Unable to use camcorder's built-in microphone with PC

I have just bought a MXT DV7000 Digital Camcorder, can this be used similar to a webcam using the USB connection? I have been able to get a video or live connection however I am unable to use the microphone - very confused about why?

I believe it can. I have been reading the user manual to the device and have read chapter 10. PC Cam Mode.

Currently, I'm charging the battery. And once that's done, I'll be testing it out for that purpose.

I'll give you the results once that's done. Stay tuned.

Where can I find a driver for a MXT digital camcorder DV7000?


All drivers and full software are available on the maker website in the country where you live.

My searches point to it being a Sony, but not on Sony USA site.

The problem of my camera is that no sound appear when i record a video..how can i solve this problem,thanks.


Hi music_divina ,


This could be due to the fact that you have a digital camera without an inbuilt microphone in it.

Usually camcorders do have in built microphone so that you can record sound as well as video simultaneously, whereas digital cameras are meant for high quality pictures , rather than videos.

So if you want to record good quality video along with audio , I would recommend you to get a camcorder.

If you have a webcam and you want to record audio along with video , then you can easily do it by using the microphone which is to be inserted in the mic slot just besides the speaker's slot with a microphone icon near it.

All you need to do is select the video recording source as your webcam and audio recording source as your microphone and there you go , you have the recording with audio.

Hope this helps ...:)

Nikon Coolpix P2 digital camera, can i use it as webcam?if yes please write me how can i d it, do i need any software for it.write me email on hellosajjad@gmail.com


We get this question alot. Not very many digital still cameras can actually be used as a webcam. This is mostly due to the lack of drivers for it. [url=http://esupport.sony.com/perl/tutorial-display.pl?tut_id=380&mdl=DSCS80]SONY does have a tutorial for using some of their models as a webcam[/url], but my question is, with focusing issues, why would you?

But for now, I don't think so. Better to try getting your camcorder to perform that function.

Or pick up the Creative's LiveCam Optica AF webcam.
Sensor: 2 megapixel sensor
Lens: High quality precision lens
Microphone: Built-in adaptive array microphones
Highest Still Image Resolution: 8 megapixels 3200 x 2400
Highest Video Resolution: 1600 x 1200
Focus: Auto
Interface: High-Speed USB 2.0 (bkwd compatible with USB 1.1)

$129.99

This will perform many of the functions you want in a webcam from a still camera and is designed as such.

The A520 (and I guess all Powershot cameras with RemoteShooting capability) can be used as a webcam. You only need a screen capture software, like Camtasia Recorder from the Camtasia Studio and Canon's own software, Camerawindow -> Remote shooting. You only need to start these programs, enable the Liveoutput option in the Camtasia Recorder, place the capture frame over the Remoteshooting window and start recording.

Built-in microphone does seem to work


The only way to really tell if the buit in mic. is bad is to replace the mic or plug another one in the external mic. jack. Also use the input (red and white) RCA jacks and input a signal from a stereo or TV into it and record. If still no sound then its probably Bad capacitors in the sound processor Printed Circuit board. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news but mostly all of older camcorders suffer from this breakdown fault. Good luck
