Default Webcam help

I have an old Creative webcam I want to use I bought a couple years back. I don't have the drivers cd and I don't know if it will even work with Vista 64 bit. Anyone know a good site or something I can find the drivers for this thing? I don't know anything else about the webcam other than it's a Creative.

Actually Creatives's website is pretty helpful if you have not checked there yet. They have the camera support area with pictures of the cameras to help you identify which camera you have.
Creative Worldwide Support > Web Cameras

Also many times vista will have built in drivers for your camera that work pretty well.
Have you tried to plug the webcam in and see if windows drivers work for it?

I plugged it in and let it do its thing but It never did find any.

I'm downloading something for it now, can't be drivers being its 32MB, but the site is saying Vista not supported.
