Almostr all webcams are provided with an installation disk....... Windows XP recognises certain brands ... But its better to install the drivers and support software for optimum use.

Tip

When installing a Web-Cam make sure your old cam has been uninsulated.


When you set up a new Web-Cam for your computer go under to the computers Start up Key, click the "Computer" button, and you will see a option to pick from. Click "Control Panel" and a list of installed programs, and accessories installed in your computers memory will come up. Find your old Web-Cam under the installed "Device Manager" icon.
Uninstall your old cam, and make sure the New one IS NOT plugged in at this point. After you uninstall the old one, you can then PLUG in the new cam, go back to "Device Manager" and click on "View Hardware and Devices" and your computer should recognize you have new hardware plugged into one of your USB ports, and a balloon should pop up, and Click that ballon, your computer SHOULD read and install the Cam, if not use your "Device Manager" and IF a disk came with your Cam, put it into your computer at this point if you already havent. Your PC should recognize what you are tring to do, and install the Cam. Hope this helps, if not type Web Cam into the search engine in your computers search tab, while under the Device Manager, and it will tell you step by step on how to do lots of things.

Want to use digital cam as web cam and want use hard disk directy


Unfortunately, you're going to have to buy one or two more cameras.

The A470 was not designed to stream images and videos to a computer, but to record them onto a memory card. It cannot be used as a webcam. Nor cannot it be connected to a computer to save images directly to your hard disk.

Canon's digital SLRs can store images directly to your computer using dedicated software, but they cannot be used as webcams.

So, if you want a webcam, you need to acquire one. Likewise, if you want to save images directly to your computer, you need a camera that can do that. Some webcams can record and store still images, but they tend to be rather low-res, often only 640x480 (0.3 megapixels). Even HD video is only 2 megapixels. Webcams and cameras are two completely different things.

PC Wont register Camera is connected


If it is a cam corder, a lot of them only work for stills once hooked up to the PC (via USB). Are you certain the cam be used via a computer.
If the camcorder contains both USB and IEE1394/firewire and your computer has both USB and firewire, then sometimes the USb interface is set to stills only and the firewire interface is set to motion only.
Which make/model?

I believe you need the USB cable and you hook it to the computer and install the software that came with the camera and it should work, I have an A520 and at one time I had it hooked to my computer and really never hooked it up as webcam but I believe the option was there
