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

Good Morning, I keep getting a warning "unable to


This camera will only handle a 16GB capacity flash card the camera Firmware will not allow for larger cards. I ran into a similar problem (different camera) but solved the dilemma with updating the camera firmware. I can only suggest you check out your camera model on the Sony web site for updates if you purchase Memory Cards larger then 16GB. If you have cards under 16GB check make sure your camera is set for memory card and not reading from the Internal memory. Another crazy thing is make sure your clock is working (day date & time) and set correctly.

Good morning can i use my canon powershot a 470 camera as a web cam ?


No, you cannot use the PowerShot as a web cam. It was designed as a camera, to store images (and incidentally, videos) to a memory card. It was not designed to stream live images to another device.

Having a prolem accessing a Hawking wireless camera from the internet.


Also In order to connect to your camera you may need to get access from your computer. I would ask a friend to send a signal from there computer to your computer and see what happens on your end. That may solve your problem.

Hope This Helps
All The Best,

DCS-1000w through Dlink DIR-655 router


These cameras are touchy. Hold the reset button on the back in for about 20-30 seconds. Bring up the CD software you got with the camera, it should spot the camera right off and you can configure. That seems to be the only way I can communicate with this model. After setup, then browsers, etc seem to work fine. I would also download the latest Firmware and update.
