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?

Ok. Find the CD you got with the camera, plug in the camera and insert the CD, start installation. After the installation is complete, disconnect the camera and restart your laptop, plug in the camera again after restarting laptop-the device should be automatically recognized.

Can't get webcam to work on messenger, it used to work, I must be doing something wrong do h I have to download a program


Reinstall you webcam drivers doing the following:

Unplug your webcam from your computer.
  1. Reboot your computer.
  2. Insert your webcam's manufacturer installation CD into the CD-ROM drive and follow the installation prompts.
Note: If the setup program doesn't start automatically within a few seconds, you need to manually start the installation process.
To manually start the installation process:
  1. Click Start from the taskbar in the lower-left corner of your computer screen.
  2. Open the Run window and type d:\setup in the text area.
    Note: The "d" indicates the path to your CD-ROM drive. If your CD-ROM drive is located in a different path, you need to replace the "d" with the correct path.
  3. If you've downloaded the most recent software driver from the webcam manufacturer's website, run that installation program now.
    Note: Most webcam manufacturers maintain the latest webcam software drivers on the download or support areas of their website. Just download it and save it to your computer.
  4. Follow the instructions provided by the webcam setup program.
    Note: Plug in your webcam USB cord only when prompted. (This is usually done after rebooting your computer.)

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
