Once you install your web camera you should not unplug it. Doing so can cause drivers to be corrupt and the camera will fail to function.
Re-install the CD software program as below.
Normal 0 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/skype/windows/beta/downloading/ ) 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.
Hope this helps. Bud

I have a veo stingray connect/webcam but it will not run on my dell inspiron 1545 laptop


I hate it soo bad when I get new hardware and it doesn't work right. WebCams for some reason can be the worst! I am going to assume your computer is running Windows 7 Home premium as that is the standard with this model.

First, download the drivers from this site:
http://www.bioticaindia.com/veo-stingray-330vb39c.html

DO NOT PLUG IN YOUR CAM ... in fact, if you have already tried this once, make sure you have completely removed/uninstalled the driver files from your system. Run a registry cleaner (ccleaner is awesome and free) and reboot your system.

WITHOUT plugging in your cam, right click on the driver file for the camera and select "Properties"

on the top of the window which opens, select the tab which says "COMPATIBILITY"

Check the box next to "Run this program in compatibility mode for:" and scroll the options to Windows Vista Service Pack 2

NEXT select the option at the bottom of the properties box which says"RUN THIS PROGRAM AS ADMINISTRATOR"

Close the properties box and double click the driver file to initialize the driver installation.

Plug the Web Cam in as prompted.

Try using Skype, Yahoo Messenger or (free) Easy Web Cam to test your camera. It should work. If the Vista settings fail to make the camera work in Windows 7, try the same steps but use compatibility mode for Windows XP Service Pack 3.

Hope this helps Fix Ya! If you were able to solve the problem with these instructions, share the love and rate up this support with positive feedback and a testimonial. Santa will be watching!

How do i turn on my web cam i just got this one today and i dont know if i plug in on the right or left ..


When your Offspring Technologies CAM30 personal web camera plugged into your computer. It is automatically on when it's plugged, you can use it by having yahoo messenger or skype there it will start or pop up your webcam if you are chatting online. And of course you can also use your webcam from the installed software Offspring Technologies CAM30 Personal Web Camera.

It is plugged into the usb plug on the computer but it doesnt show up on skype that a web cam is in use


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.
