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.
