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?
HI guys I also have acer aspire laptop. In acer eye crystal the picture is saved in "My document\My picture" and video is saved in "My document\My video". I am sure now you will find your picture and videos.

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.
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.
Click the video camera icon, which is the one second from the left under the video display. This starts recording the video.
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.
Locate the video file on your hard drive in your "My Videos" folder, which can be found inside your "My Documents" folder.
Click "Start." Click "All Programs." Open the "Crystal Eye Webcam" folder. Click "Acer Crystal Eye Webcam" to launch the webcam and turn on the camera. If "Acer Crystal Eye" isn't available on the Start Menu, go to "Acer," then click "Acer OrbiCam."
Click the drop-down menu on the toolbar to change the resolution. Click the gear icon to change the settings.
Click the camera icon to capture a photo. To turn off the Acer webcam, click the "X" button on the top of the window.
