What to do with non working usb cam Answered

I have a camera that looks like this http://fametech.en.alibaba.com/product/275792592-200008986/USB2_0_interface_high_quality_metal_webcam.html
When I plug it in it asks to install a driver for a usb20 camera.
I don't know if it is broken or not but their site says it doesn't need a driver.
Anyways what are some neat things i can do with this?  I have 2 there are some pretty large blinding leds when I plug it in
and one has a sound recever.
I was hoping to salvage the video camera part of it if I could.

This is only half a story: what are you plugging it into, and what OS requires the USB 2.0 driver(s)?

I am plugging it into my computer which has vista home premium. The camera should work on vista according to the manufacturer. This is basically a camera made in china only sold in bulk and it was hard to track down.

Better photos on my photobucket.

You would expect it to work wouldn't you...
You found the manuf's web site and they didn't have any drivers / software?

Nope. They said no drivers required it is plug and play. I have 2 of these and was just looking to see if I could turn it into something cool. I have a logitech orbit so I don't mind that they don't work on my computer.

Have you tried looking for a "generic" driver (if such a thing exists)?
