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 (http://www.skype.com/intl/en-gb/download/skype/windows/beta/downloading/ ) 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 (http://www.soft32.com/download_30.html ) 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

Windows 3.1 won't recognize these I.3 webcams I got


Windows 3.1 runs on an old PC, without any USB connector.
Perhaps you mean windows 8.1?
You can be right, because since windows 7, Microsoft is only making drivers for certified equipment. Most factories, only try to get certification on windows 8, for their new camera's And the factories also can't (or won't?) develop new drivers so their older cams can be used on new operating systems. I had the same experience with a very expensive Logitec remote controlled webcam. On the box is compatible with Windows Vista. But when I first bought it, I could download a driver from Logitec, so the camera worked perfect.
After I reinstalled my windows 7 recently. My cam would not work as it did before and I could not get the same drivers I had before.

So the want you to buy new computers for the new software, and then replace all the equipment attached, because your can't install correct drivers for the old gear.

Questions:
Does your computer see other USB devices?
Does your computer make any sort of noise or pop up any sort of window/error message when you plug in your Camera?
Does the Camera work on any other computer?

Your computer should give you some indication that a USB device has been installed, if it doesn't then there is something wrong with the device or the computer.

I have an external Card Reader that either works or doesn't. No Idea why this happens... the computer either sees the Reader but wont install the drivers, or sees the Reader and works perfectly.

I can only assume that it is either the cable that is attached to it or there is some sort of fault internally. But, my computer always lets me know if the device was installed properly.

I have a HD5000 that was working till yesterday properly. now i receive the massage in skype that no webcam is connected. also in the HD5000-application itself i have the same massage. who had the same...


I'm assuming that you have tried a different USB socked with the same result. This has nothing to do with the software, it's a hardware fault. You can check that simply by booting from a Linux Live-Cd and see if the webcam is recognized. Most likely it has just failed.
This is unfixable, you will have to buy a new one.

My computer says it can't detact my webcam. everytime I go to it, it says no wecam detected.


The first step will be to check to see that your computer recognizes that anything is detected. to do this you should:
  1. Open your Control Panel (Make sure it's set to "Classic View")
  2. Click on "System".
  3. Go to the Hardware tab and click on "Device Manager".
  4. If your computer does recognize the camera, it should show up under "Imaging Devices".
If it does not, then it should show up under "Other Devices".
  1. Right click on the camera there, and click "Update driver"
  2. Now, follow the on screen instructions, and windows should get your camera working.
If your camera is recognized, but still doesn't show up, then you probable have a problem with whatever program is trying to use it. For that, I would need to know what program that is.

When I plug in the webcam, it says USB DEVICE NOT RECOGNIZED


These camera seem to be delicate. Call Microsoft support number that is on the documentation and they will send you another one. I did this and the replacement VX-3000 works perfectly.

Green light is on mine, but USB port shows no device. When I plug it in, I get "found new device" message, but no icon on my desktop. None of my messengers recognize it either. It does show up in cameras and scanners though...I'm so confused.
