Question about Microsoft LifeCam VX-6000 (68C-00001) Webcam

1 Answer

Need a Microsoft LifeCam VX-6000 USB Webcam driver

I had to reboot my computer and so it wiped all the software programs I had downloaded onto it. This included my Lifecam 1.1 software. I've still got the disc but it's scratched (because i just threw it on a shelf forgetting about needing it again) so a few of the files won't load onto my computer now when trying to reinstall the disc. I know it's my own fault for not looking after the disc but can someone tell me where i can download the software or find a driver for it please?

    I've got a Dell Dimension 8400 with Windows XP - using Windows Live Messenger - I installed the camera about a year ago and everything worked great, used it once, have not touched it since then. Went to use it the other day and the mic worked but no video. So, I uninstalled and reinstalled and tried a dozen things to make it work, all with the same result. Bottom line is, my system is not detecting the camera at least as far as video goes and is telling me that there is no driver for the hardware - it's on the installation disc, but the system is not seeing or recognizing it. hod do we get the DRIVER for this webcam?(Microsoft LifeCam VX-6000 Webcam)

Microsoft hardware support allows you to pick the hardware, operating system, and language of driver installation. Simple as pie

Since you're running server, I assume you know what this means...

msiexec /qn /i LifCam10.msi TARGETDIR="C:\Program Files\Microsoft LifeCam" SKIPOSCHECK=1 LIFECAMGUID="C1751519BDE8403dB8A46BF319EFD5ED" VERSION="1.10.148.0" REBOOT=ReallySuppress INSTALL64BIT=0

This will install it on Windows 2003.

FYI, I did copy it to my machine and updated some of the MSI with Orca for component checking as well.

SOURCE: does skype work with Microsoft LifeCam VX-6000?

Before you can use your webcam in any chat program you have to configure it to that program

Test your webcam here to make sure it broadcasts ok - Hit 'Allow' in the top window and check your cam in the left hand panel.

http://www.testmycam.com/

working OK ?

CONFIGURE TO SKYPE
Connect webcam
Its good practice to disconnect and re-connect your webcam before you start (To reboot the webcam software) - if you have been using it elsewhere the SKYPE software may have difficulty in locating it, even if you exited the previous program correctly.
The reason being, the webcam software can remain hooked-up to a program and needs to be rebooted.
Mine, I just unplug it from the USB and plug it back in to reboot the software.
If yours is integral with the computer you will have to re-start the computer, use a keyboard shortcut or disable / enable the webcam from the Device Manager.

Start Skype.
On the 'Tools' menu, click 'Options'.
In the navigation pane of the Skype 'Options' window, click 'Audio Settings'
Run down the list setting your defaults
Select your webcam as the default microphone.
Make a free test call
Click 'Save'
In the navigation pane of the Skype Options window, click Video Settings.
This will launch your webcam
Adjust quality of picture in 'Settings'
Check the correct webcam is shown as default
Click Save
Test your webcam by making a Skype test call.

Microsoft lifecam 1000


You can download the driver here :- http://www.opendrivers.com/driver/236296/microsoft-lifecam-nx-6000-vx-1000-vx-3000-vx-6000-driver-1.21-windows-xp-free-download.html
the camera has a built in microphone,so after a proper installation you should have the video and mic funtioning.
but in your case, the cam doesn't work, so you have to try first uninstall the driver >> unplug the camera USB port >> then make a restart >> plud the camera back into the usb >> and install the drivers again.

Uninstall the Microsoft LifeCam and disconnect your camera.
Go to this site: http://www.logitech.com/index.cfm/435/241&cl=us,en

Download the software for the QuickCam Ultra Vision 5. Save to your hard disk and then run the program.
Reinstall the LifeCam software and then plug in the camera. LifeCam will use the Logitech Drivers and your camera should work fine.
