FlexiCam USB Web Cam (helloworld)

Today I found an strange USB WebCam.


It is branded "HelloWorld". FlexiCam 350k pixles. The box has a link to a broken domain called helloworld.com.

It is a USB webcam and mic included.

Windows 7 (32Bits)

By default Windows 7 (32 bits) do not recognize it.  It will recognize the USB Mic correctly was "USB2.0 Web Camera" under "Sound Devices". But it will give you an error on "USB2.0 Web Camera" under "Imaging Devices"

After some fight, it got recognized on Windows 7 a "Imaging Device" as "FlexiCam USB 2.0 with Sound". (The webcam)


And the USB Mic got recognized as "USB2.0 Web Cam"


Windows 7 (64Bits) 

I still can not make this webcam work in Windows 7 64 bits.  It does not recognize the usbvm326.sys driver. None of the drivers on vimicro.com is working for x64 for this model.
