Default Webcam driver for unknown webcam.


Lately i found a webcam wich i haven't used for quite some time. I plugged it in, but the Windows XP Pro SP3 detected the webcam as an unknown USB device. I cannot find a driver manually, becouse i lost the package in which the webcam was in when i bought it, and there are no manufacturer nor model name written on the webcam itself. I disassembled the webcam and below are all the writings i found on the chipset:

PAL-A 94V-0
E197709 0744
TCI 12,0000
PN:001-261202-801 (or PN:001-26120L-801, couldn't excaly see which one is it.)
Rev. B1

I hope you guys know what thoose numbers means and you could help me out with finding a proper driver. I tried to google them all, but with no result.

Thanks in advance,

Could you possibly take a picture of the webcam? Quite a few people don't take apart their cams, but know what they look like.
