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!!!

Go to Control Panel/Power Options and check the settings. It's probably set to shut off after a period of time.

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.
