LifeCam VX-3000 Audio Problems

My son sent me a LiveCam VX-3000 as a Christmas present so we could see and talk to each other (and the grandkids). The setup went fast and easy however, we have trouble communicating because of the poor audio quality. Is there anything that can be done to improve the quality and/or is it possible to use an auxiliary mic with this camera?

    Thanks for your help. However, I am using Windows Live Messenger and have been unable to find a way to select the audio card. Anyother info would be appreciated.

Audio Setup needs checking. Here is info that might help.

Normal 0 Web Camera’s have to be setup on the program they areto be used with. Just installing thecamera 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 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 setit 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 soyou can chat and see family or friends you are connected to.
Hope this helps. Bud

Computer will not let me remove the lifecam VX-3000


Go to Google and type in Logitech Vid download, use it with your life cam (I do ) first you have to add your contacts and they have to download the software (free) and add you, then you'll be able to connect, plus it's HD quality and great sound. You might also try bringing up the task master to end the process and see if you can reinstall. Ctrl + Alt + Dlt should bring it up.
