Question about Logitech QuickCam Pro 9000 Web Cam

2 Answers

Does not work on Windows Live Messenger.

I love this cam because it works great with AIM which is on of my instant messengers that I use almost every day. I also use Windows Live Messenger and it does not work for some reason. When I am chatting with friend and family, it keeps giving me this error saying "We couldn't start your camera device. Please check that your camera is not currently in use by another program, and then try again". I have unplugged my quick cam 9000 and plugged it back in and it still says that error. I check to see if anything else was connected to my cam, but nothing was currently in use. I have tried looking at my Windows Live Messenger settings and tried to open audio and video setup and it keeps saying "we are unable to run audio and video setup". I searched online to see if there was a driver for this specific Windows Live Messenger, and other info I could find. I found that many other people are having the same problem. Please help.

    I experienced the same problem and it happended when I downloaded the newest version of Widows Live Messenger 2009 Build 14.0.8064.206. Up to that point the camera worked perfectly. I'm still looking for solution.

Broadband will work better and smoother for sure. If the cam has a mic, then it would work for almost any chat system you can get. You will get both video and audio.

I can't find the software for webcam


If you are using Windows XP you can use the Samsung Play Camera program or any Instant Messenger application such as Yahoo Messenger or Windows Live Messenger.

Another free web cam utility is YawCam which you can also use for what you want.
