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 (http://www.skype.com/intl/en-gb/download/skype/windows/beta/downloading/ ) 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 (http://www.soft32.com/download_30.html ) 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

My logitech webcam won't work in msn messenger....in messenger when i try to make a video call...it says I need to buy or install a webcam? what's the deal? heeeelp


Hi Marilyn,

Have you installed the Logitech Quickcam program? If you did then open the application and select the instant messenger(i.e. MSN, SKype, Yahoo) that you will be using the camera.

If you have note yet installed the Logitech Quickcam application then I suggest you disconnect the webcam and run the software first.

I have a logitech webcam c200 and can't connect it with sites like facebook and blogtv. every time i try the site just tells me that it cant locate a webcam. help?


Visit the Logitech website and browse the photo gallery for your model and click on the photo to navigate to the support page.
Note - Older models on page 2 - look for the link at the bottom right of page 1 and click on it "Still can't find your product?"

In addition to the Logitech installer you will need to check the support software - Microsoft DirectX . This comes pre-loaded on most Windows computers but has to be updated - I am currently on version 11
To start the DirectX Diagnostic Tool, click 'Start', click 'Run', type dxdiag in the Open box, and then click OK
Run through the tabs checking the 'notes' windows for information
The version will be shown on the 'Systems' tab

Procedure to re-install Logitech software
Close all programs while uninstalling - downloading and uploading software
Disconnect your webcam
Uninstall the current webcam software on your computer
Restart computer
Download the Installation package from Logitech
Run the installer and choose your options during the installation - You may not want Logitech Chat but the Desktop icon for the webcam toolbar is a must.
Connect your webcam when prompted.
Before going into the programs, reboot the webcam software by unplugging the webcam for a few seconds.
Do not start the webcam using the Logitech software but allow the program software to have full control.

Error message when installing Logitech webcam


Hi,

If you click on this link,
http://www.logitech.com/index.cfm/support_downloads/downloads/
it'll take you to the Logitech website, and you should click on 'Webcams' in the Product list, and select your webcam version from the Product Name list, then press the arrow and it'll let you download the correct driver for your webcam.
Be sure to get a driver that is XP compatible..

Even if the installation doesn't have a Windows Security Certificate, the Logitech driver software will have the operating system support built in.

If you have problems installing the driver, go to Control Panel, System, Device Manager, and look under Imaging Devices or wherever you see a tellow exclamation mark and double click on the device listing and hit the driver tab, and install the driver from there, choosing the 'Let me choose the driver' type option, and then navigate to the folder you unzipped the driver software to, install, wait and reboot.
Done!

Hope this helps
