I have an Acer Aspie 5571 AWXMI Lap Top. Off late now every time I open the ''orbicam'' it says ''the camera is use by another application'' but there is really no other application which is usng the cam.


1. remove the installed OrbiCam application and reboot if required;
2. install the new driver (preferably with the “driver update” wizard from Device Manager)
3. update the Orbicam application 1.0.0.13

This worked for me..
Un-installed the drivers and utilities for the camera.
Went here .. http://support.acer-euro.com/drivers/notebook/as_5100.html
downloaded and installed the Bison 6.96.0.12a driver. (using the right click as mentioned by TimC).
Tested working fine with C:\Windows\BisonXXX …now just to get it working with messenger and Logitech QuickCAM 10.5 for Vista…I’ll keep you posted.
Cheers

For those still wondering how to get your Acer OrbiCam - Logitech to work, I have searched the world over with far too many times failing to get my Aspire 5670 to recognize and work with its built-in webcam. But recently I was fortunate enough to finally find out that installing the latest drivers didn’t work at all whereas a particular old one worked well both on XP and Vista OS.

You should go to this link:
http://www.driverstock.com/Acer-Aspi...131/index.html

Download the zip file then save all contents in a folder that you will browse to use later.

Do not use the setup.exe from that folder. It won’t work… Just go to Device Manager and Uninstall your current driver of Acer OrbiCam. Then click, Update Driver, and point to the folder of those unzip files. Let it install then restart your computer.

When the computer restarts go to Skype or any communication/camera software you’re using and set the video camera. Voila, this time you will see the video coming on to the screen after about 10-15 seconds of black screen.

I have to thank that site for the download.

Last but not least, please remember that this one driver (version 9.4.0.1120) works very well on both XP and Vista… You don’t need to update it to any other higher version!

As for other Acer Aspire models, just check other pages from that website… I have no way of knowing since I only have my model. But I think you will be able to make use of your OrbiCam once again.

Best of Luck and Enjoy Video Chatting!

PS I think if you get only that driver file (version 9.4.0.1120) from the link after unzipping, please see whether putting only that driver in a new folder and install in Device Manager will get your camera to work too. If so, it will be nice for you to just upload that driver file and paste your link here so that others can just download this file and not all others from the link above.

Check out this link below, it IS a common problem

Nero 6 has stopped working properly. A newer version of this software is available for download that addresses this problem. Nero AG recommends updating to take advantage of security and stability...


Instead, go to "Add/Remove Programs", and choose to UNINSTALL the Nero software.

Then, access http://www.MajorGeeks.com and search for "AShampoo Burning" -- Version '6' of their software is a *FREE* download, and it works fine, even though Version '9' is the current version.

Acer OrbiCam stopped .


http://www.acerpanam.com/synapse/forms/portal20.cfm?website=AcerPanAm.com&siteid=7117&areaid=2&formid=3394#results

The above link is for a webpage that links to drivers for your laptop. There are a number of different OrbiCam drivers for you to choose from. Download the drivers and manually update them instead of having the computer search for updated drivers.

Hope this helps.

Acer orbicam


There are two software entities involved – the camera Drivers and the OrbiCam application itself – and BOTH need replacing/updating to fix this problem.
The new driver and a new version of webcam application (below) seem to fix the issue.
The correct files to download are:
Acer Orbicam driver (Bison)
Acer Orbicam Bison utility 1.0.0.13

These can be found here under the MS Windows Vista drop down menu:
http://support.acer-euro.com/drivers/notebook/as_9300.html
In order to fix the problem, you must download and install them both to make the Orbicam work correctly.

FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTIONS BELOW IN THE SAME ORDER:
1. remove the installed OrbiCam application and reboot if required;
2. install the new driver (preferably with the “driver update” wizard from Device Manager)
3. update the Orbicam application 1.0.0.13

After this, the webcam should function properly, even if the original Orbicam icon disappears.
To check everything is working OK run LiveCa07.exe or BisonM07.exe that are located in the c:\windows\bisonxxx\ folder or simply run Messenger
