Hi, You can try booting your Win98 PC with the camera already connected to the USB. Sometimes 98 has a hardtime detecting if and when a USB device is connected to it when it is already running. By booting with it already connected, 98 at the onset sees it and boots with all the needed support files. Further, by booting with the camera already connected, you can verify if drivers are really needed since 98 will auto detect with "New Hardware Found" message. It might just be that you have to reinstall the drivers all over again. Hope this be of some help to you. Pls post back how things are or should you need further information. Good luck and kind regards.

I have my camera pluged in and the drivers are all instaled. I got a message that the camera was ready to use but i cant find the camera software that allows me to open the program and take pics.


Hi skeeter2552,

I have looked into your problem and have found the following.
I managed to find the manual to your Webcam here:

http://www.amazon.com/Veo-Stingray-Web-camera-color/dp/B00006B9YB

According to the manual the Webcam originally came with a CD-ROM which had the drivers for Microsoft Windows 98, 98SE, Me, or 2000. It also had software called 'The Veo Stingray Suite' which enabled capture of still images and video etc.

If you can find the CD-ROM and you have a later version of Windows than the above, then it may be possible to use the Veo Stingray Suite in compatability mode, however I'm not sure if that will work.

As the drivers have installed and you had a message that the Camera was ready to use then this is a good start. As your camera is on a USB port then most up-to-date software should recognize it.

For example if you have Windows Movie Maker on windows 7, there is a webcam capture button for recording video. You will probably find that Software like Skype will also see it okay. Also you could look for Freeware for webcams but as always check for Viruses etc.

I hope this has been helpful.
Kind Regards
mparkyn

Hi,
The only thing you can try is windows update. Go to start, program, windows update, run the update and look for a hardware update in the left column, make sure the web cam is pluged in and turn on first.
Good luck.

Connection between camera and computer


What operating system are you using? Is you camera connected via USB? Have you tried using another USB port? Did you make sure to install the software before plugging in your camera?

Generally if you are running Windows 98, you will need to reboot after installing the software to even have a chance of the camera being recognized correctly.

If you are running Windows 2000, XP or Vista, the camera should be recognized and a driver installed or searched for from the CD software you installed before plugging in the camera.

Sometimes if you plug in the camera first without installing the software, the PC finds a new device with no driver. You can see this by going to Control Panel -> System -> Hardware -> Device Manager and you should see and exclamation on a device in the list. You need to remove this item and reboot your PC.

Now install the software first and when the install is done, then plug in your camera. Generally this works out pretty well.

Is another program trying to use the camera in whatever picture program you are using? windows 98 doesn't have built in photo taking software, so check the settings of what ever program you are using to make sure it is "looking" for the correct camera, if you can read korean handuri is a great solution.

windows 98 is no longer supported for microsoft, so your best solution would be to upgrade to a XP.
