Webcam still doesnt work properly I have downloaded the software but the webcam will not come on.

Can't figure out what's wrong and I need to get this camera working.

Computer doesnt recoginze my camera after i downloaded the software

try to insert to other usb port, if its still not working one possible cause would be the software compatibility between your webcam and the windows that you have used. Better to check the system requirements of your webcam before install. Thanks.

Why wont logitech doesnt work on acer

Hi bskilai,
I guess it is not the camera that has the issue if he driver for the camera installed properly then it should work since you never mentioned any errors at all.
I see you want to use this with skype you will need to check the settings in skype and set your Logitech camera in the settings to make it work, also this will depend on what windows you have?
make sure that your skype settings are ok for the camera that it is set as the device for the camera settings to make it work.
regarding the software make sure all the software you will be using is compatible with the windows your using.

Cant open creative web camera - lost installation Cd

Plug your webcam in and visit this site "Allow" in the top window and see if your webcam works in the left panel

If it does not work here, you know you have a hardware problem ( webcam, lead, USB connection etc) .
Troubleshoot by using something else in the USB port, like a printer.
Try hooking your cam up on a friends computer.

If it does work here - you have a software problem
Download this webcam diagnostic tool and run it. through the tests using "next" to move through the pages
It always asks me to Re-boot on the first check.
Act on any information highlighted especially if software like Directx requires updating

If no problems are indicated or have been addressed, try interrogating the information in Device Manager
Expand the 'Imaging' folder in device manager, right click on the text of your webcam. Select 'Properties' and check all the information in each of the tabs.
Update your driver by right clicking the webcam text and select 'Update driver software' Use the internet when prompted

If you are still having problems - uninstall the webcam software - unplug the webcam - restart the computer and download new software from here

Webcam working on macam but not skype

Maccam comes with a file called maccam.component. You must copy that file to /Libraries/Quicktime which is on your main hard disk. This enables the camera to function with quicktime and other software on the Mac besides Maccam.

It worked for me. Best of luck.

My computer doesnt recognize the assistant for the hardware

Normal 0 Try disconnecting the Camera from the USB port and reinstall the CD or Downloaded software program. When the program asks you to connect the camera to the USB port, do so and it should work.
Then to use it on the Web do this.
Web Camera’s have to be setup on the program they are to be used with. Just installing the camera on your computer does not set it up to broadcast on messengers or Skype.
Each program has Options that have to be setup in order for the Audio and Video to function properly.
A. Skype Setup:
After downloading and installing Skype ( ) set it up as follows:
  1. Go to Tools, then Options, and click on Audio Settings and set the Microphone and Speakers to the computer Audio Card.
  2. Then click on the Video Settings.
  3. The camera if Installed Properly will come up and show a video picture.
  4. Then, on the bottom of the page click on Save.
The camera and audio should function properly. Your friends and Family will now be able to see and her to you.
B. Yahoo Setup:
After downloading and installing Yahoo Messenger ( ) set it up as follows:
  1. Go to Messenger at the top left and click on it.
  2. Next go down to Preferences and click on it.
  3. Next Calling and Devices on the right and set the Microphone and Speakers to the computer Audio Card.
  4. Next go to the Test Audio section and (in blue writing) click on “Open the call setup assistant” and follow the instructions on the left window.
C. Windows Live Messenger:
  1. After you start Windows Live Messenger, expand the view by clicking on the square on top left next to the red X.
  2. Then on the Windows Live messenger window on the right side, click on “ “Show Menus.” And then click on “Show the Menu Bar”.
  3. Next go to the Menu Bar on right side, click on “ “Action.”
  4. Go to “TOOLS” and click “Audio and Video Setting” and follow the instructions.
NOTE: Your audio and video should work. Enjoy.
When done both the Audio and Video will function properly so you can chat and see family or friends you are connected to.
Hope this helps. Bud
