    I have the same cam installed but i can't find a way to configure it. I did in once with skype but i'm looking for an individual program to adjust quality, color, exposure, etc..

    Any suggestions? :(

    My acer orbicam is not working. everytime i click the incon would give me a prompt saying that that a problem caused the program to stop working and windows will notify me when a solution is available. I just purchased this laptop and for some a reason the orbicam just stopped working.

  • Anonymous Nov 08, 2007

    I have a message appear on my screen telling me that

    ACER ORBI CAM APPLICATION CAM HAS STOPPED WORKING.

    I have already spoken with a member of Acer technical team who said he would send me an email to try to resolve the problem. Ten days later this has yet to arrive.

    I have also emailed Acer, approximately one week ago with the same problem. Yes, I am still waiting to receive a reply!

    Cam someone PLEASE tell me how to resolve my problem as soon as possible.

    Thank you.

There is a utility bar that you can install that lets you change the default application folder:

** Note ** When the My Pictures or Pictures folder gets full, camera will not work - Cut and Paste all pictures in that
folder to another folder and restart Orbicam program.

If that does not work then do this:

Start - Programs - look for Acer Empowering Technology then Acer E-Recovery - The look at the bottom and you will
"Backup", "Burn disk" and Restore" choose Restore - choose Apps and Drivers at the bottom of Restore tab (it will say
extracting) - once extracted - click Install - click Vista or (XP) on the left - click Drivers - click Camera or CCD - on the
right side of the screen, then look for Bison driver or (or your model which can be found in device manager - control panel - system - device manager - Imaging devices) you have then click a phrase that has something like "Install now", follow on screen instructions. Then repeat steps above and instead of driver choose Bison (or your model which can be found in device manager - control panel - system - device manager - Imaging devices) Utility

Hi,
I recommend reinstalling the Orbicam driver and software. Here are the steps to do this:
1. Move your mouse over the Empowering technology widget and click on the eRecovery Manager icon or you may also press ALT and F10 on the keyboard to start the program.
Please note: The first time you access the eRecovery feature, you are prompted to create a password. If you forget it then you will have to use the recovery discs to reformat the system.
2. In the next window look at the bottom of the window and choose Restore.
3. Now choose Reinstall Applications/Drivers
4. Choose Install
5. Click on Windows Vista on the left side of the page
6. Choose applications and then choose CCD. It may also be under Camera in the drivers section.
7. On the right click the install link and follow the prompts.
8. The system may restart when installation is complete
Do not allow the system to shut down during this process. Plug in the AC adapter if necessary.

Good Luck!

Hi,
The solution if your acer orbicam improvvisely stopped to work (like dead) is really simple. Download the updated driver file from the acer ufficial website in the support division and reinstall it. After it the orbicam will work again.

    To fix the problem about the webcam that improvvisely not is working more on your Acer 5100 and some other series proceed as I indicate:
    create a new folder where to transfer the pictures contained in your images folder.
    Then reinstall the the webcam driver.
    For the future, leave the "images" folder empty or just put inside few pictures file (but for me would be better to leave it empty).

I agree with solution #14
It is the wiring on the camera itself. If I move the camera around I can get it to work. This, when all this time I tried deleting and downloading drivers, etc. My camera is logitec orbicam 1.3 mega and you can turn it to take pictures 180 opposite of the keyboard.
thanks guys

For those who have problem with their acer orbicam with windows vista try this: from "Start" cick "Run". Type "msconfig", it will bring u up "system configuration" window. Click on "Startup" tab. Search for "AcerOrbicamUVC" (or similar with that) and "CameraMonitor Application" . Uncheck both. Click OK. and then restart your windows. See if it works. :) good luck.

Good Luck

1. Move your mouse over the Empowering technology widget and click on the eRecovery Manager icon or you may also press ALT and F10 on the keyboard to start the program. Please note: The first time you access the eRecovery feature, you are prompted to create a password. If you forget it then you will have to use the recovery discs to reformat the system.
2. In the next window look at the bottom of the window and choose Restore.
3. Now choose Reinstall Applications/Drivers
4. Choose Install
5. Click on Windows Vista on the left side of the page
6. Choose Applications and then choose CCD. It may also be under Camera in the drivers section.
7. On the right click the install link and follow the prompts.
8. The system may restart when installation is complete
Do not allow the system to shut down during this process. Plug in the AC adapter if necessary.

Respectfully,

Four of Us same Problem, With same Solution for Acer Orbicam
my Problem is solved

Posted on May 20, 2008

Hey I have a acer aspire 5100 and my camera stopped working also. So I contacted acer about the problem. They gave me some instructions to fix it and it worked!!!

 

First we will create the new folder where the pictures will be moved to:

1. Click on the Start button.

2. Click on Computer

3. Double-click on the C drive

4. Double-click on Users

5. Double-click on your user name

6. Double-click on Desktop.

7. Once you are in the Desktop, right-click on a blank white area (not on an icon) then select Create > New Folder.

8. Call the folder “Picture Backup” or any other significant name. (Do not close the windows since we will need it later) in step 11

Now we will move the pictures from the old folder to the new one:

9. Click on the START button then click on Pictures

10. Click on one picture and then go to Edit > Select All. This will highlight all the files in this folder.

11. Right-click on one of the selected files then select Cut

12. Go back to the folder we created in step 7 and

13. Right-click and paste the contents we Cut from the Pictures folder.

Now, restart your computer and try the OrbiCam application again. This should allow your OrbiCam application to work again.

unfortunately there could be the possibility that your acer cam is not compatible with vista.. vista is a tricky os right now so it is particular on devices and compatability issues--i was an early adoptor and it isn't fun.. i would check out logitech cams, they seem to work well but look for the vista compatible.. you may want to visit your acer website and see if there are any update or downloads for current users that now have vista.. hope this helps..
