Microview USB microscope

by buckfast_beekeeper on Mon Mar 13, 2017 5:18 pm

I have a MicroView USB 2.0 Microscope 220X 5.0MP. He has worked perfectly under Vista 32bit. At the moment I have a new laptop with USB3.0 and Win10 64bit. I'm not able to mount the microscope correctly. Micro Capture 2.0 delivered with the microscope don't work. Micro Capture 2.5 has the same problem. After startup it always say's that there isn't a microscope connected. Win10 says that the microscope is working correct. Win10 say that a Vimicro USB 2.0 PC Camera (Venus) is attached. Are there newer drivers for win10 64bit? Is there a capture program that works under win10 64bit?

With thanks.

I'm afraid we don't know of any new drivers, but try putting a USB-2 hub between the computer and the microscope. USB-3 sems to be causing problems for a lot of older devices.
