1 Answer

Installation issues I keep trying to connect the webcam to my computer and the "Found New Hardware" box opens up but it won't work b/c it gets stopped saying that I am missing one file or another. I can't figure out what's wrong with it at all.

Disconnect the camera from the computer and reinstall the software program. When the program asks you to connect the camera to the USB port, do so and finish the install. Cameras will not work using plug in.
Here is additional info to get setup to talk to family and friends.

Normal 0 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 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 and talk to you.

B. Yahoo Setup:

After downloading and installing Yahoo Messenger 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.

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

What would i do to connect my 106 ravage wed cam to the pc?


As with any hardware device, there needs to be a software driver to make the webcam work with your computer. That should have been included with the webcam (let me know if it was not, most manufacturers have device drivers available on their websites). Install the driver by putting the disk in the computer, opening the CD drive in My computer or computer (depending on your operating system. Following the prompts on the driver install. Shut down your computer, plug in your webcam in an open usb port and start up your computer. The computer will see the new hardware and look for a driver for it.

This should work to get your webcam installed. If you found this solution helpful, please remember to leave positive feedback. If you need more assistance, please let me know.

Thank You,

Brian

Go into your C drive - uninstall any webcam software
Start > Computer >> Local disc (C) >> Program files
Shutdown computer
Connect webcam
Start computer - allow 'New Hardware Detected' software to recognise webcam and download software for it before opening any other programs.

How to install


This is a hardware driver issue.

If your using a MS Windows based o/s on your computer.

Try this: open your internet browser so as to connect on line,then connect the web cam per the instructions and turn it on. This should automatically open the "Found new hardware" wizard, where you can/should chose to search the web for the appropriate software.

If that doesn't work try downloading a free program called "Driver Max" and see if that helps.

These suggestions might only get you the drivers needed, and not all the "bells and whistles" from the original CD, but at least it will work.
