    All essential and necessary Win 7 64bit drivers for Satellite C70D-B are available on Toshiba EU driver page.

    The single webcam driver isnít available because as far as I know the Toshiba Value Added Package already contains the essential driver to get the webcam working.

    The mic is part of the webcam and should be chosen in control panel ? sound ? recording tab

    Thanks.
    Sorry for responding late. The laptop was travelling and is just now back at my desk for follow up.

    Afraid I downloaded and installed everything from the driver downloads, including the Value Added Package.
    Yet, no working webcam nor microphone.

    Microphone seems to be there via control panel --> sound --> recording tab, but won't respond to switching on or off.

    What's the brand/type number of the cam? Maybe the manufacturer provides the drivers?

    Early notebook models were equipped with Chicony webcam but in such case the webcam driver was provided by Toshiba as was available for download. But this isn't the case here...

    Question: is the webcam or any unknown device available in device manager?
    If not, check the BIOS settings
    In some cases the webcam must be enabled in BIOS.

    But as already mentioned by Francesco: Toshiba doe not provide single Win 7 webcam driver. It must be part of the VAP.

    No need to download separately. Was part of the regular Toshiba downloads already.

    Turned out that the webcam was switched off in the Bios. Typical behavior of the new Win8 generation computers ;-(

    Turned it on in the bios, and worked as a charm.
