Re: M318B viewquest usb cam on XPhome will not work
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.
Hope this helps. Bud

can you please tell me what is the brand of your webcam? All I know for that is if your operating system is Windows XP just connect it to your USB port and then let the Windows detect and install it automatically. Please try to connect to your USB port.
if your trying to download video usb won't work! must use firewire cable hooked up to dv port on cam and connection on laptop or tower called 1394-cable is either 4 pin or 6 pin-depends on computer- cam is always 4 pin-says dv on camcorder-usb only for still pics-use windows movie maker in xp or vista to edit
check the usb settings enabled in the bios or the cable inside the laptop.In some case the usb cable inside get fault and it will not detect the web cam.In normal case if you plug any usb device it will detect the usb device then the os will show new hardware found and will allow you to install the software for it,if it doesnt detect you cannot install the driver for it and in the yahoo messenger it give the message
First try to plug in your Cam into the system and when it detects and pops 'windows found new hardware and installing software for it' put in the cd into the drive and choose to find/search the drivers location of the Cd.
If it doesn't not sovle your problem then first put in the CD and install any EXE file (most probably the driver installation file) and restart your PC and then after that connect your Camera to the System hopefully this would solve your problem inshallah.
The model number is on the white sticker attached near the end of the cord. If you dont have that, I have drivers for the model EW192AA. I dont know if that would work, but if you think they would you can email me at trevorag at gmail.com
Most of the Web cams dont have build in mic, but if you had it with your cam, try to plug in the red plug at the back of your CPU in the red plug in beside the green plug in. use plug and play wizard that helps you to try the mic of your cam if it really works.
