Your version of windows and the driver that you install has to match each other. The CD may not contain the corrct driver. Look at your EMPREX support website below and download and install the driver that matches you windows or other version. If a driver is not available for you version then your camera wil not work with you computers OS.

I had the same problem - adjust the camera lense bevel ring (I know it looks like it does not move, but it does).

My Computer will not communicate with my camera The camera is listed in the hard drive


You didn't say why you want the camera and computer to communicate, so I'm assuming it's so you can download photos from the camera to the computer. You also didn't specify the make and model of your camera, so I'm assuming it uses a memory card of some type.
Try NOT connecting your camera to your computer.
The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.
Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo cataloging program such as Picasa ( http://picasa.google.com ).

Camera works on Windows XP but i have Vista


You would need to download and install the Windows Vista driver from the webcam manufacturers website. You should be able to find it by clicking on the support link and looking up your specific model #. Hope this helps.

Webcam = Not working


When you installed the drivers, did you do so after loggin in as ADMINISTRATOR?? This is vital otherwise it will not work. Also a quote from the manual goes like this quote -"Exit the “Found New Hardware Wizard” by hitting the cancel button. Unplug the VGA webcam
from the USB. Insert the software CD into the drive tray. Follow the software installation
instructions. Once all software is installed (direct X, HP Web Cam drivers, ArcSoft
VideoImpression, ArcSoft Photo Impression), close the HP Webcam window and RESTART the
PC. After restarting the PC, plug in the VGA Webcam and run ArcSoft Video Impression to
capture a new video." unquote.
Hope this helps..................sodeep

The webcam button on my yahoo messenger is gray. It won't let you select it. My husband is in Afghanistan. We used it the other day and he was able to see me. Now it won't work. Help please!


If it is a built-in webcam like in the edge bezel of a laptop monitor, look for a disc from the manufacturer to try and reinstall the driver for the camera.

If it is a camera that you plug into a USB slot, try plugging it into a different USB slot while the computer is on. If Windows doesn't recognize it and install the driver after you've plugged it into a new port, you may need to get the CD that came with it and use that to install (follow directions, which usually include not plugging the camera in until after you ran the CD, or during the middle of it) or if you don't have the CD, you can probably visit that manufacturer's website and download the driver or installation program.

Emprex cd burner/model # USB 5232Ul/install cd


Most times, you can plug the drive into a USB port and Windows will detect the device and assign a drive letter to it. If it does, the CD burning software should then be able to see it. Try googling the burner company name and model number if Windows continues seeing the drive as an unknown device.

I need to install an I.T. works webcam model number pc380 on to windows vista, where can i get the programe/drivers from?


It doesn't seem as if the company that made your webcam has drivers for Windows Vista. You should consider getting a new webcam.
