Re: i have a web cam but i think i need the software
See section C. Windows Live
Messenger in the info below to setup the Audio & Video. 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. A.Skype Setup:
After downloading and installing Skype (http://www.skype.com/intl/en-gb/download/skype/windows/beta/downloading/)
set it up as follows:

The camera and audio should function properly.Your friends and Family will now be able to
see and her to you. B.Yahoo Setup:

Test your webcam here to make sure it broadcasts ok - Hit 'Allow' in the top window and check your cam in the left hand panel.
Having proved your cam is working ,you can configure it to WLM (MSN)
CONFIGURE SOFTWARE to MSN Its good practice to disconnect and re-connect your webcam before you start - if you have been using it elsewhere the MSN software may have difficulty in locating it, even if you exited the previous program correctly. The reason being, the webcam software can remain hooked-up to a program and needs to be rebooted. Mine, I just unplug it from the USB and plug it back in to reboot the software. If yours is integral with the computer you will have to re-start the computer, use a keyboard shortcut or disable / enable the webcam from the Device Manager.
Open MSN Click 'Open Menu' From 'Tools; navigate to, and click, 'Audio and Video setup' Set your speakers Click 'Test' - if OK, move on. Set your mic as default Use the slider to set volume and test. Click 'Next' This takes you to the video setup Your webcam should be broadcasting - (if not - make sure the webcam is set as default - restart MSN) Use 'Webcam Settings'to fine tune the picture. Click 'Finish'
FIRSTLY TRY INSTALLING THE SOFTWARE ALSO MAKESURE YOU SERVICE PACK FOR XP IS UPTO DATE THE FINAL VERSION IS SERVICE PACK 3 WHICH IS FREE FROM MICROSOFT THROUGH WINDOWS UPDATE ALSO GOOGLE AROUND WITH( XP SERVICE PACK 3 DOWNLOAD) ALSO TRY YOUR FATHERS WEB CAM ON YOUR COMPUTOR AND CHECK YOUR ATTATCHMENTS
make sure that the mic line is plugged in to the right port (i.e. pink), since most webcams have separate mic lines. then make sure the mic is not muted and is selected for capture on the volume control in windows.
Try to go to driver zone.com but first I would do a search for Mikoma dc-7120 and you should get the company name to come up and go to drivers box and put in DC-7120 and it will show drivers for the operating system you are using. Good luck!
