow this C310 webcam to operate in Windows 8 at this time?

    I haven't tried the webcam on the new PC (ASUS M5A88-V EVO) but I suspect I'll have the same problem. Any help would be appreciated.

    I unplugged and plugged the USB cable back in rebooted and its working like a charm. However, Windows 8 on the mac mini is not stable it freezes either 10 minutes after rebooting or 50 minutes later. Apparently its telling me that the 2nd core drivers are not installed. I'm still investigating

    Windows 8 64-bit consumer preview loads fine on the mac mini early 2009. However, after finally installing bootcamp 64 it locks constantly and is worthless. Windows 7 64bit was flawless. No solution thus far.

    P.S. It was not freezing before I installed bootcamp. But I had no audio sound whatsoever. If anyone has an update besides install the 32-bit version then that would be great.

    Since it was NOT crashing before bootcamp maybe someone can tell us how to manually install the audio drivers?

    I also tried to install some drivers manually )) but my brother-in-law (he’s an IT guy) recommended a thing called Fixio Driver Finder. it's a program that will determine your system, and will download drivers specifically to it Fixio Driver Finder: Free Scan
