Uninstall your existing software.
Download new software from Unzip.

Remove any batteries.
Set switch to 'On'
Set Mode to Video
When software installation is complete, plug in camera to PC with USB cable supplied.
Run installed program on PC. The Mega camera screen will appear. Click on 'Live'. Your camera picture should appear on the screen.

Hello! I have not used my cam as Webcam for many years, but I think all you have to do is connect the cam with PC, move the SELECT NOB / SWITCH on WEBCAM mood and the Windows (XP) will automatically detect NEW HARDWARE (Webcam). Provide the drivers information and files from the disk and you are done.

BTW, its webcam result is not as good as its still picture quality.

Best of Luck
