Question about Microsoft LifeCam VX-1000 WIN-Blk Webcam

1 Answer

1 camera working and 1 not.

My boyfriend and I got these cameras (the package that comes connected with 2 of the same cameras) and all of the effects work on his, but they don't on mine.
On his you can do the big mouth, big eyes, big nose, and all the effects like that and on mine none of those are available.
The only effects I can use are like a few of the backgrounds like the fish or the pizza, stuff like that.
But I wanna be able to use the face distorting ones.
Why is it working on his camera and not mine? How do I fix this?

Why is my camera is not connecting to my pc

1) What brand camera is it? 2) What are you connecting it with? 3) if you cannot connect it, does the camera have a SD drive? 4) Use the SD drive to transfer pics to PC. Buy a cheap SD card reader that connects to a computer via a USB cable. Instructions are on its package. Good luck.

I have a sony Vaio VGN_FZ4000, after upgrading to Windows7, it says there is no camara instaled, I went to sony help but all they have are software for the camara no drivers. the camera my laptop have is...

Those 2 software packages offered by Sony on their web site, (a) ArcSoft Magic-i Visual Effects, and
(b) WebCam Companion Software, may just include the driver necessary to get their packages to
work with Win7 - pick one an install it - if the camera works, you got the driver. If the camera still
refuses to work, then all you have to do is de-install the package, install the other one and
give that a try.

The computer does not reconize the camcorder

The first step you have to take to connect your camera to your computer is to ensure that you have installed the software that came with your camera on your computer. You should insert the CD into your computer's drive and the installation screen should load automatically. If it doesn't, you should open the drive's icon that the CD is in, then double click PICTURE PACKAGE. When the menu opens up you should then choose INSTALL. It should install the First Step Guide. Once the install is finished, and you click the NEXT arrow, you should be shown a screen that will allow you to install the ImageMixer VCD2. When that is complete the software might ask you if you want to install the Microsoft Direct X software. This may not show up if you already have that software installed. Chances are if anyone plays any games on your computer that software will already be installed. If not you can click the Install button for the Direct X package. If the system finds a newer version already installed it will display a message to that effect. If not, then it will install their version.

After all of the programs are installed a window will come up asking you to restart your computer. Go ahead and do so. Once your desktop is loaded back up, you should see icons on the desktop for Picture Package Menu and Picture Package Destination folder, as well as an icon for the First Step Guide. Now you should be able to connect your camera to the computer with the supplied USB cable. If you make the connection, and the computer does not recognize the camera do the following:

1) Disconnect and re-connect the cable at both the camera and computer end.

2) Disconnect all other USB devices from your computer, but leave your keyboard and mouse connected. Reboot the computer and once the desktop is loaded try and connect the camera again.

3) If you have more than one USB connection free on the computer try and use all of the other connections until one works.

If none of the above steps work then you will have to try and re-install your USB drivers from the supplied CD. To do so you will have to first delete the drivers that exist. Follow these steps carefully to do so:

1) Make sure your camera is connected to your computer.

2) Right Click My Computer and choose Properties.

2) When the System Properties window appears choose the Hardware tab, then the Device Manager button, then choose the View menu and make sure Devices by type has a black dot beside it.

3) Find the following devices in the folder names beside them. You will right click them and choose Uninstall. This will delete them from your computer. The devices are
A) USB Composite Device in the Universal Serial Bus Controller folder.
B) USB Audio Device in the Sound, video, and game controller folder.
C) USB Device in the Other devices folder.

The system will ask you to confirm that you want to uninstall those items. Confirm them. Once they have all been uninstalled follow the steps given in the first part of this answer to install all of the necessary programs that came on the CD with your camera.

If you are still having problems getting the computer to recognize your camera after all of this then there maybe a hardware problem with either the camera or your computer. An easy way to check this would be to try another USB device in the port that you are trying to connect your camera to. If the device works then either your camera, or the cable you are using may be defective. You would have to take your camera and cable to a Sony store to have them check them out.
If the device doesn't work then there maybe an issue with your USB ports on the computer. If you are familiar with the BIOS of your computer you can check it to see if the USB ports are turned on and if they are displaying any error messages. If you are not familiar with the BIOS on your computer then you will have to take into your local shop and have them test *********** board out.

Thank you for the opportunity to assist you in resolving your issue. Should you need further information or assistance please do not hesitate to let us know.

First, I need to ask the dumb questions:
1. Are both computers running XP?
2. When you connect the camera, do you turn the camera on?
3. Do other USB devices work when connected to the same
USB PORTS you are using to connect the camera?

Ok, since the camera is not recognized at all on both computers, we can pretty much disregard USB PORT failure, but just in case, try different USB PORTS on both, please.

Most if not all cameras should be recognized as mass storage devices just by connecting them to USB PORT on computer, and should be visible as a new drive in MY COMPUTER icon.

Maybe your bundled USB CABLE is not working, or this is one camera that insists on using the bunbled software package that came with the camera.

Last thing to try is to buy a multi-card reader/writer and put the memory card in there. That has to work!

Hope that helps.

Hi jenn8918,
I had the same problem until a friend of mine told me to use Energizer LITHIUM batteries instead (Silver and blue packaging).
 I will warn you ahead they are expensive (1 pack of 2 goes for about & $ 8:00 to $9.00 but they last quite a while (and I use my camera every day practically) they last me about 3 to 4 months. using anything other than the Lithium batteries is a waste of money ...believe me, I've learned my lesson by trying every "super" alkaline battery only to quit on me after 1 hrs use!

Good luck.
