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.

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.
It sounds like you need the drivers for this particular webcam. Go to this link to download the newest drivers. Install them like you would a program and hopefully this will rectify the problem you are having.
Click Start from the taskbar in the lower-left corner of your computer screen.
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.
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.
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.)
first look on your cam for the model number and brand

Hope this helps. Bud
uninstall everything. unplug the cam. restart. put cd in. run the auto run and it will install the drivers and program for the cam. after its done take the cd out. plug in your cam. the PnP will find it and automatically update the drivers and recognize the cam. it should work then.
