Question about Microsoft LifeCam NX-6000 Webcam
I have a Sony laptop with a built in cam. The camera works with other programs but when I try to use it in Windows Live messenger the message "We couldn't start your camera device. Please check that your camera is not currently in use by another program, and then try again" comes up. My camera is NOT being used by any other program when I try to web cam over msn... How do I fix this?? The problem occured with the older windows live, and so I downloaded the newest version of windows live hoping it would solve itself but it has not.
You need to configure your cam for msn
After you start Windows Live Messenger,
expand the view by clicking on the square
on top left next to the red X.
Then on the Windows Live messenger window on the
right side, click on “ “Show Menus.” And then click
on “Show the Menu Bar”.
Next go to the Menu Bar on right side, click on Action.
Go to “TOOLS” and click “Audio and Video Setting
and follow the instructions.
