Normal 0 You need to go to the manufactures site and download the XP or VISTA driver for the camera. Then follow the info below to install the program.



Disconnect 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

    Hi, you listed your Microsoft web cam as an XL-3000. I have a VX-3000. I'd be glad to send you a copy of the CD if yours is the same. It's the CD I got with my camera. If its the same as what you have send me you e-mail address and I'll get your address to send it to.

Gmail does not support video as far as I know. To chat with your friend over Yahoo you need to download the Yahoo Instant Messenger software. Others use the Microsoft Live Messenger or AOL Instant Messenger. Skype is another popular Instand Messenger program.
