Re: it says i have other webcam programmes open ?
My name is ArmyMason, their could be a program running in the background that you might not know about. If you are using Windows XP, click Ctrl, Alt, Del keys on you keyboard at the same time. This opens a box called the Windows task manager, click on the Processes tab above and see if you have anything related to the camera running in there. If you don't know what each thing is I suggest using Google.com to research what each program goes to. Please do not start closing programs or you may hurt your computer. You might figure out what program is using the camera going this route and if you do you could either uninstall the problem program or remove it from the automatic start up via msconfig.
Hope this helps, if you need futher assistance please consider using our Premium service.

Make sure there is a period before the jpg, you are searching the computer for all the jpeg files which are the picture files your camera takes. When it find these files it will tell you where it is putting them. Once you find them, you can drag and drop them into another folder of your choosing.

If you are trying to use live messenger 8 you may have to use the set up utility. Open Messenger, show menu, tools, audio and video set up. Checks webcam, mic and speakers. If it says webcam is being used by another application, check the taskbar. If there is a webcam icon there, right click and close. Hope this helps.
