Question about Microsoft LifeCam VX-3000 Web Camera

1 Answer

My webcam is not working

When i plug my usb microsoft vx 3000 webcam into a working usb port on my desktop computer a little box pops up on the lower right of the screen saying my computer is detecting a new usb camera device. then a box pops up saying the device is not installed and may not function. sure enough the device wont function so i unplug it and go to the website to download the newest drivers. when i finish downloading the drivers i start to install them, and around half way through the process a box pops up saying there was an unexpected error and the installation was failed. i have tried this many different times with a couple of different versions of the software and i get the same result every time.

Microsoft LifeCam VX-3000

Normal 0 Probably has corrupt driver.
Try disconnecting the Camera from the USB port and reinstall the CD or Downloaded software program. When the program asks you to connect the camera to the USB port, do so and it should work.
Hope this helps. Bud

When I plug in the webcam, it says USB DEVICE NOT RECOGNIZED

These camera seem to be delicate. Call Microsoft support number that is on the documentation and they will send you another one. I did this and the replacement VX-3000 works perfectly.
