More info? Like what operating system? Have you ever used the web cam? Each Operating system is a little different so some names or details might be slightly different. Should be easy to find either way.

1.Assuming you are running Vista or newer my first action would be to hit the Start button and in the search box located there type camera. It should pop up with a few options for camera. One of which being how to turn it on.
2.If it is not there go to your control panel.
3.Once in the Control Panel select the option "Devices and Printers"
4.In the "Devices and Printers" menu you can access any of the hardware devices located on your computer. In the list of options you will see "scanners and Camera's". Click on that.
5.If you do not see your webcam there than it is not installed on your computer. However if it is there you should be able to double click on it and turn it on or off.NOTE:This will not allow you to just take a picture or shoot a video from there! If you want to take photo's with your machine you need to use it through some kind of software. Here is a link to a wide variety of FREE Web Cam software

While it is plugged in to the computer you will need to turn the camera on and it should then load the drivers needed and ask if you want to import images.

Im trying to install the program onto my computer with no luck.

This is a common driver issue that exists with many electronics. The best way to solve this for your particular camera (and I apologize for not knowing about your particular camera) is to go online and search for something like "{put your model number here] is not recognized" in your favorite search engine. You will get plenty of help. . As an aside, try opening "My Computer" and seeing if the camera mounts as a drive. If it does not show up, a little known fix for usb devices not being recognized is to shut down (properly) the computer, unplug it for a couple minutes, plug it in, and restarting it. This resets the motherboard. Good luck.

Hello ive recently purchased a Kodak c913 camera and im already having problems. I am unable to get the camera to even turn on. Ive tried replacing the batteries and still nothing, it doesnt turn on whilst...

Your fix could be as simple as cleaning the camera's battery contacts, or it could be something more serious and expensive. First try removing the batteries and cleaning the camera contacts with a small metal brush, steel wool, or fine sandpaper. If that doesn't fix the problem, check the Kodak Help Center by clicking on the link below. It uses a simple Q&A format to diagnose problems and propose solutions.

Did you install the camera software onto your computer? If you don't have the disc, I suggest that you go to the manufactureer's web site and download it. Without the software your computer probably doesn't recognize your camera.
