Help with new webcam. Hey guys so I have a custom built pc with an MSI B550 edge wifi motherboard and I’m running windows 10 20h2. I bought a camera today that is supposed to be a plug and play and it does do that on my MacBook and super easily, it unfortunately doesn’t work on my pc. This sucks because I need it for school. I did everything in the device manager and it still doesn’t pop up in the device manager.

Model of webcam? I guess the autorun file didn't run. You might have to download the drivers or maybe there is a partition in "This PC" ?

The model is some $70 one I got from Best Buy called aluratek. And no I didn’t get any auto run downloads for my Mac and my pc but it worked perfectly fine on the Mac. I don’t even have the camera icon on device manager to update drivers and I’m kind of a noob so I don’t know how to find them manually. I also have no idea what a partition is.

I think this is what you're talking about. Indeed it should be a plug and play.. It happens sometimes. This is a what a autorun partition looks like which I was talking about :

See the Oneplus Drivers partition? That is where the autorun files for the necessary drivers are. MAYBE there is one too on your PC.. Check and update :)

Is there any other place the partitions would be and are they al called one plus or would it be a different name for me

Yea I just tried on my parents laptop and it worked fine, I couldn’t tell if there was a download for it, if so it was very quick. On their laptop it also popped up in device management but for some reason my 2k pc doesn’t work with it 😂

I guess try plugging in your parent's laptop and open "This PC" and see if there is a new partition there... It might say the name of the company

What you can do now is,

Go to Device Manager on your PC and select "Scan for hardware changes". Let it do its thing and Restart.

Check if you've disabled access to camera in Privacy Tab in windows settings??

😶
