Re: ICONECT MY WEB CAM AND IT DOESNT WORK
disconnecting the Camera from the USB port and reinstall the CD software
program. When the program asks you to connect the camera to the
USB port, do so and it should work.
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/

then Options, and click on Audio Settings and set the Microphone
and Speakers to the computer Audio Card.
click on the Video Settings.
camera if Installed Properly will come up and show a video picture.
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:

go down to Preferences and click on it.
Calling and Devices on the right and set the Microphone and Speakers to

Hi! don't worry with the driver..you can choose it from here.. just click the file...and click " save " to
start downloading....using winrar (and or winzip), extract the file and
install driver for your web cam
Attach all power cords (e.g. laptopand/or web cam).
Plug your USB cam directly into your computer (do not use any external USB hubs). Turn your cam on
As long as your web cam and computer hardware are working, Windows should detect it!
2. Open Device Manager
For Vista => Click Control Panel. If you have Control Panel Classic View, click Device Manager => Click Control Panel. If you have Control Panel Home View, click System and Maintenance->Device Manager
For XP => Click Control Panel->System, then Hardware tab, then Device Manager button
3. Find your web cam in Device Manager
Understanding Device Names => Windows provides user-friendly device names to accomodate us humans. As far as Windows is concerned, the device name is simply a comment! => It's those cryptic Device Identification strings that really identify a device => Device Manager displays whatever device name it happens to find in the device driver ...==> If Windows finds NO device driver, your web cam may be named “Unknown” or "Other" device ...==> If Windows finds the WRONG device driver you may see your web cam with the WRONG device name
How to find your web cam => While your web cam is connected, look through all of Device Manager for devices with a yellow icon (probably a yellow question mark) => Look if a device category Other Devices. Also, be certain to expand the USB category to check all devices listed under it => Your web cam will appear as a device with a yellow icon (probably a question mark) => Click on thumbnail to see the full sized image How to verify the device you found is your web cam => Your web cam device will only appear in Device Manager when the web cam is powered on and connected => Disconnect your web cam. Verify the device you had found is no longer displayed in Device Manager
4. Find your web cam's Hardware Ids
In Device Manager, select your web cam device, rt click Properties. Click Details tab
Select Hardware Ids from the pull-down. You'll see a list of one or more Hardware Id strings
Till you install its drivers from the CD that came with it, it will not show up anywhere. Install the CD withoutconnecting the cam. After installation of drivers only will the ca be recognised by both Windows and Skype.
I had the same problem too and tried all kinda solution I cud find on the net for ages...
The solution is simple...but windows dont give the exact problem description.
Infact...in Device manager, u miss a category called "Imaging device".To get that section back and put ur cam to work download the file "sti_ci.dll" from here.
Extract it, and copy the file to "C:\Windows\System32\" folder and connect back ur cam.Yo get get windows saying device is installed and ready to use.
That worked for me.
If it worked for u, please post it on other forms to help people who r still trying to look for a solution.
