Normal 0 After you install Skype and have it operational with your ID. Go to "TOOLS", click on "OPTIONS," Then go to "Audio Settings" and click on it. Make sure both the Microphone and Speaker's are correctly chosen. Then "make a free test call." Wait till the voice tells you to record. Then when finished talking wait for the test persons voice to insure your audio transmission is working. Then go back to options and test your video settings. Click on Video Settings and proceed to set up you video camera. Also, you can visit this site for additional information to setup video.

My Pro 9000 installed and tested properly. When I try to use the Web Cam, my computer freezes. I am using XP Prof.


It may be the hosting server thats causeing the problem. Try useing a different one and see if it is any better. Yahoo, windows live messenger, AOL, skype...ichat...etc.
Good luck...i hope this helps.

I have a Mac powerbook G4, and am trying to use skype with a creative notebook web cam. Skype does not recognise any camera in my skype video preferences. Any ideas?


Have you been able to work with your creative notebook web cam in any other function on your Mac
Powerbook G4? Probably not. PC cameras are not usually interchangeable with Mac Cameras for
what should be obvious reasons of platform, chipset, OS and IO diversity.

Here's your solution:
Enjoy image-perfect detail and clarity. Carl Zeiss® optics and autofocus keep images razor-sharp, even in extreme close-ups.

Lose webcam connection in Skype when using a headset


Have you checked the recording settings in Windows and in Skype? Try changing the default recording device to specifically indicate the device that has your headset plugged. I think the webcam also has a mic and that should not be selected.

Other thing to check is if there is some kind of resource conflict between your USB controller and audio card (use Device Manager).

Not getting audio


Logitech states its 9000 hardware & software is Windows only
Doesnt mean it definitely is, but there may be bugs. try a separate microphone.

Mac not identifying camera


Logitech does not make a Mac OSX Driver :(

There are couple ways to get it working.

Try Skype, people have reported that this camera works with skype.

Try one of these. (They are not free so I would try Skype first)

Communication Errors between Mac & Windows


I'm assuming when you say they login with AOL, that you mean they use AOL Instant Messenger, since iChat is compatible with that. If that is the case, it should work. As long as the chat clienta are compatible, there should be no issue with using a Mac and a PC. What would be helpful is the exact text of the message. Can you post that?
