    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.

    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...
    ) 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.







      1. Windows
        Live Messenger:


    Go to this
    site http://download.live.com/?sku=messenger
    and download 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: Your 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.





    D. AIM (AOL)
    Messenger



    Go to this site http://dashboard.aim.com/aim and Launch
    AIM AOL Messenger.



    1. On the
      VIM sign-in window click on Edit.

    2. Then
      click on Settings Enhanced IM.

    3. Next
      click on Enhanced IM.

    4. Then click
      on Audio Video
      .

    5. The
      Audio and Video portion has drop downs so you can select the proper audio
      card and video camera installed in you computer.


    The Audi Video drop downs are


    Microphone

    Speaker


    Camera

    The audio and camera should function now.





    Additional information to use with VIM settings,





    Adjust Your Audio and Video Settings:

    In order to adjust your audio and
    video settings, please follow the steps given below:

    1. Click the Audio and Video Settings button directly
    below the My Buddy or My Camera
    window. If you are currently participating in an AOL Live Video IM session, a
    message will display: You must disconnect the current AOL Live
    Video IM conversation before running setup. Would you like to disconnect now?

    Click the Yes button.

    2. The Audio and Video Tuning Wizard will appear to help
    you verify that your camera, speakers and microphone are working properly.
    Follow the on-screen prompts.


    Notes:



    • The first time you use AOL
      Live Video IM, a message will display: Would you like to
      first check your audio and video settings?
      Click the Yes button. The Audio and Video Tuning
      Wizard
      will appear to help you verify that your camera, speakers
      and microphone are working properly. Follow the on-screen prompts.

    • images in AOL Live Video IM
      may appear reversed, or as a mirror image (text may appear backwards) when
      you look at your own camera feed or at the picture-in-picture (PIP)
      display.


    After making the settings your ready for a chat and video
    talk with your Family and Friends. Hope
    this helps. Bud
