I just checked the manufacturers documents for this web cam. It is only compatible with windows vista and xp, provided that the xp installation has at least service pack 2 installed( there is also a service pack 3 now). Are all of your windows updates up to date including at least service pack 2 ? If the windows updates are up to date I would try the installation once more with the CD that came with the web cam. If the same error message appeared, I would go to the manufacurers web site and download the drivers and attempt the installation that way.

Im am trying to install a veo stingray to my computer but it's not going through and is not connecting

Please first check if your Operating System is compatible with your camera:
  • Start>right click Computer>Properties and you will enter System where under Windows Edition is name of your Operating System.
  • The camera you have is compatible with Microsoft Windows 98/ME/2000/XP
  • If you are running a latter edition of Operating System, then you probably need other camera. I also recommend you contact manufacturer to provide you update if available.
It is good to know that at installing a camera, you need to plug in the camera, insert CD with driver software and start installation (double click on "exe." file within files on the disc: Computer>DVD drive double click, double click on ".exe" file and confirm/allow). Unplug the camera and restart your computer after installing. Then plug in the camera again-should be automatically recognized.

My cam not working

I would like to hear more details, so please write again and describe your problem.

I also recommend you to try following:
1. Uninstall your camera:
  1. Start>Control Panel>Programs>Uninstall a program
  2. Scroll down and find your camera in the list of programs, click on it
  3. Click "Uninstall/Change
  4. Confirm uninstalling
  5. Restart your computer
2. Reinstall the camera:
  • Insert your camera CD and plug in/connect the camera to computer. If the program starts installing automatically, then just wait and confirm if prompted. After the installation is complete:
  • restart computer, plug in the camera-it should be automatically recognized and work fine.
A. In case the installation does not start automatically, follow these steps:
  • Insert your camera CD and plug in/connect the camera to computer.
  • Click on Computer (on your desktop OR start>computer)>double click on DVD RW Drive (OR when the CD inserted a pop-up window appears, so click on "Open folder to view files")>double click on icon marked as ".exe" which is executive file. The installation will start, and you only confirm/continue/allow if prompted.
  • After the installation is complete, restart your computer, plug in the camera-it should be automatically recognized and work fine.
3. I also recommend you to visit this link, because I suspect your camera driver is not compatible with your Operating System since there is a short list of Operating Systems compatible with your camera.
  • select your Operating System (if not listed, then my suspicions are true and you can only contact support on the same site to possible link you to update downloads for your camera drive. If your Operating System is listed then follow the steps below:)
  • select the device (camera)
  • you will get a list of possible downloads and I recommend you to download the "utilities" one as I assume u do have the drive (if you don't have the camera drive at all and that is the reason for it not working, then download the drive from the same site and follow installation steps from 2.)
  • Run the downloaded drive-it should update your camera's drive.
4. In the end, check following:
  • Start>right click Computer>Properties>choose Device Manager in the left pane and see if there is any item marked with yellow triangle or something similar (just making it different than others)
  • Now you have two options: 1. right click on the item>Properties>Check for solutions, and then wait until you get the report from Microsoft;
2. right click on the item>Uninstall and close it. Then run Windows Update and install updates. Windows Update you can find when click on Start and in the search pane type Windows Update, click on it when appears, choose "Check for Updates" and wait until the program finds updates, install updates and restart computer.

Please, let me know how it worked with you, and feel comfortable to ask any questions if you have.

Me pide que instale el driver y esa camara no traia driver..


Por favor mire si la camara es compatible con su sistema operativo. Una camara puede ser instalada automaticamente en vista y no ser compatible con XP.

Si la camara es compatible mire si los controladores son disponible en el sito de la camera (por ejemplo si la camera es Logitech mire

Alguna camara tiene un cd pequenito escuendido adentro del carton de la caja.

Intente llamar el revendedor si todavia no se soluciona. Si la camera es compatible con su sistema tiene que ser instalada automaticamente, o debe de aver el CD con el software.

It seems VEO went out of business or their site has been hacked. (Their site - is now a weird search engine).

It is hard to come by the drivers now, but a Nero Image and ISO Image is hosted here

Nero Image -
ISO Image -
NB: About 154MB

The install CD claims compatibility with Windows 98/ME/2000/XP. It should be compatible with Windows Vista when compatibility mode is used.

Veo webcam compatability with windows vista


The general install procedure for USB devices is to install the drivers/software first then connect the device. The PC should then detect and initialize the device.

I however recommend you check and follow manufacture's guidance/steps.

If you don't have the drivers/softwrae, download the drivers/software from the link below.

Nero Image -
ISO Image -
NB: About 154MB. You need to extract the CD Image file or burn it to CD using appropriate software.

The install CD claims compatibility with Windows 98/ME/2000/XP. It should be compatible with Windows Vista when compatibility mode is used.
