Click start control panel view devices and printers you should see your webcam from there if you are have trouble with your webcam Click start control panel administrative tools computer management device manager scroll down image devices you could see a yellow question mark? right click to reinstall drivers or update driver xp Click start right click on computer select properties device manager scroll to image devices expand right click to update driver in W7 on the home page you should see a search tab just type in what you are looking for IE: webcam name webcam driver you might have to try a few times to get it right software if you dont have the driver you will need to download one here rather doing a driver hunt which can take hours Windows XP/Vista/7/8 It might take some time being a freeware driver solution note: it will find all of your outdated drivers this is a free driver solutions This will automatically search for and find the correct driver you will have to update every driver individually once you update you might be asked whether you want to restart or make a system restore point click no to both of these then continue updating each driver free then restart once all of the drivers have been updated Some webcams and programs require additional software, although that should be installed with the webcam if things are right. But is does not harm to check if your Java, Flash and Quicktime software are installed and up to date. But certainly check your DirectX software, since all video applications, including webcams, use DirectX for video processing. Try downloading the latest DirectX version and install it (Windows XP: DirectX 9.0c - Windows Vista: DirectX 10). If you still have no webcam installed Run the "Add a device"application, accessed by clicking on the "Start" button, opening the "Control Panel," and then double-clicking on "Add a device." The "Add a device" window will open and Windows will search for devices connected to your system but not installed. Click on the webcam name that shows in the search box and then click "Next." Choose whether you want Windows to search for the webcam device driver using Windows Update over the Internet, or if you'd prefer to have the device manager search for the driver using a disc supplied by your laptop manufacturer. Most drivers can be found on the system recovery disc included with your laptop, if you choose to add the driver from the provided disc. Place a check in the box next to your choice and then click "Next>" to continue. Wait while Windows searches from the driver using Windows Update, if this was your choice. An active Internet connection is required for Windows to successfully do this. Allow the computer to install the driver and then reboot the system for the webcam to become recognized by the system. Otherwise, you can use the system recovery disc or a driver downloaded directly from your laptop manufacturer to install the driver without using the Windows Update search feature. Open the CD/DVD-ROM drive and insert the system recovery disc, or place the driver downloaded from the manufacturer in an easily accessed file directory on your PC, such as on the desktop, or in your "My Documents" folder. Choose the option "Install the software automatically (Recommended)" in the "Add a device" application, and press "Next>" to begin searching for your webcam driver. The hardware wizard will search the system recovery disc and install the driver automatically. Press "Finish" to close the wizard and then reboot the computer to allow recognition of the webcam. Choose the option "Install the software manually" in order to browse to the driver location where you saved the driver and install it from there. Use the opened file manager and locate the driver. Click the "Next>" button to install the driver, then reboot the computer to add webcam functionality. Hope this helps.

Webcam Tools Don't Work

I apologize ahead of time for using all capital letters at times in my response, I use the all caps as a reminder only (not as condescending emphasis). If this response is difficult to understand, please let me know and we can hammer this thing out. If you have any additional questions, don't hesitate -- I really enjoy helping...

The solution to your problem is this:

* You are talking about the little 'camera' icon on the taskbar (indicating that it is currently running.)

A) That application you see on the taskbar is ONLY the motor and picture quality/zoom control application, not the actual viewing application itself.

B) So, when you open up a viewer (application that "captures" video), the controller application (the app that opened up for only a brief moment) will AUTOMATICALLY POP ITSELF UP ON YOUR SCREEN and is then ready for manual and auto tracking.

* The way that you would use your tracking and zoom functions through this control is by using VIRTUALLY ANY video capture device program.

** The most popular and widely used application that comes with most GearHead Webcams is "AMcap.EXE".

*** Goto Start, Programs, USB2.0 Motor.... -> and select AMcap. (or any other NON-:LOGITECH video capture software) ==> NON-LOGITECH NOTE: logitech software only works with logitech hardware.
