Your cam and mic need to set up with the msn

After you start Windows Live Messenger,
expand the view by clicking on the square
on top left next to the red X.
Then on the Windows Live messenger window on the
right side, click on “ “Show Menus.” And then click
on “Show the Menu Bar”.
Next go to the Menu Bar on right side, click on Action.
Go to “TOOLS” and click “Audio and Video Setting
and follow the instructions.
please let me know if this has solved and don't forget to rate

Well i dont have a webcam on my laptop so i plugged this in, but it wont let me use it.


In the webcam world things are not quite that easy - you need to download drivers (software to make hardware work) and then configure the webcam to any chat program you want to use it in
1) download the driver from here

http://www.bioticaindia.com/pdc-301.html

An example of setting up a cam in msn

Set your webcam mic (if it has one as default)
Vista - If you have an earlier OS, you may have to access your hardware from the Control Panel.
Plug in the webcam

TEST SPEAKERS
Right click on speaker icon in System Tray or from Control Panel
Select "Playback Devices"
The speaker icon ( checked as working) and volume level graph should be visible
Right click on the volume graph and click "Test"
Left hand speakers followed by right hand should be heard

SET DEFAULT & TEST MIC
Click "Recording" tab.
To set required (webcam) mic as default - click on mic font to highlight and click "Properties"
In lower dropbox display "Use this device enable" click 'OK'
Click "Levels" tab and ramp up sliders ( adjust to suit later)
Return to "Recording". Test mic by speaking and make sure volume graph displays

Restart computer

Test your webcam here to make sure it broadcasts ok - Hit 'Allow' in the top window and check your cam in the left hand panel.

http://www.testmycam.com/

If it fails to work here concentrate on your webcam drivers and software before moving forward.

Having proved your cam is working ,you can configure it to WLM (MSN)

CONFIGURE SOFTWARE to MSN
Its good practice to disconnect and re-connect your webcam before you start - if you have been using it elsewhere the MSN software may have difficulty in locating it, even if you exited the previous program correctly.
The reason being, the webcam software can remain hooked-up to a program and needs to be rebooted.
Mine, I just unplug it from the USB and plug it back in to reboot the software.

Open MSN
Click 'Open Menu'
From 'Tools; navigate to, and click, 'Audio and Video setup'
Set your speakers
Click 'Test' - if OK, move on.
Set your mic as default
Use the slider to set volume and test.
Click 'Next'
This takes you to the video setup
Your webcam should be broadcasting - (if not - make sure the webcam is set as default - restart MSN)
Use 'Webcam Settings'to fine tune the picture.
Click 'Finish'

Re-start Computer.

CONFIGURE TO MSN

Re-boot the webcam by unplugging and plugging it back in again - Its always good practice to do this before you open MSN. If you have been using your webcam in another program, it can remain hooked up to the old program and you will get an error message " Unable to find webcam or being used elsewhere"

Webcam Connected
Open MSN
Click ( > ) Open Menu >Tools > Audio & Video set-up > Set mic as default and run through audio set-up > Next > set webcam as default and adjust Webcam Settings > Finish

Logitech headphones not working with MSN


The internet bandwidth or speed is too low or being occupied by some other programs.Thereby leaving a low speed for the msn to work.The solution would be close some applications using internet or reinstall the msn messenger.

When i am on msn and want to put on webcam a message appears in a conversation saying Messenger is not available right now. Please try again later. (0x8ac70202)


This might be a compatibility problem between your webcam drivers with the new Windows Live Messenger program. You may want to:

1. Update your webcam drivers and see if Windows Live Messenger can detect it when you run the Audio Video setup from its Tools menu.

2. Or you can downgrade back to the older version of Windows Live Messenger which is compatible for your camera. Doing this however also requires that you uninstall all the Windows Live Beta products from your computer.

Note: You will not see a separate Windows Live Messenger on your Add/Remove programs, instead you will either see there Windows Live Beta products or Windows Live Essentials.

You can download the older versions of Windows Live Messenger from:

Windows Live Messenger 8.1:
http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?familyid=d78f2ff1-79ea-4066-8ba0-ddbed94864fc&displaylang=en

No sound


You will have to set the logitech webcam up to the medium you are using yahoo...msn. This is done after the software is installed.I don't use yahoo but on msn open it up then go to tools on the msn page at the top above all your contacts.Open the tools and go to webcam setup,click on it and follow the steps.This will get the mic working.It took me awhile to realize you had to do it twice once for the software setup and again to set it up to mate to MSN.
