    Sorry Bud but I have done all the obvious things and they don't work. I finally removed all the Logitech software from the PC, plugged in the camera and let Windows identify is as a USB Device. It now works fine in all applications but, without the Logitech software, I can't use the camera "Follow Me" motor function or access any of the other Logitech menus. Ergo, back to my original question, does anyone know how to make a Logitech Sphere AF webcam immune to disabling updates or better yet, does anyone know which update causes the Logitech mike function to be disabled?. Please let me know, it's driving me nuts.

Try use the SKYPE options, setup.
That will step through checking and setting up the camera and microphone FOR SKYPE.
You need to set up you equipment for SKYPE.

Also check the microphone levels for your camera by right click the volume control, call up properties and select audio, make sure your camera is listed as the "recording device" and the same in "voice"

Now close the boxes and right click on volume control again this time select "open volume control" make sure "microphone" is in the list.

whilst there select "properties" then tick "recording then OK

Make sure there is a tick in "microphone here too this is important.
move the slider to about 3/4 up

If there is an "advanced" button under microphone then click it the tone controls may be greyed out but try putting a tick in the "mic boost" and close any boxes that are open


You should be ready to try SKYPE again you may have to make some small alterations to the recording level and the volume level for the microphone (they are two separate things as you have just seen) but yo should be good to go

Normal 0 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.
Hope this helps. Bud

I wouldn't reccomend buying a camera with a built in mike. They're usually pretty awful. Far better a separate mike or headset with built in mike.

You camera must have come alongwith a CD. Kindly browse inside the CD you will deffinetly find manual in pdf or word format. for connectivity you can connect your cam to any of the usb and 2 other jacks to green and red jacks of your audio and mike inputs of your PC. Kindly run the setup/exe file in your CD before connecting your webcam to your pc.

Web camera trouble with skype


Check with the Task Manager to make sure there really is no porgram using the webcam, Logitech also has an application installed that is not visible. In some cases this background application is actually required, in others it can cause problems. Not sure if this is true for the Veo cam.

DCS-1000w through Dlink DIR-655 router


These cameras are touchy. Hold the reset button on the back in for about 20-30 seconds. Bring up the CD software you got with the camera, it should spot the camera right off and you can configure. That seems to be the only way I can communicate with this model. After setup, then browsers, etc seem to work fine. I would also download the latest Firmware and update.
