Question about Acer TravelMate 2300 Notebook

2 Answers

Orbicam I'm using a acer travelmate 3262mxmi, I bought this sometime january of this year. Everything was fine and the orbicam was working for the first couple of months, however I don't use it that much and I haven't tried this for more than 4 months. This morning I tried using the orbicam, however when I tried using it the problem "camera is in use by another application" appeared. I tried rebooting but the same problem occured, I also tried uninstalling the program but the same trouble keeps on appearing everytime I boot up. Can you please help me with this one. Thanks.

Re: orbicam

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
