I have a new in the box Philips SIC4750/27 Webcam. I want to install it on a Windows 10 laptop. The CD it came with does not have a Win 10 driver. The Philips website does not have one. I found a few places online that said they do, but did a search and was told they were malware sites. Is there a safe place to get a new driver for an old Webcam, or just go buy a new one?
1) Open device manager, go to the phillips webcam device (which will probably show up as "unknown device"
2) right click - update driver | browse my computer | let me pick | have disk
3) Navigate to the CD and select the correct .inf file which will be somewhere in the file structure
4) next next finish.... ignoring any warning about compatibility you might get.
i have no idea if this will work for your device... but will only take a minute and is worth a try.
The reason this can sometimes works is that your specifying that a specific driver should be used, rather than windows 10 searching for drivers that are only win 10 compatible.
