Samsung UF-80 Drivers / Support CD Needed

I would not normally beg for a device driver, being that we see enough of that already -- but this is a difficult case.

I have here two Samsung UF80-ST (identical to the UF80-DX except for the backlight) digital presenters donated to the local ham radio club.  Both are working.  They output DVI, VGA and correctly present themselves to a host PC on USB.

Unfortunately, Windows does not recognize them as video input devices.  I assume that the drivers are needed.

I can not locate Windows drivers or the original support CD.  The manual refers to a support site which is now cybersquatted.  Samsung does not have the support software on any of their sites.  I've goofled 30 pages of search without productive results.  There are "We have your drivers" hits but all of them are shady "install our software and we'll solve your driver problem" sites.

Is there a chance that some expert's IT or AV department has the support CD and could image an ISO file from it?

My experience told me that image capturing devices like the one you are using will only work with the OS when the device was launched.

So, you need to setup a Windows XP computer if you want to try with the driver from MASQ.
or run xp in a VM

Thanks to everyone who contributed their input and especially to Masq.  The files were indeed not on the Internet Archive site, but this was a good lead on what exactly to look for.  Running a goofle search with some simple variations on the file names located them at Samsung Korea where somebody forgot to delete an obsolete device support page.

And how to install them on Windows Vista at another obscure site:

I consider this 100% successful.
and what OS are you using now?
Good to hear :) I'd tried a few Korean Samsung pages but that domain is new to me - well done!
For the benefit of those who may have the same problem in the future -

Samsung UF-80DX / Samsung UF-80ST documents, drivers, and software can be found on my web site at the link below:

Plus a modification to convert the strange inlet power jack to 2.1mm standard power jack using the "output" power jack next to the power inlet jack.
