USB Endoscope | Borescope Camera products based on the PixArt PAC7302 device looks like this:

Typical Endoscope kit

Typical Endoscope kit

and may have the name

USB Endoscope

Tube Snake Inspection Camera

 

 

These cameras have one button on the handle.

If your camera looks like this but has two buttons on the handle, the camera is based on the PixArt PAP7501 device. It might be called a Super Telescope Camera.

Please note that these drivers are for Intel and AMD architecture versions of Windows 10/8/7.

They are not compatible with Windows 8/RT Tablet devices with the ARM cpu and will not install. 

Details

Perhaps you, as we did, found that while the driver installs and works for XP/Vista/Win7, the application software that comes with it is unimpressive, with irritations such as

  • The driver sometimes won’t install from the SnakeScope mini-CD.
  • No Help file for the driver or video capture application
  • No information on the TWAIN driver software.
  • Incomprehensible error messages when the camera is not connected or the wrong video or audio device is selected.
  • Menu items meaningful to a programmer but not the typical user.
  • The SnapShot Reader window does not close when the capture application closes.
  • The SnapShot Reader window content stops updating, with a re-install the only obvious way to get it working again.
  • Annoying security messages about Win.ini updating when running under Vista and Windows 7.
  • No software support from PixArt or the original supplier of the camera.
  • The OEM driver won’t load into Windows 10.

The updated software replaces and extends the AmCap video capture application that runs when you click the camera button. The PAC7302 USB driver software has a new installer that works correctly.

Looking for the original driver for a PAC7302 or PAP7501 ?

How to tell if this software will work for your USB Snake Scope or Super Snake Scope camera.

The simplest way is to run the application capture program. If the Status bar shows “Telescope Driver” or “GUCI_AVS” then the software update will likely work for you.

Look for a C:\Windows\PixArt\PAC7302 or C:\Windows\PixArt\PAP7501 directory

You can also run the Device Manager with the camera attached.

The camera appears in the Imaging Devices class, and is called Telescope Driver, as shown above. The Super Snake Scope appears as something like GUCI_AVS or USB2.0.

  • Here’s what customers have said about our Technical support
    •  “It’s nice to email a site and get someone with a brain. Much appreciated.”
    • “Simply the best and most comprehensive support I’ve ever had.”
    • The software update went very well. It’s for a USB microscope that I bought in Japan, but it has the same camera as the endoscope, so needs the same drivers. As I’m using Windows 7, the drivers that came with the microscope didn’t work, but the PiXCL drivers were great.”
    • I was most impressed with the speed and friendliness with which you responded to my request for assistance, especially since it was over a weekend. Thank you so much.”
    • “…the installation ran smoothly and as advertised. Excellent. I now know that the positive reviews were well-deserved.”
    • “Being able to get face-to-face tech support with a free Skype video call was outstanding. Install problem solved.”
    • I followed your instructions to the letter and everything went very well, even though I have an old laptop still running XP. I am very happy with the quality of your upgrade after the original software failed after one use.”
    • I found your site to be the most open and honest of all and your comments about all of the sites requiring one to download a whole heap of spyware was spot on.”
    • On fixing bug on AMD-A8 cpu laptop:“… it runs.  Its perfectly clear. No lines – no crashes.  Fantastic. Thanks for your overwhelming customer support. I can’t imagine how this would have gone if it had been a Microsoft product.”

We have many customers in all these countries.
