Is your camera a Microsoft Life Cam VX-6000? That's what is listed above. If it is, its one of the best you can get.
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.
Hope this helps. Bud

Gateway netbook LT2802u. I want to use the built in camera - webcam - manually. It works on Skype - I can take pictures to post for my profile and it works as a webcam. Also I can find the webcam in device...

Your web cam works with software. Any video chat programs or web programs will allow your camera to function. Like Yahoo, MSN, Google, Skype, ooVoo... So you would need a installed a computer program that would give you more control. Check with the manufacturer to see what they have that would give you this kind of control. if it's a logitech CAM. If the software isn't compatible with the version of windows.. Then the CAM would only work with web based programs (Skype, ooVoo, yahoo......)

I am having trouble with my skype video. When I make a call I can see and hear them, but my party cannot see me. I have a logetic webcam250. Please help!!!!!

You should install the drivers before you try to operate the webcam, unless the instructions state otherwise. If the drivers are not installed, unplug the webcam and install the drivers, and plug the web cam back in when promoted. If you have the drivers installed already, or can confirm the web cam works, open up skype and navigate to tools then options. Once in the options menu go to the video settings tab. In the "select webcam" drop down menu select the webcam of your choice.

It's also possible you are using an older version of skype that my not support new protocols for video, OR it's possible you are using a new version of skype which doesn't automatically start video. If you are using an older version of skype (current version is 5.1) update to the later version. If you have the latest version, you may need to manually start video chat. When you start a call, look towards the lower area of the screen for a button that says "My video" and click on it. This should start the video chat.

Hope this was of some use!

I have a logitech webcam but its older and i have a newer computer so everytime i hook it to the usb port the computer tells me it cant detect it so what can i do, upgrade something?

The driver for the camera need to be installed first.Look for the driver in the Logitech web site support and you can download a newer version of the driver which will be better for the web cam.Newer web cam models nowadays are cheaper and has better video and higher megapixels which work even in low light situations,why don't you get one.I got a gigaware which has a mic and a motion detector at a low price.

If the webcam has a ring on the front of the lens trying turning it while on the free webcam test site. You can see the focus change as you adjust it. Also try the free tips in the article How to Improve Your Webcam Video Quality. Lighting makes a huge difference.

How do I turn my canon hf20 camcorder into a webcam?

I thought the problem was solved after talking to the rep. He told me all I needed was a capture card to make my Canon Vixia hf20. the capture card would plug into my fire wire of my Mac, He said I could go to the apple store and buy one. I called the Apple store and they had no Idea what I was talking about, I called several other stores and they also did not have a clue what I was talking about.

If I can get the correct answer that would be great, I spent $20.00 and am stuck in the same situation.

Hi there i bourght an amcap camera i installed it and it says on the screen cannot run preview grapH:P what do i do plz help

This issue is usually caused by the graphic interface is not supported. You need to verify that you have the newer version of DirectX. To check the version number click START, select RUN and type DXDIAG to bring up the DirectX Diagnostic.

If everything appears to be ok, make sure the web cam driver is properly installed along with the video driver (video card). Please update the DirectX version of Windows if you got an older version.

If it doesn't work. try:

Check Properties of "My Computer> Hardware> Device Manager" you have any device with an exclamation mark or cross in yellow or red, respectively.

If you do not have anything like that, check if your webcam device appears in the listing.

If that doesn't work or there is no error on properties, another driver may be causing problems. you may need to go a little technical about this issue following the steps below:

1) install the drivers by disabling all the non Microsoft services on your system.
2) uninstall the web cam drivers.
3) unplug the web cam and need to reboot your system.
4) Then you need to go on your Start menu, then select Run and then type: msconfig and press the enter key.
5) on the General tab,you need to click on Selective Startup.
6) Under Selective Startup, you need to click on clear the Load Startup Items check box.
7) Then again click on the Services tab, then you need to select the Hide All Microsoft Services check box, and then you need to click on Disable All.
8) Then click on OK. Then it ask you whether you would like to reboot your system,just click on Restart.
9) Install the driver.
10) Plugin the webcam.
11) Restart the computer.

After doing all this still doesn't work, the issue may be caused by some kind of incompatible hardware.

Good luck!

Can't record videos

The problem may be be USB interface in your PC. The newer cameras require the 2.0 spec to work properly, and the older 1.1 versions have problems.
