Question about Radio Shack VGA PC Camera Webcam

1 Answer

My brand new VPC-T850 Sanyo camera won't let me use the PC Camera. I installed the software on my computer using the CD it came with, but when I turn on my camera and click the PC Camera button, my entire computer shuts down. I've spent hours trying to fix it and I am EXTREMELY fed up. Please help me!

How to install webcam


Following Step to Connect Webcam:-
1. Read the installation instructions completely before attempting to install the camera. Although this may seem tedious and unnecessary, it can save time and headaches in the long run.
2. Back up the computer's hard drive just to be safe. This will allow for a speedy recovery should the installation mess up the computer.
3. Install the webcam software. Before deciding to install the disc that came with the camera, check the Internet for an updated version of the software and download that if available.
4. Plug in the webcam. The software should give a prompt at the appropriate time. Cameras are usually installed with a USB cable. If installed correctly, the computer will acknowledge so by popping up a message saying it can see the new device.
5. Download an instant message program if using the web camera for chatting. Some free IM download programs include Yahoo Messenger, AOL Instant Messenger and Apple iChat.

My daughter gave me a Radio shack Web Cam 02A06 but she did not give me a CD for installation can I still use this?


Yes - you can use the cam but you will need to download some software for it
You have a couple of options ( apart from the CD )

1) Visit the Radio Shack support website and download from here

http://support.radioshack.com/soft.htm

2) If your Computer can identify New Hardware when you plug something into the USB - switch off computer - plug in webcam and start your computer - allow the new software to download automatically before starting any programs.

solution for XP users.
Use the medion driver (MD85081). go to their support pages and search for "webcam". http://www.medion.co.uk/
Once the driver is downloaded, remove the camera if connected.
DON'T CONNECT THE CAMERA BEFORE INSTALLING THE SOFTWARE!
Extract the software (default is c:/Medion folder),
Install the software.
Now you can connect the camera and it will acknowledge it.
Use the start/PC-30/Amcam program to test it. (use Amcam/Devices menu to select the camera)
Good Luck.

I am not sure how to install the software


WARNING: DO NOT connect the camera to your computer before installing the software.
To install the software, insert the Logitech camera software CD into your computer's CD-ROM drive. The Setup screen should appear. If it does not, please perform the following steps:
  1. Click Start and then Run.
  2. Type D:Setup.exe and press the Enter key.
  3. Follow the on-screen instructions.
After the computer reboots, the driver installation for the camera will start. Do not connect the camera until the setup prompts you to connect the camera cable to your computer.
While the driver installation progresses, remove the camera and camera base from the packaging and mount the camera on the camera base.
When prompted, plug the camera into the USB port. You should see the following diagram to let you know where to plug the camera in:

After the installation is complete, the camera should be ready to use.
