I just bought the Creative Live! Notebook webcam for my laptop. On my end, when i invite friend to view my cam, it shows in my bottom left corner of messenger, but when he accepts, it freezes, and shuts itself off. On his end, when he accepts, a little white box pops up and then it shuts off....Any suggestions? I cant seem to find answer or similiar question to this anywhere. =( Please help! Thank you!
P.s.- Product is the NOTEBOOK VERSION of the Creative Live! cam

I have a toshiba satellite too. I had the same problem when i had just
bought my laptop. It seems like it is a software or driver problem,
nothing wrong with the hardware. Do this once or twice and this problem
wont reoccur, it hasn't for me again. Go to device manager and disable
the webcam, restart the computer then go back and enable it. Now the
webcam will for fine with all instant messengers. I remember donig this
few times when my laptop was new. Now its been over a year and this
problem hasnot occured again. I hope this helps you too or your friend.
your cam has to be setup on msn as well After you start Windows Live Messenger, expand the view by clicking on the square on top left next to the red X. Then on the Windows Live messenger window on the right side, click on “ “Show Menus.” And then click on “Show the Menu Bar”. Next go to the Menu Bar on right side, click on Action. Go to “TOOLS” and click “Audio and Video Setting and follow the instructions.
let me know if this helped
Hi, if the camera works corectamente and only it trumps you when you enter MSN, you must reinstall the operating system with the disc of recovery that it brings the machine, it is possible that for manipulation, installation or a virus they have damaged the S.O and because of it there owes the malfuncionamiento of your camera with the MSN.

As long as she is accepting your call when invited it should show up a little MSN advert then show your picture.
The problem may be at your end, so check that you have the cam set up in settings and you both allow video to be accepted, ckeck all the web cam settings and menu options.
If you haven't already, download MSN live messenger.
