I have a logitech webcam that worked fine last year and then i'm trying it again over the summer and it says that the camera is not connected to the computer. however, when i plug it into the usb port, the computer recognizes that there's something and a pop-up shows saying that "found new hardware: logitech.." etc. i've unplugged and replugged various times and restarted my computer as well.

Re: Logitech Webcam "Disconnected"
Reinstall using info below.
Did you install the software with the camera connected to
the computer? Disconnect the camera from the USB port and reinstall the
software. When the program asks you to connect the camera, do so, and it
should work. Hope this is of some help.Bud

Sorry to hear that, you have to know if the CD is the right installer for your logitech webcam. Go to a logitech store and bring your webcam for a compatible installer of your webcam. Or, try first re downloading the program then try again...
Try this free webcam test site. If you don't see yourself in the window after clicking Allow, then click on the camera icon below the window. A drop-down box appears. Look for your Logitech camera and select it. You should see yourself. If the Logitech is not a choice on the drop-down list then the driver is either disabled or corrupted. Go to the Logitech website, under the Support tab, Products, Webcams, and find and download the driver for your model of webcam. Once you download it try the free test tool again to verify all is working.
One more thing. Make sure your browser is closed when you plug in your webcam. Then when the browser is opened it will recognize the device. If the browser is already open then it might not recognize the webcam. Good luck!
Go to Start->Control Panel->System->Hardware->Device Manager. Here locate your webcam, select it and delete it.
Now disconnect the webcam from the laptop.
Insert the Logitech CD and install the drivers afresh.
Connect the webcam and allow Windows to detect it and load its drivers. Windows will take a long time to do this.
Now configure the Instant manager to use this webcam as default camera.
And start using.
But before you do that start the webcam program to use this camera to check if it takes the video continuously. I do not see any problems now.
Trick with Logitech is to load drivers with the device disconnected.
