Microsoft Lifecam VX-3000 Sound problems

I have a problem with my new webcam. My webcam has a built in microphone and my Packard Bell Desktop Pc IMAX X3414 also has built in speakers but when i am on a live video call i can't hear the other person and they cant hear me. My pc's software is Windows Vista and i dont know anything about the settings because it's very different from Windows 98 & XP 2000. Im not sure if it's the settings can you help?

    Almost the same problem -- I can see and hear them, but they can only see me. Please help ~ this is our connection for when my husband is at a two-week training program on the other side of the country. The kids need to talk to their dad!

    I can see and hear them, but they cannot. How come the Microsoft does erase all of the troubleshooting tips regarding this problem?

Microsoft vx-3000 won't work on MSN!!


What you can do is click the Sound Icon beside the Nudge Button. It might bring up a window titled "Set up Audio and Video - Speaker/Microphone or Speakerphone" the Microsoft Vx-3000 has a microphone built in, so you can change your audio settings to "Microsoft Vx-3000" , then click next. The next one is Webcam. You can change the default settings to Microsot vx-3000.

If you've tried changing your settings for MSN before, then I'm not sure. This is the clever way for me :P

Microsoft Lifecam / Using a different microphone


Im not sure I understood exactly the issue but the solutions are more than one ...
you may just uninstall the web cam ...and set the mic you want to use and after that reinstall the web cam ...and you have every chances to be installed and the external mic to remain in use..
or ...to use the mic from the external pink entry of the pc ...just select it from the sound driver ...options..
in your capture program you might also have the choice for which mic to use ....
in your yahoo messenger for example you have this choice on preferences /audio device....
you also may find on your control panel ...sound and audio device /audio../and for the sound recording audio device ...select the one you want...
good luck !

You can download the driver here :- http://www.opendrivers.com/driver/236296/microsoft-lifecam-nx-6000-vx-1000-vx-3000-vx-6000-driver-1.21-windows-xp-free-download.html
the camera has a built in microphone,so after a proper installation you should have the video and mic funtioning.
but in your case, the cam doesn't work, so you have to try first uninstall the driver >> unplug the camera USB port >> then make a restart >> plud the camera back into the usb >> and install the drivers again.
