Hello sir, actually i lost me creative web cam cd and want to install it on my pc for windows xp can u pls help me out


Hi siddharthnar

You can download the Driver and Applications for this Webcam from the official Creative Support Website. Select Windows XP and "All" in the Drop Down Menus and then click "Submit" at the foot of the Drivers and Downloads webpage to open the succeeding Download Page for both XP Driver and Applications:

http://support.creative.com/downloads/welcome.aspx?nDriverType=1#type_1


After successful downloading but before installation, be aware that for some webcams, it is better to install the drivers and software first and then connect the camera afterwards.

If you have installed the Drivers and Applications with the camera connected, disconnect the Webcam > uninstall ALL components of the Webcam software > restart the computer > reinstall the Webcam Driver and Applications > restart the computer > reconnect the Webcam > My Computer > right click on the camera icon at the bottom of the window (scroll down if necessary) > Send To > Desktop (create shortcut) > double click on the new desktop Webcam icon
.

I hope this helps.

Hi.. my Laptop's built in camera is not working. Dont really know what is the problem as I've never used it yet neither I can find any setup info to locate is it ON or OFF. I mean I'm an old timer so...


Hi salkh10,

The Motion Eye Camera on the Computer will be enabled automatically when the Computer starts. You will need to open the "ArcSoft WebCam Companion" Software to use the Camera.

You can locate the ArcSoft WebCam Companion Software by click "Start", "All Programs", "ArcSoft Webcam Companion".

This should help you to use the Camera.

If the Camera is not working in the Webcam Compnion Software, you may need to re-install the Drivers and Applications to fix it. Please try using the Application to check if that works.

If not, please post back with the version of the Operating System installed in the Computer.

Thanks,

Good Luck!

Toshiba satellite a205 webcam says locked by another application


I don't know what exactly fixed the problem but I managed to fix it. I'm using a Toshiba Satellite A215 by the way.

Here's what I did
Control Panel >> System Maintenance >> Device Manager

Go to Imaging Devices and right-click "Chicony USB 2.0 Camera" and choose "Update Driver Software"

First I clicked on "Search automatically for updated driver software" but everything was already up to date. So then I went to "Browse my Computer for Driver Software" and then to "Let Me Pick from a List". I updated the USB Video Device and rebooted but that only made it worse I think. Then I tried updating one of the "Chicony USB 2.0 Camera"'s and that did the trick. Yey. So now my webcam works.

You won't believe this! After trying all drivers on MSI Site, reinstall the proper driver and restart laptop.

Press the P1 button on the top right hand corner (near the power, wifi, internet, etc button) and Windows does the found new hardware sound.

Open the application and your done!

Another problem less :)
