Question about Microsoft LifeCam VX-3000 Web Camera

1 Answer

Microsoft LifeCam VX-3000

I am using Windows XP on a Dell Inspiron 1501 with an AMD Turion 64x2 processor, all of my specs line up to use a VX-3k on my computer, however, it's not working.

After installation, I plug in my camera, it installs the necessary hardware just fine, and the sample video/audio setup wizard works fine. I can see my picture, adjust the focus and other settings at this time and finish the setup. After this, however, the camera ceases from working. Anytime I open software that enables the camera, whether that is the actual camera software, or Skype, I get the following error 7-9 times in a row before the program opens:

[program name].exe - Entry Point Not Found
The procedure entry point_mbsnbcpy_s could not be located in the dynamic link library msvcrt.dll.

After clicking through the error windows, I arrive at the program, and, for example, in the camera's software the window comes up just fine for the program, but the field that should be showing a video feed is either black or blank. Skype video calls open in the same way, I see my contacts video, but my screen in the corner is black.

Please Help!!!

How can i install my webcam (microsoft VX-3000) if i lost the CD ?


Hi there,
You can still download the drivers from the links below for your windows
For Windows 7 LifeCam 3.2 32-bit and 64-bit for Windows 7
For Windows XP (32-Bit) LifeCam 3.2 32-bit for Windows XP SP2 or higher (excluding 64-bit)
For Windows XP (64-Bit) LifeCam 2.04 for Windows XP 64-bit
Download the drivers, unplug the camera from the computer and run the setup Lifecam3.22.exe, Install the drivers and follow on-screen instruction, Within the setup it might will prompt you to plug in the camera, connect the camera and the drivers will be loaded automatically and you will need to restart your computer once,

LifeCam VX-1000 on Windows Vista Dell 1521 Turion 64


I just checked to verify that Microsoft does indeed offer a Vista compatible download for that cam. If you are serious about using the cam on the Vista machine, maybe you should try downloading the driver directly from Microsoft. It is entirely possible that the CD drive on your Vista machine is having problems reading the CD that came with the webcam and the download would be a direct install from the hard drive. Heck, it's worth a try, don't ya think.
