How to find Windows 7 USB drivers for handheld microscope (camera) 0x0C45 0x613c

Some years ago I bought a handheld USB microscope, and I don't find the drivers anymore.

I would be interested in how to best find drivers again.

I tried to google for it, but was somehow not that gifted.
Is there something like a good web site with USB ids and potential locations to download drivers from.
Primarily I would just like to be able to use this device again.

Secondarily I am really interested in generic ways of finding windows drivers for USB devices for which have no more drivers/paper documentation.

it looks like they are Microdia devices

here is how i found that  :  
if you have unknown devices in device manager, you can use this precedure to identify them :

Start>Programs>Accessories>System Tools>System Information.
Now select  "Components" and highlight "Problem Devices".
All hardware devices with a driver problem will be listed here.
Make a note of the first line of the PNP Device ID line of the entry. It will show a Vendor number and a Device number (VENxxxxDEVxxxx) both four digits long.
Look up those numbers here:   http://www.pcidatabase.com/index.php

This will tell you the manufacturer and the chip number.  
Check the manufacturer's website first or google them - or post them here

If your LAN is running, you can also use windows update, or drivereasy (free) :  www.drivereasy.com
let it scan, then hit Get Drivers, it will list the drivers - you can google them, or let drivereasy do it

i hope it helps
