    The xbox live camera when attached to my computer does not recognize it being even on the system. I would really like to figure this problem out

    It's a real shame this problem exists as the camera is excellent. The cam appears to work with everything except Yahoo so I would suggest that the problem's at Yahoo's end and therefore they need to release a compatible version of YIM or a patch to enable to the cam to work

Normal 0 Also send this to your family and friends so they have their computer setup properly.
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.
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

Webcam not working


Windows Messenger is pretty much hit and miss. I have a built in webcam on my laptop. Sometimes it works sometimes it doesn't. There's no real fix to this problem, just cross your fingers. Restarting your computer works sometimes but not always.
