I bought the camera at wal-mart, the disk looks like the proper disk... I am going to try exploring the disk, as you suggested....(I bought the camera back in October.... Wal-mart only allows return/exchanges of electronics for 30 days... :sad:
I'll let you know how it goes... Thanks for the suggestion!

The install disk has the H.264 codec on it and a not-so-good conversion program for the non-standard .AVI file container. You can get by without either. Get ffdshow-tryouts codec package, and you've got the H.264 codec along with most all other common codecs... nice codec package. And there are other conversion programs (for free) if you need to convert. You can edit hte native .AVI file directly in editors like WMM, virtual dub, but you MUST keep the first frame intact to complete the editing. Other commercial editorslike MAGIX Movie Edit 14 (and Pro) can edit without this drawback.

The only driver on the install disk is one needed to use it as a web cam. If you aren't going to do that, you don't need it.
