I'M NOT QUITE SURE WHAT YOU ARE SAYING HERE. DO YOU NOT HAVE THE SOFTWARE OR NOT HAVE A DISC DRIVE? IF YOU DON'T HAVE THE SOFTWARE, MOST SOFTWARE CAN BE FOUND ONLINE AT YOUR WEBCAM MAKER SITE. IF YOU DON'T HAVE A DISC DRIVE, DOWNLOADING THE SOFTWARE FROM THE WEBSITE WOULD WORK AROUND THIS. HOPE THIS HELPS. IF NOT REPLY TO ME AND WE'LL WORK IT OUT.

You should see your webcam from there.
If you have trouble with your webcam:
Click start control panel-administrative tools-computer management-device manager-scroll down image
devices you could see a yellow question mark ?

right click to reinstall drivers or update driver xp.
Click start right click on
computer select properties device manager scroll to image devices expand right
click to update driver in W7
http://download.cnet.com/2000-20_4.html
on the home page you should
see a search tab just type in what you are looking for IE:
webcam name webcam driver you might have to try a few times to get it right
software if you don\'t have the driver you will need to download one here rather doing a driver hunt, which can take hours.

Windows XP/Vista/7/8
It might take some time being a freeware driver solution.
note: It will find all of your outdated drivers.
This is a free driver solutions.
This will automatically search for and find the correct driver.
You will have to update every driver individually once you update. You might be
asked whether you want to restart or make a system restore. Point click no to both of these, then continue updating each driver free, then restart once all of the drivers have been updated.
Some webcams and programs require additional software, although that should be installed with the webcam if things are right. But it doesn\'t hurt to check if your Java, Flash and Quicktime software are installed and up to date.
But certainly check your DirectX software, since all video applications, including
webcams, use DirectX for video processing. Try downloading the latest DirectX version and install it (Windows XP: DirectX 9.0c Windows Vista: DirectX 10).
http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows7/Which-version-of-DirectX-is-on-your-computer
If you still have no webcam installed, Run the "Add a device"application, accessed by clicking on the "Start" button, opening the "Control Panel," and then double-clicking on "Add a device."
The "Add a device" window will open and Windows will search for devices connected to your system but not installed.
Click on the webcam name that shows in the search box and
then click "Next."
Choose whether you want Windows to search for the webcam
device driver using Windows Update over the Internet, or if you\'d prefer to
have the device manager search for the driver using a disc supplied by your
laptop manufacturer. Most drivers can be found on the system recovery disc
included with your laptop, if you choose to add the driver from the provided disc.
Place a check in the box next to your choice and then click "Next" to continue.
Wait while Windows searches from the driver using Windows
Update, if this was your choice.
An active Internet connection is required for Windows to
successfully do this. Allow the computer to install the driver and then reboot
the system for the webcam to become recognized by the system.
Otherwise, you can use the system recovery disc or a driver
downloaded directly from your laptop manufacturer to install the driver without
using the Windows Update search feature.
Open the CD/DVD-ROM drive and insert the system recovery
disc, or place the driver downloaded from the manufacturer in an easily
accessed file directory on your PC, such as on the desktop, or in your "My
Documents" folder.
Choose the option "Install the software automatically
(Recommended)" in the "Add a device" application, and press
"Next" to begin searching for your webcam driver.
The hardware wizard will search the system recovery disc and
install the driver automatically. Press "Finish" to close the wizard
and then reboot the computer to allow recognition of the webcam.
Choose the option "Install the software manually"
in order to browse to the driver location where you saved the driver and
install it from there.
Use the opened file manager and locate the driver.
Click the "Next" button to install the
driver, then reboot the computer to add webcam functionality.

I can not use my installation CD for my digital camera( Slick DC 14s)


Hi Mom
The disc is only a photo software program that will allow you to do different things with the photos. You have a web cam on that camera and if you go here:

and download/run this program it should have the drives to enable the webcam plus more for photo fixing.
Good luck,
Darcy

I changed my windows to 7 and saw may web cam dont active


Before your webcam would become active again, you have to install the driver that came with it.
You can do this by two ways.
In the first way, if you have any installation disc that came with your laptop that deals mainly on installing drivers for the computer peripherals, you can insert and run this disc. This would enable you to install the drivers for your computer and it would work properly again,
On the other hand, you can go online and proceed to the website. there is usually a section under the personal page for the laptop model and when you access it, you can download the driver for the webcam and install it.
After installation, you should be able to use your webcam again.
Hope this was helpful? Please comment for more information and thank you for using FixYa

Can i use it as Webcam? If so how?


It's actually made for point and shoot purposes only. But if you badly need it as a webcam you can try these steps: 1. install the s930 software disc.
2. plug in the camera to your computer via usb.
3. After installation, restart the computer.

If you use Yahoo Messenger, go to preference , then webcam, then select your camera then press OK and test the camera. Same logic applies to other messenger apps.

Disclaimer: Better to use an actual webcam w/c is easy to setup and use

How can i record a video with A4TECH Webcam ?


Hello,

When you bought this, you should have the installation disc. The disc contains the driver and the utility for the webcam. You should install it and then should be able to access it via the Programs on your Windows machine.

You can also try to press the button on the upper part of your camera and see if it starts up a recording program.

Good luck!

I need to find a way to install the 25-157 gigaware webcam without the disc


Windows plug and play feature may handle it. plug it in while connected to the internet. If widows doesn't do it automatically, then search drivers on google with exact make and model, there are plenty of free driver websites out there. The install discs usually install useless programs.
