Question about Microsoft LifeCam VX-1000 WIN-Blk Webcam

1 Answer

"Camera in use by another program"

I have installed the cd-rom and even downloaded the newest driver for this webcam.My laptop also recognizes the device. However, when I try to open a screenshot for the webcam program, it pops up with "Camera in use by another program" even though I have no other programs running. And when I attempt to open it through Skype all there is just a black screen.

What I missing?

Webcam no worky!


first look on your cam for the model number and brand

example veo stingray 4420 drivers is what you would type in search,
next go to the websight for drivers or firmware
firmware is same as the cd program, this is a bigger download, under support webcam web pages

to install drivers, start settings control panel classic view should be on, then system on bottom hardware tab device manager, look for yellow mark next to cam, right click properties,update drivers then find cd location on hard drive
or have microsoft update search for it automatic

Normal 0 You need to go to the manufactures site and download the VISTA driver for the camera. Then follow the info below to install the program.



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.
