    Did you ever get this to work? I am having issues in Vista as well.

    Keeps saying "Unknown Device".

    Any info appreciated, thanks :)

    I have both working on my One, in my case, I performed an upgrade install from XP, but I looked into the drivers that are on my One and working and here's some info that might help.

    Microphone: There are two drivers for the audio that I can identify in device manager. If the mic isn't disabled, this info is for drivers that work for me with Vista Ultimate 32 bit SP1 for the hardwareIDs listed below.

    1) High Definition Audio Controller (in System Devices)
    Hardware IDs:
    PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_27D8&SUBSYS_015B1025&REV_02
    PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_27D8&SUBSYS_015B1025
    PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_27D8&CC_040300
    PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_27D8&CC_0403

    2) High Definition Audio Controller (in Sound, video and game controllers).
    Hardware IDs:
    HDAUDIO\FUNC_01&VEN_10EC&DEV_0268&SUBSYS_1025015B&REV_1001
    HDAUDIO\FUNC_01&VEN_10EC&DEV_0268&SUBSYS_1025015B

    Driver for High Definition Audio Controller:
    Provider: Microsoft
    Driver Date: 6/21/2006
    Driver version: 6.0.6001.18000
    Driver Details (files):
    hdaudbus.sys - File version: 6.0.6001.17036 (LH_Client.071120-1638)

    Driver for High Definition Audio Device (shows up as the driver for the internal mic when I check properties)
    Provider: Microsoft
    Driver Date: 6/21/2006
    Driver Version: 6.0.6000.16386
    Driver Details (files):
    drmk.sys - file version: 6.0.6001.18000 (longhorn_rtm.080118-1840)
    HdAudio.sys - file version: 6.0.5840.16387 (vbl_media_core.060511-1323)
    portcls.sys - file version: 6.0.6001.18000 (longhorn_rtm.080118-1840)
    SysFxUI.dll - file version 6.0.6000.16386 (vista_rtm.061101-2205)
    WMALFXGFXDSP.dll - file version: 11.6001.7000 (longhorn_rtm.080118-1840)

    Looks like they are older drivers, but they are working perfectly. I can't seem to find these specific drivers online, not sure if vista loaded them (the drivers versions tend to tell me it did) or thye came from an update. I found a lot of similar drivers on http://softpedia.com, you may have to try a few of those.

    Webcam: Only one driver I can see is the Acer Crystal Eye Webcam (under Imaging Devices)
    HardwareIDs:
    USB\VID_0C45&PID_62C0&REV_0100
    USB\VID_0C45&PID_62C0

    Driver for Acer Crystal Eye Webcam:
    Driver Provider: Sonix
    Driver Date: 5/16/2008
    Driver version: 5.8.33.1
    Driver Details:
    PidList.ini - file version: unknown (it really says that)
    PLFSetL.exe - file version: 1.0.0.0
    sncduvc.sys - 1.1.7.0
    snp2uvc.sys - 1.8.9.0

    Hope this helps! I'll poke around for more specific driver installers tomorrow, but right now it's late and I'm off. If you could check if you even have the same hardwareIDs, it might save me some time if you don't ;)
