How can i install my webcam (microsoft VX-3000) if i lost the CD ?


Hi there,
You can still download the drivers from the links below for your windows
For Windows 7 LifeCam 3.2 32-bit and 64-bit for Windows 7

VX-1000 Initialization error


Better used the cd installer that comes with the camera make sure its compatible to your Operating System (Xp, Vista)..if this fails you have a problem with the camera...if you change the camera and still doesnt work..try to plug it in the usb at the back of your pc..maybe its just a power problem with the usb connection..hope this works!

Error Msg: Problem occure during Hardware installation


Having Nero installed can cause this problem. This is from the Microsoft Knowledge base. There are some other programs that can cause this problem. Search "Lifecam Program" I believe I have tracked the problem down to this. I have not uninstalled Nero yet, But Nero crashes when trying to launch it video utilities. So at this point I am presuming that tere is a conflict.

LifeCam VX-1000 on Windows Vista Dell 1521 Turion 64


I just checked to verify that Microsoft does indeed offer a Vista compatible download for that cam. If you are serious about using the cam on the Vista machine, maybe you should try downloading the driver directly from Microsoft. It is entirely possible that the CD drive on your Vista machine is having problems reading the CD that came with the webcam and the download would be a direct install from the hard drive. Heck, it's worth a try, don't ya think.

Software won't work with vista


Uninstall Windows Vista. Do a fresh install of Windows XP Professional Sp2. Download XP drivers and install camera. Many software programs have trouble initializing in Windows Vista. Good luck!
