Normal 0 Try disconnecting the Camera from the USB port and reinstall the software program. When the program asks you to connect the camera to the USB port, do so and it should work.
Then to use it on the Web do this.
Web Camera’s have to be setup on the program they are to be used with. Just installing the camera on your computer does not set it up to broadcast on messengers or Skype.
Each program has Options that have to be setup in order for the Audio and Video to function properly.
A. Skype Setup:
After downloading and installing Skype (http://www.skype.com/intl/en-gb/download/skype/windows/beta/downloading/ ) set it up as follows:

  1. Go to Tools, then Options, and click on Audio Settings and set the Microphone and Speakers to the computer Audio Card.
  2. Then click on the Video Settings.
  3. The camera if Installed Properly will come up and show a video picture.
  4. Then, on the bottom of the page click on Save.
The camera and audio should function properly. Your friends and Family will now be able to see and her to you.
B. Yahoo Setup:
After downloading and installing Yahoo Messenger (http://www.soft32.com/download_30.html ) set it up as follows:
  1. Go to Messenger at the top left and click on it.
  2. Next go down to Preferences and click on it.
  3. Next Calling and Devices on the right and set the Microphone and Speakers to the computer Audio Card.
  4. Next go to the Test Audio section and (in blue writing) click on “Open the call setup assistant” and follow the instructions on the left window.
C. Windows Live Messenger:
  1. After you start Windows Live Messenger, expand the view by clicking on the square on top left next to the red X.
  2. Then on the Windows Live messenger window on the right side, click on “ “Show Menus.” And then click on “Show the Menu Bar”.
  3. Next go to the Menu Bar on right side, click on “ “Action.”
  4. Go to “TOOLS” and click “Audio and Video Setting” and follow the instructions.
NOTE: You audio and video should work. Enjoy.
When done both the Audio and Video will function properly so you can chat and see family or friends you are connected to.
Hope this helps. Bud

Web Camera Installation Problem, Zebronics Viper New Web Cam


In addition to the webcam software you may have to download some support software separately. I have a Logitech and it needs Microsoft DirectX 10 to perform correctly.
As its a new webcam I suggest you contact Zebtronics from their support website and ask them what the requirements are - you may need SP3 for example

Have lifecam VX-500 in device manager it states that it is working properly. But when the icon on the desktop is opened a messages says there no camera connected to this computer. I can't find any answers...


I had this problem myself and it was a conflict.It seemed that only my webcam software was installed but I found another program in 'All Programs' ( only had numbers - no title) After deleting this it was fine

Have you downloaded the support software for your webcam ? check out the readme links for details - for example I have a logitech and need Directx to run it

Try this link and download version 11.5 onto your hard drive, by installing from hard drive the invalid drive should be bypassed.

It will not install or download to install


hello, try to install the software before connecting the hardware. This looks to be an USB camera. These types of cameras usually require that the software be installed prior to the hardware being installed.
