Normal 0 Did you install the software with the camera connected tothe computer? Disconnect the camera from the USB port and reinstall thesoftware. When the program asks you to connect the camera, do so, and itshould work. Hope this is of some help. Bud

Below is info for setting up Audio & Video to chat online after you install , either Skype or a messenger program.


Web Camera’s have to besetup on the program they are to be used with. Just installing the camera on your computer does not set it up to broadcaston messengers or Skype.

Each program has Options that have to be setup in order forthe 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 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 see andtalk to you.

B. Yahoo Setup:

After downloading and installing Yahoo Messenger set it upas 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 LiveMessenger:

  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: You audio andvideo shoud work. Enjoy.

When done both the Audio and Video will function properly soyou can chat and see family or friends you are connected to.
Hope this helps. Bud

I'm having problems with the messaging on my samsung tocco lite mobile phone! :( it wont let me access any of my messages when i press the messages icon it comes up with 'initialising' and a loading sign!...


This sometimes happens, if you have just turned off your phone this will more o rless always happen. Just give it a couple of minutes and if this keeps on happening....turn off the phone take off the back and take out the battery and sim card. Leave it for a minute or two and then put them back in and turn on your phone. Then go back onto messages, it will still be happening, leave it for a minute or two and it should be absouletly fine, the sim is just taking a long time to load thats all, there is not really much you can do! I hope this helped (:

It says "no maps found"


I had the same problem before on a TomTom GO 730. The free internal memory was too small to hold the updated map so installation failed (the download to PC was OK, the message is misleading).
It's a TomTom software bug to not check on the available free memory properly before the update process is started.
My TomTom device required a new software install from scratch. Remove any excess MP3 or unused voices before you retry the update.

If you have access to another computer with internet access, make sure that computer has the most upto date antivirus and malware scanners installed and slave your harddrive to it. As a slave you will be able to scan your harddrive without initialising your copy of Windows and therefore not initialising the virus on your harddrive.

T.sonic cannot operate after it was formatted in Windows
Formatting T.sonic using the “Quick Format” or “Full Format” option in Windows destroys the
default format of the T.sonic. To retrieve the default format, you must link to
http://www.transcendusa.com/ and download the firmware updates for the T.sonic.
