Phillips TouCam PCVC740K

Post by Hazmat9 » Wed Jun 13, 2018 3:04 am

Hello,

I'm new here and was wondering if this software would work with a Phillips TouCam PCVC740K? I hooked it up and selected "Camera" option and did a scan, nothing happened nor did the program detect it. Was wondering if I did something wrong since the description of the software said it detects almost all types of cameras. If it doesn't work, any suggestions on a capture program that might work? Thanks, Steve

Hi,

I think you will need to find drivers for the camera which might be an interesting challenge for modern versions of Windows as the camera is so old. The driver page for the camera here - https://www.philips.co.uk/c-p/PCVC740K/-/support - only has drivers up to WinXP, which probably will not work with Windows Vista and newer and certainly won't work with 64 bit versions of Windows.

I believe that it is possible to flash the 740K with the firmware from the SPC900 camera and then use the SPC900 drivers - see https://www.sevenforums.com/drivers/103 ... river.html for example, but I have never done this myself. There may be a risk that if these steps go wrong you will end up with a camera that does not work at all.

cheers,

Robin

Thanks for the information Robin. I'm running Windows 10 and tried loading the Window 2000 driver that I thought would work, it appeared to recognize the camera fine. Thanks for the info, I will give it a try.
