Default need help with a webcam and msn

A friend of mine gave me a webcam because he has another one that he uses. He got it from somewhere and never used it before so he doesnt know what company it is. I searched on the net and this seems to be the same one:

It comes with a software and the drivers. So i installed them and when I press this button on the top, the software pops up and I can see that the webcam is working fine. I downloaded a few other random programs off of google to see if they detect this cam and they all do. However, MSN doesnt seem to detect it. And thats the only reason I need it, so i can use it with MSN.

The attached image is the camera properties.

when i go to the webcam settings in msn, it only shows my tv card as a possible camera device. The option for changing camera devices is greyed out, so i cant change it to the webcam. Any ideas?
Someone was telling me that this may be a snapshot cam. I have no idea what that is though.
