Best advice is to do a Google search on the brand name to see if you can download a manual. Usually you can find a better driver and some auxiliary software you might find useful.

If you can't figure out the brand name, see if there is any kind of number code on the bottom and Google search the number (include any letters and dashes as well).

Many times, when you plug it in the new device will be "seen" by Windows and automatically installed. If there was software with the cam, you may need to run an installation program from the disk or CD.

Windows may not be able to find a driver for the webcam if you do not have a CD with it. A driver is a piece of software that lets the device and Windows talk to each other. You may need to go to the manufacturers website and download the driver, or perhaps go to a site like driverguide.com to get it.

I did not receive a cd for myc10 webcam


Many new laptops, and also some older ones running more recent WINDOWS operating systems have what is called "plug and play". You just plug the device into the appropriate location on the laptop, and the system finds the correct drivers and installs them on its own. If your laptop or operating system does NOT have that feature, go to GOOGLE and type in "divers for Logitech QuickCam Messenger Web Cam Model ac110m " or better, go directly to LOGITECH's WEBSITE, probably WWW.LOGITECH.COM, and look for the drivers for your particular device.

How to install CDR king webcam video capture hardware


When you bought your webcam, a software or driver CD should have been included in the package. Install the software first by inserting the cd/mini cd in your cd drive then follow the onscreen instructions. Read them carefully before clicking on anything. after inserting the cd, plug the webcam in a USB port.

Most webcams CDR King sell are plug and play compliant devices. Most of the time, you do not need to install anything. Just plug the device in and start using it.

Plug and play webcam wont work on yahoo...


Once your webcam is working on your computer,you can configure it to Yahoo Messenger.
Its good practice to disconnect and re-connect your webcam before you start - if you have been using it elsewhere the Yahoo software may have difficulty in locating it. Mine, I just unplug it from the USB and plug it back in, if yours is integral with the computer you will have to re-start the computer, unless the software has a feature for this.
Of all the chat programs, Yahoo is the most painful software to set up but if you follow these instructions you should be ok.

INTERNET CONNECTION
Webcam connected
Open messenger - on top toolbar. Left click ( > ) Messenger > Preferences > Connection - Select 'no proxies' or 'connect direct to the internet' depending on the version of messenger you have
make sure your internet connection and country are correct in the lower two boxes > Apply > OK

TESTING
> Messenger > My webcam - the warning panel will launch, click 'OK' and your webcam will start. You should be rewarded at this stage with your happy smiling face.

DEFAULT
With webcam still running > Messenger > Preferences > Webcam > Camera Source - set your webcam as default using dropbox. > Camera Settings - adjust settings to suit. > Apply > OK
Take a note of any additional software, if you have multiple choice for Camera Source, you may wish to uninstall any redundant webcam software later to prevent conflicts

PERMISSION OPTIONS
> Messenger > Preferences > Webcam - make your selections ( who you will allow to view you) > Apply > OK

IN USE
When you are both on line and wish to show your webcam > Actions > 'Invite to view my webcam'. This will launch an invitation on your contacts screen when they 'Accept' your webcam broadcast will start- There can be considerable time lag ( 1 minute) before they see you, so dont be too impatient ( You can check the status on the bottom left of your webcam panel. You can 'drag and drop' the frame to a convenient location by grabbing the top border.
There is a shortcut ( webcam icon ) down by your pic as well
Your contacts needs to configure their connection the same as above or they may get a "webcam not connected" message

If you complete the above and still have problems - check to see if your cam is compatible with Yahoo

YAHOO SPECIFICATION

GE MiniCam Pro


I realized that my daughter didn't follow the directions exactly. So I un-installed the drivers and then just like the directions said. I loaded the drivers without the camera plugged into the computer. After the drivers were loaded I rebooted my computer and then plugged the camera in and it worked. Hmmm funny thing that it works when you follow the directions from the beginning.
