Question about Microsoft LifeCam VX-3000 Web Camera

1 Answer

I cannot adjust the audio on lifecam vx 3000. On the webcam window it does not allow me to click on audio/visual settings. On the windows messenger window it does not allow me to adjust the microphone. When I adjust the slide bar it just goes back to the left. There was no prompt to test the audio on installation and I already tried reinstalling the software. Any help would be appreciated!

Microsoft vx-3000 won't work on MSN!!


What you can do is click the Sound Icon beside the Nudge Button. It might bring up a window titled "Set up Audio and Video - Speaker/Microphone or Speakerphone" the Microsoft Vx-3000 has a microphone built in, so you can change your audio settings to "Microsoft Vx-3000" , then click next. The next one is Webcam. You can change the default settings to Microsot vx-3000.

If you've tried changing your settings for MSN before, then I'm not sure. This is the clever way for me :P
