Device not Available?

I just got my webcam, it's been used on other computers before, but I have a MUCH older one. I'm on Windows 2000, but it's good enough for my iPod to run on and my old webcam has worked before. Everytime I hit capture in the webcam center, it says, "The device is not available, it may be used by another resource." Did I install it wrong?

I would suggest, that the camera driver may have duplicate instances for some reason, so remove cam, uninstall the software and start again to see if this cures the problem. Also try using a different usb port.

Will i be about to use with both my laptop running Windows 7 AND my desktop running Windows XP? is making a seperate folders for each computer enough?


Yes, because boyj Windows xp and windows 7 utilize the NTFS file system. If it was windows 2000 or earlier, they wouldn't, as they would have different file systems. NTFS versus FAT32 for the older operating systems.

How to fix a error 48 with itunes


The message does not indicate that there is an issue with the iPod but that that iTunes was unable to read the iPod software update it uses to restore or update your iPod. You can delete the folder containing the iPod software update files so iTunes can download a new copy of the iPod software update.

Here are the steps to take if you get this message:

Eject iPod and quit iTunes.
Use Disk Utility in Mac OS X or run chkdsk in Windows to verify there are no other issues on your hard drive.
Locate the iPod Software Updates folder:
In Mac OS X, the folder is
/Users/username/Library/iTunes/iPod Software Updates
In Windows Vista, the folder is
C:\Users\username\AppData\Roaming\Apple Computer\iTunes\iPod Software Updates
In Windows XP and Windows 2000, the folder is
C:\Documents and Settings\yourusername\Application Data\Apple Computer\iTunes\iPod Software Updates

Note: If you don't see the files in Windows, turn on the Show hidden files option.
Windows Vista: Open Computer and choose Folder and Search Options from the Organize menu.
Windows XP and 2000: Open My Computer and click Folder Options from the Tools menu.
Click the View tab.
In the Advanced Settings pane, select the "Show hidden files and folders" button.
Click OK.
Drag the iPod Software Updates folder to the Trash or Recycle Bin.
Connect iPod and open iTunes. You will need to be connected to the Internet to download the files.

I don't have the soft ware to use it in my pc, but ihave the product. what to do.


http://www.opendrivers.com/driver/233207/umax-astrapix-pc100-digital-camera-driver-windows-98se-me-2000-xp-free-download.html

Try to search the Internet using a search engine like Bing.com or Google.com.

Enter 'Umax AstraPix PC100 Driver' and you should come up with a variety of sites that maintain the driver for your personal web camera.

Note that some older cameras do not work on Windows 7. You did not specify what operating system you have on your pc.

Good luck on this installation.

My webcam is not working after installating windows 7


If it is an older webcam, the most likely Microsoft decided that you have used your webcam long enough and it's time for you to buy another.
They do this by not taking the time to write drivers for older hardware.
I wouldn't be surprised if they get a kick-back from the peripheral manufacturers by forcing people to buy new equipment.
What is the make and model number of the webcam?

Does one have to have apple computer for ipod one touch


Are you going to (www.apple.com/itunes/download) to download the latest version of iTunes? Also I would suggest attempting the download with your firewall/anti-virus software disabled. As they can sometimes cause the itunes download to not complete or download with missing files. They are not viruses but sometimes the different softwares will think they are malicious. You do not have to own an apple computer to use an apple iPod. Just make sure that your Operating System on your PC is up to date an you should be good to go. If your not downloading iTunes version 8.1.1.10 then it's not the latest version. :)

Apple ipod not getting charged


Hello,
First, please check your connection (I'm sure you have already done this). Make sure that the cable is plugged in and working on both ends.
If that is fine, I would recommend taking it back and getting a new one. If you just recently purchased it, you should be able to return without a problem. It sounds like you might have a defective product and you don't want to get stuck with it after the return period.
Good news is that when you get the new one, if you use iTunes, it will automatically sync up and you wont have to manually load songs.
Hope this was helpful but if you still have questions, let me know.
Have a great day
