Dear Ram,
G'day from New Zealand! First Google the camera model & search for any faults/problems; then search for MICROSOFT compatability... Do you have the installation cd for the camera? If so, check it with your anti-virus program, then install. (If you get a warning pop-up at this stage saying something like: "...installing this program may damage your computer..." then you can usually ignore this as it will always report this with new programs...although it is a bit suspicious if the camera IS a genuine Microsoft model?) However if you find that the camera model IS compatible then you can generally ignore this message especially if the software passes the anti-virus check ok. Sorry I can not be more definite, but I hope that this helps. GBU! - Bruce.

Cannot video call


POP ups could be an old outdated webcam i frequently have similar or same pop ups.
If you are concerned it might really damage your computer have a close look at the webcam see if there is any external damage (open wires) the only thing it could damage are the drivers
Click start control panel view devices and printers you should see your webcam from there
if you are have trouble with your webcam
Click start control panel administrative tools computer management device manager scroll down image devices you could see a yellow question mark?
right click to reinstall drivers or update driver xp
Click start right click on computer select properties device manager scroll to image devices expand right click to update driver in W7
http://download.cnet.com/2000-20_4.html
on the home page you should see a search tab just type in what you are looking for
IE: webcam name webcam driver you might have to try a few times to get it right
tick in either windows software or the all software box.
If you don't have or cant find the driver you will need to download one here rather doing a driver hunt which can take hours
http://download.cnet.com/slimdrivers-free/3000-18513_4-75279940.html
It might take some time being a freeware driver solution
Note: This will find all of your outdated drivers
This program will automatically search for and find the correct driver
you will have to update every driver individually once you update you might be asked whether you want to restart or make a system restore point.
Click no to both of these then continue updating each driver free then restart once all of the drivers have been updated.
Some webcams and programs require additional software, although that should be installed with the webcam if things are right.
But is does not harm to check if your Java, Flash and Quicktime software are installed and up to date.
But certainly check your DirectX software, since all video applications, including webcams, use DirectX for video processing.
Try downloading the latest DirectX version and install it (Windows XP: DirectX 9.0c
Windows Vista: DirectX 10).
http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows7/Which-version-of-DirectX-is-on-your-computer


Go to Facebook and log into your account.
Click the "Profile" tab.
Click the "Video" link in the "Status" menu.
Select the "Record a Video" option. For privacy reasons, Facebook requests permission to access your webcam and microphone.
Check the box next to "Allow" and click "Close."
You will appear in real time on the Facebook webcam window.
Position yourself in front of the webcam and click the red "Record" button to begin recording your new video. When you're finished, press the "Stop" button.

Can't make a video E-mail call/web chat


Gmail helps you stay in touch in a variety of ways. Its offerings range from its basic function email to more advanced features such as phone calls and video chatting. To send an email or chat via text on Gmail, you don't need to do anything more than create an account. Before you can start video chatting with your Gmail contacts, however, you must install the required software.

Visit the Google Voice installation page (link below). http://www.google.com/chat/video Click the blue "Install voice and video chat" button. When the process is complete, you see a page congratulating you on installing Google voice and video chat. Click the "Gmail" link on this page to go to your Gmail account. Hover your mouse over an online Gmail contact in your contact list. Click "Chat" in the list that appears. This opens a chat with the contact in question in the lower right corner of your Gmail screen. Click the small video camera icon within the chat window to initiate a video chat. Before the chat begins, your contact must accept the video call. You and the person you're calling must have webcams. Most modern laptops come with built-in webcams, and peripheral webcams are available at computer stores.

Regarding the chat we had recently, I've found yet another converter that is supposed to enable transferring files between Works 4.5 and Word 2000:
http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=9b16eb3c-6df6-4545-89ff-05c627fba36b&DisplayLang=en
If you give it a try, then it will make sense to spend some time converting your files to a Word format, which is bound to be supported by current and future Office applications, both Microsoft and 3rd party. This will ensure that one day you won't find yourself with half of your life's worth of files that you can't read on some new computer...
Good luck :)

How do I get microsoft live chat wireless headset with skype?


Normal 0 Make sure you select the wireless when you do the setup.

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.

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.
Hope this helps. Bud

Fire wire and video driver problems


Horizontal bars on the LCD display is ONE indicator of a dirty playback head on the camcorder. Purchase a head cleaning tape (Bestbuy, Target, etc., for about $20) and try cleaning the playback head. I had to do that on my SC-D365 yesterday (9/7/07) and it cleared up the problem. Good luck!
