Webcam still doesnt work properly I have downloaded the software but the webcam will not come on. I have used the same software and camera at the college I go to and have no problem there but it will not work on my computer. My computer is an HP and I use XP just like at the College. Can't figure out what's wrong and I need to get this camera working.

    i just bought the same camera installed the drivers plugged it in, and windows doesnt even know that its plugged in. i looked in the control panel for the cam to setup audio n video, and its not in the list for camera's. Is this camera no good? I'm seriously thinking about sending it back to newegg, if any knows how to fix this, it would be appreciated or else its goin back, i only have 30 days to send it back.

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.

My web cam does not work when I go to youcam it doesnt recognize or the camera doesnt work. But online the notice I have a camer but it doesnt work

Did you have software installed to use the WebCam? You need software to run the WebCam. Install the web cam software in your PC. Look in your program folder to locate webcam software. Then you access the web cam through this software. Your problem must be solved.
