Logitech webcam says in use by another application.


Sometimes webcam software can remain hooked up to a program even if we have exited that program correctly
I just re-boot my webcam software by unplugging it for a couple of seconds
( easy on a laptop but you can disable / enable the webcam from the imaging folder in your Device Manager )

You can try launching the Logitech toolbar and click on the Quick Capture menu ( 2 film frames ) If your webcam is in use elsewhere it will tell you what program otherwise your webcam should broadcast

Fianally the worst scenario is you have a software conflict with another program on your computer

Automatic log on for webcam


Sounds like a conflict somewhere, try uninstalling it and reinstalling the software but disconnect the camera first. Then reboot the system and reinstall the software. See if that helps

Download revo and scan the programs to see if you have any redundant webcam software loaded on your computer creating conflicts - delete if you find any.

http://www.revouninstaller.com/revo_uninstaller_free_download.html

Go into device manager - expand imaging file - right click on your webcam and update driver using internet option.

Prior to using your webcam unplug it and plug it back in - it may have been used somewhere else and the software is unable to find it.

I can not capture image on my webcam


hi there...do you already install the software from cd driver of your webcam...if not.first you must install driver this webcam cd to your PC or notebook.it's easy just following instruction that shown at monitor. after you install the driver computer need to restart.usually the sofware is include with cd driver and will put shortcut at the desktop.but if not showing you may click "start menu" looking the program with label "Creative Suite".
If you lost the cd driver of webcam you can download the driver for free at Creative website and looking the support/dowlnload find the type of your webcam (usually there is sticker or tag under your webcam) download it and install to your PC or notebook..good luck

I have installed your trust webcam and have followed instructions. i went on to amcap to take photo and use webcam but it says i dont have video capture hardwarewhat does this mean?


Normal 0 Probably has corrupt driver.
Try disconnecting the Camera from the USB port and reinstall the CD or Downloaded software program. When the program asks you to connect the camera to the USB port, do so and it should work.
Hope this helps. Bud

Freeze after 1minute


your webcam might be having any irq conflict with any other device.

Right click on my computer (in winxp) then properties, click on hardware tab and see the list of hardware installed on your pc. right click on the camera software you've installed. in properties you'll notice a resource tab...see if you have any conflict message here.

If yes try reinstalling the cam.

hope it will work.

Device not Available?


I would suggest, that the camera driver may have duplicate instances for some reason, so remove cam, uninstall the software and start again to see if this cures the problem. Also try using a different usb port.
