Is it possible to use other drivers with webcams?

Question

I have a @-CAM.LITE USB CAMERA EC-100 webcam that I got off ebay. The cd that came with it is unreadable. I have tried to download the drivers from the manufaturer's site, but the zip file only contains half the data. I've been emailing the manufacturer for months trying to get the drivers or a copy of the cd. But have yet to get any responce from them.

So, is it possable to use any other drivers to get this cam to work? Are there any "basic universal" webcam drivers out there?

Unfortunately, you might be out of luck There are drivers that can substitute, but it is difficult to direct you to them I've learned that if you lose or damage the cd and can't get a replacement from the manufacturer, it's nearly impossible to make a device work At this time, you should visit the product manufactures' site and download the nearest driver to your model Be sure not to" time out" or get dropped This would result in the incomplete data.
