    Seems several people have problems with this product. I get a black screen. I can see myself and take still pictures but can not connect with others who have webcams nor can they connect with my webcam.

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

My logitech webcam works with logitech software and even with "fre webcam test tool" but not with skype. Under tools, options, video settings it says Skype could'nt find a webcam.


1) If you do not intend to use the Logitech chat feature I would recommend you uninstall the current logitech software and re-install it - opting out of the Logitech chat feature when the option appears
2) Make sure you have downloaded the DirectX support software.

Check out the support page for your webcam by browsing the gallery and clicking on the picture of your model.

I can't get special features on my webcam


Ok, the for notebooks part is actually what I needed. Try clicking the link below(if it doesn't work I'll give you a longer way to get there), then select your version of windows and it will offer you the drivers and software you need.

Let me know how you make out,

MY WEBCAM DOES NOT WORK IN MSN WHEN I TRY TO USED IT SAYS THAT IT COULD NOT START MY CAMERA DEVICE WHAT SHOULD I DO?


There a couple of things you can check - Firstly can you access your webcam via a shortcut and access any of the normal features, the easiest thing to check is will it take a still picture?

If that doesn't work - Go to control panel from your start bar and check device manager, can you find your webcam in the list of devices and does it appear in cameras and webcams?

If you can access the webcam features the problem is not related to your web cam but the software.

Tell me how you get on with the above, and there are a few more simple things to check or change to make sure you can get your webcam in MSN.
