If XP doesn't pick up the device, then there won't be any support for it.

TBH, if XP doesn't detect and install it and the original manufacturer does not support the device, chances are the device is quite old.

Therefore meaning that the picture quality would not be as good as a decent USB camera.  At around £25.00 for a new one is it worth the hassle ??

The comments indicate that it works for XP also.
