Old webcams not working on Windows 10

Hello friends,

I need small on connecting the webcams on Windows 10.

I've two Create webcams, almost 10 years old, which I tried to connect and install on my desktop running Windows 10 Home for my wife's online zoom sessions. But unfortunately none of these work on Win 10. Not sure if these webcams are too old to be used?

Please suggest some solution for this:

1. Is there any way to make it work with Windows 10 Home?
2. If not possible, then suggest a new model at reasonable price (say 1.0-1.5K max)

Thanks in advance!

Any hardware can only work on an operating system if it has compatible drivers for that OS. You need to search to find out but I doubt there will be working win 10 drivers for 10 years old webcam so better just buy new ones.
@SaiyanGoku @omega44-xt any good webcams in this price range?

Yes, I've already tried finding the drivers for those webcams but couldn't find it; maybe it's already EOL.
Looks like buying a new one is the only solution, but I'm not getting anything decent at cheap price. Most of the webcams are 4-5K+ or more.

Thanks!
