Question about Creative Labs Creative Webcam

1 Answer

I have tried several times to install my new web cam. the green light is on. on the control panel at scanners & cameras, it appears and when you test there it says it works. but when you open Web Cam Center, it says "no supported creative cam detected, pleas plug in" Also under Windows Live Messenger/ tools/ Audio & Video set-up it doesn't detect the camera. I have XP and have used a Logitech previously.

Acer crystal eye webcam doesnt work.


ok this problem is caused by the wrong drive installed for the Crystal Eye Web cam.

even thoguh the camera shows that it is installed, the application looks for a specific one for the model you have. Unfortunatly Acer used 3 models of the camera without telling you which you have and calls all of them "crystal eye web cam"

go to acer.com select their support section and download all driver and applications available for the camera. you will need to try then 1 at a time til you get the one that works for your system

Other person can not see me properly they said they can only see a shadow


sounds like you need to adjust the brightness of the image given by the web cam. Do this in the web cams control folder or software or through Control Panel, Scanners and Cameras applet. This can also happen if you have a strong light source behind you which causes the web cam to react and close its aperture and shutter speeds, resulting in a dark image. Even a window can cause this.

My web cam is not working


Try installing your software again with the camera unplugged then attach the cam and see if it is recognized. If it will not, go into Add/Remove software in control panel and remove the cams program and try reinstalling. If you plug the cam in and get no response saying you have a new device your cam may need to be replaced.

Acer aspire one webcam. HELP?


The Acer Crystal Eye Web Cam automatically integrates itself into whichever program you are using be it an aftermarket video control or Windows Live Messenger or Yahoo Messenger. The only way I know how to bring it up MANUALLY is to go to the Control Panel or your Start menu (in Accessories) and bring up the Scanner & Camera Wizard. When you bring that up, click "Next" and it will start the camera and you will see yourself. When using a program like Windows Live Messenger (version 8.5 is the BEST!) you will have to tell the program what source to use for the camera, Your only choice is the Crystal Eye Web Cam unless you have installed a different cam that sits atop your screen, in which case, tell the program to use that one. You might try downloading a program called YAWCAM from the web and installing that. Just do a Google search for it. Give that a try because the Acer web cam doesn't do video with the limited controls in Scanner & Camera Wizard.

I HAVE JUST INSTALLED CREATIVE VIDEO IM PRO WEBCAM ONTO MY COMPUTER. THE WEBCAM REGISTERS AS GEING INSTALLED. THE GREEN LED LIGHT IS LIT. HOWEVER, WHEN I TRY TO USE NO IMAGE APPEARS VIA THE CREATIVE CAM...


Does it display as a black image, a white image or static? You most likely have 1 of 2 problems. Either your camera (the actual lens if you want to be technical) may have been damaged or you are having an issue with drivers. Go Start>Control Panel>Administrative Tools>Device Manager. Under Imaging devices your web cam should be listed. Double click the description and post back with what the information from that window.
