My Acer webcam won't save pictures

I am running an Acer 5315-2813. It has an integrated Crystal Eye webcam. The program opens fine and the image is fine, but when I click the camera button to take a picture, a thumbnail will appear in the bottom portion of the program where the pictures stay after you take them, but only for a second. It will then disappear. It appears my pictures aren't saving. Really frustrating. Does anyone know what it means when your picture will just disappear after a second?

    The thumnails appear after taking a shot, but disappear a split second after.

    Nothing is working. I've had this problem FOREVER. I wish I knew how to change the file path for my pictures so they would save where I want them to.

  • deman_michel Apr 22, 2009

    I still have this problem. It's so annoying. I wish I knew how to change the file path on the Acer Webcam to save in a folder that I've created so that I know where they are going!

    Acer OrbiCam Application (Suyin).zip

    I just used this one, and it didn't make any difference. I'm pretty sure that's the one I should have been using. I'm not exactly computer literate.

How to use webcam on acer aoi-301 labtop


Check this first: Certain Acer laptops come with a built-in Webcam called the "Acer Crystal Eye." This Webcam is located in the center of your lid just above your LCD screen. Those models that possess this integrated Webcam also have a program with the same name. This "Acer Crystal Eye Webcam" program allows you to record video through your Webcam and save it on your hard drive.

Step 1 Click "Start," "All Programs," "Acer Crystal Eye Webcam" and click the program shortcut of the same name. This opens up the Webcam where you can see yourself, but it hasn't started recording yet.
Step 2 Click the video camera icon, which is the one second from the left under the video display. This starts recording the video.
Step 3 Click the video camera icon again to stop recording and save your video. You can also delete the video by clicking the clip's thumbnail on the bottom panel and clicking the trashcan icon.
Step 4 Locate the video file on your hard drive in your "My Videos" folder, which can be found inside your "My Documents" folder.

Driver webcam crystal eye


Crystal Eye is a webcam application included with some Acer laptops.
Laptops that have the Crystal Eye WebCam application installed also have a camera built in to the monitor.
Crystal Eye can adjust the camera's brightness, contrast and color intensity, and capture photos.
If you removed the Crystal Eye WebCam application from your Acer laptop on accident, you can download the software from the Acer website and reinstall the application to your PC.

Click "Start." Click "Control Panel." Input "device" into the search box. Click "Device Manager."
Expand "Imaging Devices."
Double-click the Web camera to find the name of the manufacturer.
Go to Acer Support.
Select "Notebook" from the "Select Your Product" menu.
Select the notebook's product line, then select its product model.
Click "Confirm."
Click the "Applications" tab.
Select an operating system from the "Operating Systems" drop-down menu on the far right.
Scroll to "Camera." Download "WebCam Application."
Use the manufacturer information found in Device Manager to determine which vendor to download from.
Save the file to the desktop.
Double-click the file to run the setup for the Crystal Eye WebCam.
Follow the on-screen instructions to complete the installation.
Acer supporthttp://support.acer.com/us/en/default.aspx
Click start control panel view devices and printers you should see your webcam from there
if you are have trouble with your webcam
Click start control panel administrative tools computer management device manager scroll down image devices you could see a yellow question mark?
right click to reinstall drivers or update driver xp
Click start right click on computer select properties device manager scroll to image devices expand right click to update driver in W7
http://download.cnet.com/2000-20_4.html
on the home page you should see a search tab just type in what you are looking for
IE: webcam name webcam driver you might have to try a few times to get it right
software if you dont have the driver you will need to download one here rather doing a driver hunt which can take hours
http://download.cnet.com/slimdrivers-free/3000-18513_4-75279940.html
Windows XP/Vista/7/8
It might take some time being a freeware driver solution
note: it will find all of your outdated drivers
this is a free driver solutions
This will automatically search for and find the correct driver
you will have to update every driver individually once you update you might be asked whether you
want to restart or make a system restore point click no to both of these then continue updating each driver free then restart once all of the drivers have been updated
Some webcams and programs require additional software, although that should be installed with the webcam if things are right.
But is does not harm to check if your Java, Flash and Quicktime software are installed and up to date.
But certainly check your DirectX software, since all video applications, including webcams, use DirectX for video processing.
Try downloading the latest DirectX version and install it (Windows XP: DirectX 9.0c - Windows Vista: DirectX 10).
