    Have you tried

    gqcam

    to see if it is recognized?

    You might check here for driver

    I don't think it's recognized when I use it via msn, it show's a blue screen,
    And I can't find a suitable driver anywhere on that site, exploits because I don't know what all of those things mean, can you point me to the right driver?
    thanks
