Normal 0 Did you install the software with the camera connected to the computer? Disconnect the camera from the USB port and reinstall the software. When the program asks you to connect the camera, do so, and it should work. Hope this is of some help. Bud

Below is info for setting up Audio & Video to chat on line after you install , either Skype or a messenger program.


Web Camera’s have to be setup on the program they are to be used with. Just installing the camera on your computer does not set it up to broadcast on messengers or Skype.

Each program has Options that have to be setup in order for the Audio and Video to function properly.

A. Skype Setup:

After downloading and installing Skype set it up as follows:

  1. Go to TOOLS, then OPTIONS, and click on Audio Settings and set the Microphone and Speakers to the computer Audio Card.
  2. Then click on the Video Settings.
  3. The camera if installed properly will come up and show a picture.
  4. Then on the bottom of the page click on Save.

The camera and audio should function properly. Your friends and Family will now see and talk to you.

B. Yahoo Setup:

After downloading and installing Yahoo Messenger set it up as follows:

  1. Go to Messenger at the top left and click on it.
  2. Next go down to Preferences and click on it.
  3. Next Calling and Devices on the right and set the Microphone and Speakers to the computer Audio Card.
  4. Next go to the Test Audio section and (in blue writing) click on “Open the call setup assistant” and follow the instructions on the left window.

C. Windows Live Messenger:

  1. After you start Windows Live Messenger, expand the view by clicking on the square on top left next to the red X.
  2. Then on the Windows Live messenger window on the right side, click on “ “Show Menus.” And then click on “Show the Menu Bar”.
  3. Next go to the Menu Bar on right side, click on “ “Action.”
  4. Go to “TOOLS” and click “Audio and Video Setting” and follow the instructions.
NOTE: You audio and video shoud work. Enjoy.

When done both the Audio and Video will function properly so you can chat and see family or friends you are connected to.
Hope this helps. Bud

QuickCam Messenger V-UAS14 Win7 x64


There is a work-around if you have Win7 Pro or Ultimate (or upgrade to one of those versions). Download and install Virtual PC and the XP mode software from Microsoft. Use the work-arounds if your hardware doesn't support virtualization. (You'll find the details at the Microsoft site. My computer that currently runs XP mode handles virtualization if enabled in the BIOS so I'm not completely informed on the steps.)

Then launch the XP mode software and install the camera to that "OS" as well as the QuickCam 8.4.8 software from Logitech. This may not be practical if you want to do video-conferencing with the QuickCam Messenger. It will depend a bit on how much memory you dedicate to XP mode since XP mode is 32-bit. (It will only see 3 GB.)

Since Logitech didn't include this model of the QuickCam Messenger in their updates to the QuickCam program for later OS versions, you are stuck this XP limit. You can also use a second computer, a dual-boot computer or another virtual computer program with XP installed. However, these require a licensed version of XP. Other virtualization programs include VMWare and Parallels.

I wish that I had better news for you. (It's a pain to have good hardware and no drivers. Unfortunately, I don't know any programmers who would be willing to write the drivers and software for the web camera from scratch.)

I have a Logitech QuickCam Pro 9000. I also have an install CD for Windows XP. My old old computer died. My new computer has Windows 7. I can not download the software to activate my Pro 9000. What do I...


Hello!
First uninstall any WebCam software that you have. To do this unplug your camera from the USB, go to Control Panel > Programs and Feature. Next, download the full installer (select from the drop down list) for your camera and install it. The setup will guide you trough the process and eventually will ask you to plug the camera back in.
Good luck

Uninstall Windows Vista. Do a fresh install of Windows XP Professional Sp2. Download XP drivers and install camera. Many software programs have trouble initializing in Windows Vista. Good luck!
