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

Computer doesn't recongnize sony camera usb


To download the pictures you need the driver for the camera ...this can be downloaded from the support site if you do not have it ..but from what you said it seam that the issue may be of other cause..
The camera need to be powered and on ..in the moment you connect it to the computer ..and also you need to confirm the pc connection from the camera in the moment you connect ti .make sure you have its driver installed .
Try to connect in a different usb port ..cause even if the driver is missing the computer should react on the usb device being plugged and ask for the driver.
If no port will react ..try the camera oin another computer ..and like I said always make sure it is powered and on ... If it makes no reaction in another computer ..than something is wrong with the camera .Another method to download the pictures..is to use the card from the camera directly into a card reader and copy the pictures from it ..
here is a link for the driver if you need it ..
http://esupport.sony.com/US/perl/model-home.pl?mdl=DSCW370G&template_id=1&region_id=1&tab=download#/downloadTab
this is teh picture browser it uses...be sure you select the operation system you run ..and also make sure you download the full program first and the upgrade after ..cause the update download may not work without the original one ..(down on the list ) ..
Good luck !

Do not have disk to reinstall drivers


The Panasonic website doesn't have drivers for this camera listed. Check the link here: http://panasonic.com.au/Support/Customer+support/Downloads+and+documentation

Most likely this camera is plug'n'play and doesn't require specific drivers.

Will not work with windows 7


Hi,

Improve the Fixya.com experience for everyone by voting!

Unfortunately, your underwater camera is a niche product and Windows 7 installs the drivers for the most popular cameras first. But all is not lost because you have a couple of sources for drivers independent of Microsoft.

Click on the following link and follow the download instruction: Download Latest Sakar Drivers

If that official site doesn't solve your problem, I have another answer for you

Click on the following link for the largest FREE driver database on the internet. Driver Download

All the best,

Ben

Webcam compatible forfujitsu life book


All of the cameras are compatible with any computer. The only problem is with its driver. The driver of the camera should be compatible with the operating system of your computer. There are sometimes that the camera manufacturer gives you a driver which is not compatible with the operating system of the computer. However, this is not really a serious problem because any manufacturer has their own website where you can download the updated driver which is compatible to the operating system.

If your camera doesn't work with your computer, then, you need to download or install the driver that came with the camera or go to the website of the camera's manufacturer.
