Chicony USB 2.0 Camera: NEED HELP!!!!!

I am using a Toshiba Satellite A215-S4747. It has a built in webcam (Chicony USB 2.0 camera) and since I upgraded to vista ultimate it has not worked. I tried what you said to do Control Panel -> System and Maintenance ->Device Manager, and when I got to the folder was under +Other devices and was called Unknown device. When I tried to upgrade it (via internet and browsing) the Computer said "Windows encountered a problem installing the driver software for your device" and explains that Chicony USB 2.0 Camera cannot be installed. If you can help, email me at ezralesser@comcast.net. I have a toshiba P205-S6247 and after installing viast ultimate the web cam drivers didn't install. I get the following error msg: The driver installation file for this device is missing a necessary entry. This may be because the INF was written for Windows95 or later. Contact your hardward vendor.

Hi...i have the same problem...I have bought Toshiba Satellite L310-S411, Built In Camera (Chicony USB 2.0 Camera) is not working after up grade to vista home premium...Always showing in the Start Up...Webcam Driver Open Failed. Please restart your camera or Computer....Can anyone who can solve this problem?kindly email me aurantcr70@yahoo.com thank's

Need to reinstall webcam driver


I've found the camera driver for your notebook, but it is suitable to Windows 7 only. It's here, anyway. Hope it works for you.

Toshiba A-200 10W webcam locked by another application


I don't know what exactly fixed the problem but I managed to fix it. I'm using a Toshiba Satellite A215 by the way.

Here's what I did
Control Panel >> System Maintenance >> Device Manager

Go to Imaging Devices and right-click "Chicony USB 2.0 Camera" and choose "Update Driver Software"

First I clicked on "Search automatically for updated driver software" but everything was already up to date. So then I went to "Browse my Computer for Driver Software" and then to "Let Me Pick from a List". I updated the USB Video Device and rebooted but that only made it worse I think. Then I tried updating one of the "Chicony USB 2.0 Camera"'s and that did the trick. Yey. So now my webcam works.
