a little bit gutted, been trying to get the adjustment program working but, win'7 64bit doesn't like the drivers for the camera when in adjustment mode.

tried with a virtualbox xp, but i think that since win7 isn't recongising the camera in adjustment mode, it wont pass through properly into the virtual xp.

i also attempted to put a dual boot of xp onto the laptop but think i have drive issue with it not been IDE, so wont let me install

In order to let the ajustment program work properly I strongly recomend you to use a real XP installation, I use XP pro.

Aye I think I'm going to try and install it properly as a dual boot, which should hopefully sort it

I agree. The drivers seem to be written for Windows 2000 and also just happens to work with XP (and not very well at that). You might eventually be able to get away with using the adjustment program on XP under some sort of emulation with enough tweaking, but I think it will be faster to just do a XP install (any version should do for this) on physical hardware.
