Which ever Messenger or Skype you are using has to be setup in order to function. Normal 0 What Messenger are you using? I'll assume that you are using YAHOO MESSENGER and walk you through the setup. All Messengers and Skype have an Audio & Video setup in them so the camera and microphone work properly with their program.
Bring up Yahoo Messenger and on the top left click on MESSENGER.
Then click on "Messenger Preferences."
Next in Category click on "CALLIN & DEVICES."
When that comes up check and check to see that Microphone is set to your audio card.
Next insure that the speakers are set to you audio card.

Then go to "Test Audio"
In Blue "Open the call setup Assistant"
When the window opens follow the instructions. When finished your camera audio should function properly.

Also you need to go to the Video setup and do the same so it will broadcast the pictures.
Hope this helps. Bud

Change of operating system

That particular webcam has been retired from Creative Labs for some time now. I checked the manufacturer site as well as driver guide in hopes of someone creating a Windows Vista driver. Unfortunately there was nothing available.

The biggest problem with Creative Labs is they have Horrible Horrible driver support. I remember the nightmare of getting the drivers for my Audigy Sound Card replaced.

If you want to try to get it working follow these steps, in this order:

1) Plug in the cam and see if Vista will autodetect it and set it up.
2) Try using the Windows 98 drivers (probably won't work but you can try, stranger things have happened)
3) If one of those 2 steps allowed the cam to work, just find yourself some webcam software. (2 Free ones off the top of my head are Fwink and Yawcam)

If neither of those options work, you'll have to go and replace your webcam. I would recommend staying away from Creative Labs. I've got a great Logitech Cam (Mine does HD Quality) that I purchased for about $80. It's called the Logitech Quickcam 9000. It does a beautiful job and it comes with everything you need to get started. There are cheaper models available that will work equally as well with Vista. Check your local computer store.

Logitech QuickCam STX vista compatibility?

Have you updated DirectX?, I'm not sure if Vista has DX9.0 or 9.0c, but you could try and update DirectX before you install the cam software. Also if the cam is usb, did you install the software "before" connecting the cam?, some people aren't aware that usb devices have to have the software installed first, before connecting the device.
