Follow the instructions below and it will work.

Disconnect the Camera from the USB port and reinstall the CD or Downloaded software program.

When the program asks you to connect the camera to the USB port, do so and it should work.

Then to use it on the Web, do this.
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:

1. Go to Tools, then Options, and click on Audio Settings and set the Microphone and Speakers to the computer Audio Card.
2. Then click on the Video Settings.
3. The camera if Installed Properly will come up and show a video picture.
4. Then, on the bottom of the page click on Save.

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

B. Yahoo Setup:

After downloading and installing Yahoo Messenger (http://www.soft32.com/download_30.html ) set it up as follows:

1. Go to Messenger at the top left and click on it.
2. Next go down to Preferences and click on it.
3. Next Calling and Devices on the right and set the Microphone and Speakers to the computer Audio Card.
4. Next go to the Test Audio section and (in blue writing) click on “Open the call setup assistant” and follow the instructions on the left window.

C. Windows Live Messenger:

1. After you start Windows Live Messenger, expand the view by clicking on the square on top left next to the red X.
2. Then on the Windows Live messenger window on the right side, click on “ “Show Menus.” And then click on “Show the Menu Bar”.
3. Next go to the Menu Bar on right side, click on “ “Action.”
4. Go to “TOOLS” and click “Audio and Video Setting” and follow the instructions.
NOTE: Your audio and video should work. Enjoy.

When done both the Audio and Video will function properly so you can chat and see family or friends you are connected to.

D. AIM (AOL) Messenger

1. On the VIM sign-in window click on Edit.
2. Then click on Settings Enhanced IM.
3. Next click on Enhanced IM.
4. Then click on Audio Video.
5. The Audio and Video portion has drop downs so you can select the proper audio card and video camera installed in you computer.
The Audi Video drop downs are
Microphone
Speaker
Camera

Adjust Your Audio and Video Settings:
In order to adjust your audio and video settings, please follow the steps given below:
1. Click the Audio and Video Settings button directly below the My Buddy or My Camera window. If you are currently participating in an AOL Live Video IM session, a message will display: You must disconnect the current AOL Live Video IM conversation before running setup. Would you like to disconnect now? Click the Yes button.
2. The Audio and Video Tuning Wizard will appear to help you verify that your camera, speakers and microphone are working properly. Follow the on-screen prompts.
Notes:
· The first time you use AOL Live Video IM, a message will display: Would you like to first check your audio and video settings? Click the Yes button. The Audio and Video Tuning Wizard will appear to help you verify that your camera, speakers and microphone are working properly. Follow the on-screen prompts.
· images in AOL Live Video IM may appear reversed, or as a mirror image (text may appear backwards) when you look at your own camera feed or at the picture-in-picture (PIP) display.
After making the settings your ready for a chat and video talk with your Family and Friends. Hope this helps. Bud

Get the webcam software from the website. If they have windows 7 software supported you should be fine. It they are giving software for windows xp only then it will not work. Bottom Line go on the website and install the webcam software again.

Webcam doesn't work the way I want it can't take photos


A webcam supplements communication with family and friends. It's often used for video chatting. But you could use your webcam to take pictures, as well.

Make sure your webcam is connected to the USB port of your computer, installed appropriately, and the computer is on and ready. Navigate to the "Start" menu and type "webcam" (without quotes) in the Search field. If you've previously installed webcam software, the program should appear in the search results. Double-click the selection to launch the webcam application. From the webcam dialog, select the "Quick Capture" icon (the example is for Logitech software, but other applications have similar functions with different Position the camera and person or object that you want to photo capture. Select the desired resolution from the drop-down menu. Click "Take Photo" to take a photograph. Browse to the picture destination to view your photo. Now that your photo is stored on your computer, you can email or print it.

Cant run webcam


Hi,
This means that either the driver for your webcam is not installed or it is not working properly. Go to your device manager and make sure the webcam has been installed correctly.

Webcam = Not working


When you installed the drivers, did you do so after loggin in as ADMINISTRATOR?? This is vital otherwise it will not work. Also a quote from the manual goes like this quote -"Exit the “Found New Hardware Wizard” by hitting the cancel button. Unplug the VGA webcam
from the USB. Insert the software CD into the drive tray. Follow the software installation
instructions. Once all software is installed (direct X, HP Web Cam drivers, ArcSoft
VideoImpression, ArcSoft Photo Impression), close the HP Webcam window and RESTART the
PC. After restarting the PC, plug in the VGA Webcam and run ArcSoft Video Impression to
capture a new video." unquote.
Hope this helps..................sodeep

Web cam not work


you have not written what operating system you are running and which webcam you are trying to install.
The procedure to install the webcam is same for all webcams. I am asuming the you are using winXP and you are trying to install webcam. put the cd which came with webcam in the cd drive and install the driver.Mostly the cd will Autorun. After installing the driver connect the webcam .The operating system will detect new hardware i.e webcam. To see wether your webcam is properly installed on your system right click on mycomputer>manage>click on Device Manager . you will see list of all the hardware on your system. you can expand imaging devices . under imaging devices you can see your webcam installed. If your webcam is not properly installed you will see a red symbol on your webcam listed in there.

I hope this information is useful to you . All the webcams will be installed in the same procedure .Please rate my post if you find it helpful.
Thanks and Regards

Getting error u do have video captureing hardware


Hai,
I think u have a wrong setup for ur web cam.
Try set it up as a web cam and not as a video device.
Video device needs a capture card or a proper driver for the device to work.
Hope u got the idea
