1. please post within this thread a list microsoft generic driver files needed to make any
still image device ( camera ) connected to a USB port on any
Windows Vista 64 machine as a disk drive so that folders
can be created/removed and files can be moved/deleted/whatever
These files will be listed in the device manager as
a series of sys/dll/inf/exe type files necessary to use the device.

2. please tell me how to replace the following device driver
I can not find on my machine
VID_040A&PID_05D1&REV_0100
as is supposed to be listed within the INF file.
There is multiple DRIVER folders within the system32 area
which holds a driver (repository) library of driver files. If they are
incomplete how does one replace them ?

2. What drivers are necessary for a Generic camera USB device
installec as WIA device ??


4. The OS is Windows Vista 64

5. Will PTP drivers from 32 bit XP machine work
In VISTA 64 ??

6. Does WMP11 provide needed drivers for camera or other AV devices
and if so how to replace drivers if they have been deleted by the user ?

7. Is it possible to write/convert from 32bit your own generic drivers for a 64 bit win vista machine ?

8. Thanks ahead for any proper answers.

The key is the camera itself. As long as the camera exposes a
standard-compliant USB Mass Storage interface, no drivers are necessary at
all. Microsoft's standard usbstor driver will handle everything.

That's a Kodak EasyShare, right? You need to go to Kodak to get the proper
driver. You can try uninstalling the device from Device Manager. If the
original installation put the files in the Driver Store, as it was supposed
to, then it should reinstall everything.

Again, the key is the camera. If the camera complies with the USB Still
Image class, then Microsoft's standard WIA provider will handle everything.

No. Not becaose of XP/Vista issues, but because the 64-bit systems must
use 64-bit drivers.

WMP11 doesn't provide any drivers at all. If you have deleted a camera
driver, then you need to go to the camera manufacturer to get a
replacement.

>7. Is it possible to write/convert from 32bit your own generic drivers for a 64 bit win vista machine ?


Not sure what you mean. If you mean you have a 32-bit camera driver but no
specifications for the camera, then there is no chance. You have to
understand the details of the camera's internal operation to write a
driver.

However, very few USB cameras today actually need a custom driver. Most
use the standard drivers. Indeed, that's generally required in order to
get the Windows logo.
