Normal 0 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.
Then to use it on the Web do this.
Web Camera’s have to be setup on the program they are to be used with. Just installing the camera on your computer does not set it up to broadcast on messengers or Skype.
Each program has Options that have to be setup in order for the Audio and Video to function properly.
A. Skype Setup:
After downloading and installing Skype ( ) set it up as follows:

  1. Go to Tools, then Options, and click on Audio Settings and set the Microphone and Speakers to the computer Audio Card.
  2. Then click on the Video Settings.
  3. The camera if Installed Properly will come up and show a video picture.
  4. Then, on the bottom of the page click on Save.
The camera and audio should function properly. Your friends and Family will now be able to see and her to you.
B. Yahoo Setup:
After downloading and installing Yahoo Messenger ( ) set it up as follows:
  1. Go to Messenger at the top left and click on it.
  2. Next go down to Preferences and click on it.
  3. Next Calling and Devices on the right and set the Microphone and Speakers to the computer Audio Card.
  4. Next go to the Test Audio section and (in blue writing) click on “Open the call setup assistant” and follow the instructions on the left window.
C. Windows Live Messenger:
  1. After you start Windows Live Messenger, expand the view by clicking on the square on top left next to the red X.
  2. Then on the Windows Live messenger window on the right side, click on “ “Show Menus.” And then click on “Show the Menu Bar”.
  3. Next go to the Menu Bar on right side, click on “ “Action.”
  4. Go to “TOOLS” and click “Audio and Video Setting” and follow the instructions.
NOTE: Your audio and video should work. Enjoy.
When done both the Audio and Video will function properly so you can chat and see family or friends you are connected to.
Hope this helps. Bud

ESource USB keyboard. Why does it type duplicate letters?

Have you installed any (included) software for the keyboard? If you haven't, install the software and see if it works properly. If you have the software installed already, try to uninstall it and see if it works without it. If neither of that doesn't work, uninstall software and drivers altogether (via Device Manager) and restart the PC. The computer should recognise the keyboard by itself. After this: check that there are no driver conflicts (no yellow exclamation marks) in Device Manager.

Samsung L100. How do I take pictures off camera itself? Before I got card, I took some photos and I cannot figure out how to take those picture from camera.

Hello there, Just plug the camera to your computer's usb port and turn it on and set it to review mode. Once the computer detected it as a new usb device, RIGHT click on your Windows start button and choose Explore or open Windows Explorer. Then click on My Computer or Computer from the left pane. Look for the drive letter associated to that camera then click on it to show the contents of the camera on the right. Browse thru the folders until you find the pictures. Once u found them, just copy and paste to your local drive. If you need furtherr assistance, please let me know. Thank you for using FixYa.

Windows xp cannot detect kingston datatraveler II

Hello there,

Try plugging your kingston usb thumbdrive to a different usb port and see if the system detects it. If it does not, try restarting your computer then try it again. You can further isolate the problem by plugging the kingston to another computer's usb. If all did not work, then your usb thumbdrive is fried due to not being able to properly disconnecting it from the computer (doing a "safely remove").

Thank you for using FixYa. Merry Christmas.

I have a HP Pavillion zv5000 model #zv5034 and it will not dectect my dedevice a Sansa Fuze mp3 player. what do I do? My opporating system is windows XP thank you

Suggestion 1:

Update Windows:
A lot of times, Windows updates will fix small problems like this. If you haven't updated your Windows OS in a while, it may help.

1. Click Start
2. Click All Programs
3. Select Windows Update

You will be taken to the Windows Updates site and it should be a simple process of updating and restarting.

After that is complete make sure you have the proper software installed that came with your Fuze and then attempt to plug in the Fuze.

Suggestion 2:

If that doesn't work, try updating your USB drivers.

Navigate to HP's Support site and search for available drivers for download. An updated driver might be available for USB. Follow the installation instructions, restart your machine and attempt to plug in the Fuze.

Suggestion 3:

If the Fuze is still not being recognized, find a different USB device, such as a USB printer or USB hard drive, plug it in and observe to find out if the computer will recognize it. If it does, it may mean that there is some sort of software conflict and the Fuze is not recognized as a known device.

When you plug it in, listen for the Windows sound that occurs when a new USB device has been plugged in. If you don't here it, the issue may be related to the USB port itself. Try each USB port on the computer and listen for the "new device" sound.

If you don't hear the sound in one, but you hear the sound on another, try using that one and see what happens.

I'm aware of the mass audience of people who have had annoying experiences with the Fuze and how difficult it can be to make it work, and I hope this isn't one of those cases, but if it is, I would attempt to get your money back and use it on a different MP3 player. The iPod series is excellent and becoming cheaper. The cheapest being the Shuffle at around $50. I use the 3rd Gen Nano and it hasn't skipped a beat for 2 years.

Hope this helps! Good luck.
