Check and see how much memory you have installed in your computer. It take additional memory to operate the camera. It could be another problem if you have enough memory.
Hope this helps. Bud

I want to add my web camera on my computer


Install the software first and follow the on-screen instructions. During software installation, you are prompted to connect the web camera's USB cable to the computer's USB port. Then you can mount the web camera onto your computer. Plug the microphone and headphone cable connectors into the computer's audio jacks.

Need driver for my Gigaware web cam


The entire installation cd here: http://d01.megashares.com/index.php?d01=6b830bb. It‘s an image file that you‘ll have to burn to a cd. You can use a program like Nero, Imgburn, Roxio, or any other program that deals with iso images. Burn the cd, install the driver, and then start using your webcam!

I had a MYRIAD of problems when I first got mine. I took it back after spending ENDLESS HOURS trying to tweak it.

It was the device itself; I traded it for another (same model; same everything). The first one was just a lemon. The second one has worked like a champ.

Webcam installation


Go to the link that I have below, on that page (The logitech support page) you will see many pictures of their different cameras. Look until you find the picture of yours if it is there, and click on it.

http://www.logitech.com/index.cfm/405/&cl=us,en?prodcrid=405

From that page you should be able to download the installation for your camera. Good luck, and let me know if there is anything else I can do to help you.

My cam is green.


Hi, You have to reset the camera settings. In your Camera Preferences, switch between setting of Low light, AE, Outdoors, etc., Apply and choose what setting is to your preference, Apply again and OK. I found that setting the Camera's Options/Preferences while using Yahoo Messenger sets the camera to my desired setting (no longer greenish). However, it reverts back once I rebooted. Hope this be of help/idea. Post back how things are or should you need additional information. Good luck and kind regards.

When i use my web cam everything shows up green.


Well, I tried everything on this list in a matter of 5 minutes. Nothing worked. Then I made the old DSL modem analogy.

Plug in your camera.
Right click on My Computer, go to Properties.
Go to the Hardware panel, and click on device manager.
Find your camera listing in there (probably under imaging devices).
Right click on it, and select uninstall.
Unplug your camera and then replug it in.

Worked for me. Of course, take SilverDragon's advice before mine - you don't want to be configuring the wrong device for hours and not getting any picture at all.
