    Question Not so Smart Webcam Need help

    My girlfriend brought home this webcam she got for free awhile back. Ive been trying for awhile and i would really like to make it work but when i plug it in nothing happens and its not even recognized as a USB device. Is there anything that could possibly work or is it truly a windows only device? Any help would be appreciated.
