It is actually impossible to use a digital camera as a web cam. Being that you can not use the camera when it's connected to your computer. When you connect your camera to your computer, your computer only sees it as a storage device. Like a hard drive or flash. What you can do, is make a video on your camera, connect it to your computer, then send it to who you'd like.

SOURCE: Is the kodak easy share c180 digital camera webcam?

I won't say the camera is usable as a webcam because you will definitely severly shorten the life of the camera by using it as such. Firstly the camera is designed to take photos and short videos, NOT being left on continuously for use as a webcam. The heat generated by doing so could damage the delicate CCD (the part which collects light from the lens and converts it into electrical signals) Secondly most cameras are deigned to switch themselves off after a certain period of non use. Not handy for webcams.

Next there's the power issue. Unless you are using an external power supply for the camera you will be forever replacing batteries and for what an external power supply costs you could buy a proper made for the job USB powered WebCam complete with focus and sometimes zoom.

Next there's the mounting issue. Where will you mount the camera to give a well lit and steady picture of your face. Definitely not on top of the monitor due to extra heat generated by the monitor itself. Mix that with camera's heat and hello, and too soon, goodbye camera.

Webcams cost $20 if ou shop around maybe cheaper. OK your cmera will give a better picture but at the distance you're talking it won't matter. Plus you will need software to generate the webcam picture. MSN is a good webcam program. Plus depending on the output of the camera, usually only video. You may need a video capture card for your computer. The camera will give you a full screen image of what it's pointed at but you need a box to put a smaller picture in on the screen otherwise all you will see is one big face, yours.

So do you really want to wear your camera out prematurely simply because you can't afford a $20 webcam. The made for the job unit is cheap, will stay on all day and the power comes from the USB port. Everything you need and cheap. I think you know which way to go.

Good luck

Device driver was not successfully installed. Why?


I?m not sure if you?re fault code is showing on the computer, Easy Share Software, or the camera itself. Therefor I will list 2 possible solutions: If the fault message is on the LCD on the camera: There is no firmware available online for this camera model. Therefor you do need to set up a "repair" with KODAK directly. An Out of Warranty repair for this model for this fault is about 88 pounds + shipping. KODAK also offers a Trade up option where you will have the opportunity to trade up to a newer model 25-30% cheaper than the market price. In order to arrange your repair/Trade up: Contact KODAK: http://www.kodak.com/eknec/PageQuerier.jhtml?pq-path=14563&pq-locale=en_US&_requestid=3490 If this fault message is on your computer, Easy Share Software: Please do a Clean Install on the software: Please follow the instructions: Uninstall Easy Share software: Select Start > Settings > Control Panel > Add / Remove Programs.
