Sipix Blink (1) USB-Camera

I wonder if anyone can help?

I have an old Sipix Blink camera (really old - I'd forgotten I had it) that I can download files from, but I have thus far been unable to convert the files so that I can view images.

Downloaded files are allegedly in RAW format, but dcraw says they are in an unsupported format. Has anyone found a way to succesfully convert Blink RAW files to another format?

sorry, I've been trying hard all day, and I can find nothing that supports this camera. The logitech ones look like they might have more support, but this cam hasn't had anyone clever working on it by the look of things!

Yes, I kind of got that idea too!

Thanks for trying though...
