    I can't figure out my webcam either. Also, I installed drivers for wireless network, but can't seem to pick up a signal. All help is appreciated!

Hi,
Your webcam needs a program to use. You could try Videocaster and click Capture Video from the menu. You can add music, narration, effects, edit it, save it as a movie, or even stream it to the web..
You can also use it in Skype and Messenger, but you have to go to the video settings and choose it as the default webcam.

Hope this helps

If I could get on with you and access you computer, I could show you how to use it with Windows Live Messenger or Skype. Basically its not complicated but knowing what to look for makes it simple. Bud

I tryed hooking up my easy cam on my new laptop its a window vista and it keeps saying d-link cif webcam and thats not the cam how do i fix this cause i cant get on cam nor take pics


Most Web Cams will NOT work with VISTA !!!
Microsoft forgot to add driver's in Vista for most hardware. r you need to buy a cam specifically for Vista and if you do it will work on other operating systems as well...

Quite a few of these problems are addressed in Windows 7...

Good Luck!

My web cam won't turn on


Which ever Messenger or Skype you are using has to be setup in order to function. 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

My quick cam do not work with Windows Vista Primium


Lots of web cameras dont work with vista. The best option is to go to the webcam manufacture's website and see if there is a Vista driver available.
