I plugged it in and nothing is working . I have an hp laptop running vista. I have to use this camera for a class at CTUOnline due tomorrow. Help! Rhonda

When you plug in the camera does vista show that new hardware is found and if any lights are on the device do they come on?. Can you see any image of a PC card on the status bar near the time , if you do then double click it and it will open the hardware wizard that is looking for the drivers and if you have internet connected to then it should find the drivers automatically. Were you using this cam with Vista before or Windows XP ? Try installing the driver that is on the CD that came with the camera or download from his location

The cam should work without the driver on windows but sometimes it might not find the right one.

How to connect to remote camera

To create new Camera Window
  • Click New Camera from the File menu.
  • Camera Setting dialog box appears.
Camera Setting dialog box

Camera Setting dialog box helps you control selected video source. To open the Camera Settings dialog box, select Camera Settings from the File menu.

Set a preview rate in the Preview Frame Rate box. It indicates the number of frames per second in the camera window. The default value is 10 frames per second. This value doesn't interfere with broadcast or record frame rate.

Remote Cameras
Remote camera is another Active WebCam program with enabled Remote Access launched on remote computer. Both programs use UDP protocol to communicate each other. If connection with Remote camera goes through firewall, make sure that the IP address of your computer, local and remote ports are opened on the firewall, and the UDP protocol is enabled.

To connect to Remote Camera
In the Device tab click to select Remote Camera.

Specify the computer address in the IP address box. Don't place the protocol prefix (like http://) in the address, just four digits of IP address delimited by dots, like: You can find out the remote computer IP address by clicking Get Computer IP Address from the Tools menu on the remote computer.

Type port, which is opened on remote computer for remote access in the Remote Port box. This value is specified in the Port box in the Broadcasting | Remote Access properties on the remote computer.

Specify port, which will be used to receive data from remote camera, in the Local Port box. If your network uses firewall, make sure that Local Port and computer's IP address are opened in the firewall. Use the Check the Port Availability button to make sure that this port is not used by another program.

If the remote computer requires authorization, enter user name and password in the appropriate boxes. The authorization could be set in the Broadcasting tab in the Camera Settings window in the Remote Access Additional Settings window on the remote computer.
If the Remember Password check box is checked, the user name and password will be saved among the session parameters.

Cycle through cameras
If you have multiple cameras you can set up a cycler to have the program to change cameras automatically.

To configure the Camera Cycler:
  • Click Camera Settings from the File menu.
  • Select Cycle through cameras to activate cycler.
  • Type cycler interval in seconds.
Select cameras to cycle.

DCS-1000w through Dlink DIR-655 router

These cameras are touchy. Hold the reset button on the back in for about 20-30 seconds. Bring up the CD software you got with the camera, it should spot the camera right off and you can configure. That seems to be the only way I can communicate with this model. After setup, then browsers, etc seem to work fine. I would also download the latest Firmware and update.

Dcs 5300 not acessin ie 7 get s http 400 error

Actually, the problem itself is not actually Silverlight, it is simply that the D-Link cameras appear to have a buffer overflow or some sort of problem with a long header. Specifically when the HTTP Header "Accept" gets too long, the device errors out and returns a 400 error. It just seems to be that Silverlight extends this header to a point where you can't use it. Even without Silverlight you could see this response.

If you want to see/modify your HTTP Header "Accept" items, simply go to the following in the registry:

HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\Accepted Documents

I simply removed all of my office apps cause I really don't care to view them in my browser anyhow.

Good luck!

WVC11B Wireless - B Video Camera and Windows Vista

Normal 0 You need to go to the manufactures site and download the VISTA driver for the camera. Then follow the info below to install the program.

Disconnect the Camera from the USB port and reinstall the CD or Downloaded software program. When the program asks you to connect the camera to the USB port, do so and it should work.
Hope this helps. Bud

I'm not a blonde- but the damn GE Easycam is making me crazy.

Marueen, GE computer accessories are now sold and supported by Jasco. Their download page has drivers for your webcam; unfortunately they don?t have any Vista certified drivers. Unfortunately lots of hardware manufacturers are not creating new Vista capable drivers for older equipment and I suspect Jasco will follow the trend as well. You can try downloading the latest XP driver from their site and seeing how it works but in the long run you may just be better off getting a more mainstream product with Vista drivers. Jasco download page: Let us know if you have any other questions and please don?t forget to rate this post.
