Question about Logitech QuickCam Pro 5000 Webcam

5 Answers

Camera is not working

I would be very grateful for help. I have just purchased a Logitech QuickCam Pro 5000 and whilst installing the software, at the point where it asks for the USB cable to be inserted, a dialogue appeared saying "no camera detected" (we have tried various USB ports). Conversely, balloon messages appeared at the bottom of the screen saying that devices had been detected. When I use Skype the camera does not turn on, nor does the sound come through the head-phones.

    I am trying to install this webcam on an iMac OSX .5.1 Leapord. I have been told by tech support that I should be able to just plug it in and play. I have connected it to the USB. There is no sign of power on the camera at all. Neither does the Mac indicate it has detected it. Please help.

This sometimes happens with the cd driver, uninstall your driver first, the try loading this driver,CRID=1794,contentid=11022. Just check that when Windows says device is detected, see if it actually states your camera make and model, then says, your hardware is installed and ready to use, and NOT your hardware is installed but may not work correctly. If you still have problems, see this page, as there are a few workarounds.

Try re installing the drivers as that is what will enable the video effects or better still try a similair thing within windows movie maker 2 and see if all goes to plan.

Logitech QuickCam Pro 5000 using Vista

Assuming you installed the Vista driver and not the generic driver in windows, you would also have to set up the sound in the individual IM programmes. If you have installed the driver but accidently let the pc use a generic one, uninstall the camera software and download this driver and install, ensuring that wherever you download it to is where windows looks for the correct driver.,CRID=1794,contentid=11022 If you still have no luck, try using the xp driver that will probably be on the cd rom you got with the cam. Lastly, not all camera makes perform correctly on all makes of pc, it's hit and mis so if the cam does not work under any circumstances, return to the retailer and exchange for a different make.

Can't install camera from Logitech Quickcam Pro 5000 on my Gateway laptop

If you mean that it will not install at all, and mean that windows won't recognise your cam; it maybe that you have not updated windows installer 3.1 after you have done a clean install. Click on link to download, apologies if this is'nt what you mean.
