My Computer will not communicate with my camera The camera is listed in the hard drive


You didn't say why you want the camera and computer to communicate, so I'm assuming it's so you can download photos from the camera to the computer. You also didn't specify the make and model of your camera, so I'm assuming it uses a memory card of some type.
Try NOT connecting your camera to your computer.
The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.
Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo cataloging program such as Picasa ( http://picasa.google.com ).

Webcam driver


Click start control panel-view devices and printers.
You should see your webcam from there.
If you have trouble with your webcam:
Click start control panel-administrative tools-computer management-device manager-scroll down image
devices you could see a yellow question mark ?

right click to reinstall drivers or update driver xp.
Click start right click on
computer select properties device manager scroll to image devices expand right
click to update driver in W7
http://download.cnet.com/2000-20_4.html
on the home page you should
see a search tab just type in what you are looking for IE:
webcam name webcam driver you might have to try a few times to get it right
software if you don\'t have the driver you will need to download one here rather doing a driver hunt, which can take hours.
http://download.cnet.com/slimdrivers-free/3000-18513_4-75279940.html
Windows XP/Vista/7/8
It might take some time being a freeware driver solution.
note: It will find all of your outdated drivers.
This is a free driver solutions.
This will automatically search for and find the correct driver.
You will have to update every driver individually once you update. You might be
asked whether you want to restart or make a system restore. Point click no to both of these, then continue updating each driver free, then restart once all of the drivers have been updated.
Some webcams and programs require additional software, although that should be installed with the webcam if things are right. But it doesn\'t hurt to check if your Java, Flash and Quicktime software are installed and up to date.
But certainly check your DirectX software, since all video applications, including
webcams, use DirectX for video processing. Try downloading the latest DirectX version and install it (Windows XP: DirectX 9.0c Windows Vista: DirectX 10).
http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows7/Which-version-of-DirectX-is-on-your-computer
If you still have no webcam installed, Run the "Add a device"application, accessed by clicking on the "Start" button, opening the "Control Panel," and then double-clicking on "Add a device."
The "Add a device" window will open and Windows will search for devices connected to your system but not installed.
Click on the webcam name that shows in the search box and
then click "Next."
Choose whether you want Windows to search for the webcam
device driver using Windows Update over the Internet, or if you\'d prefer to
have the device manager search for the driver using a disc supplied by your
laptop manufacturer. Most drivers can be found on the system recovery disc
included with your laptop, if you choose to add the driver from the provided disc.
Place a check in the box next to your choice and then click "Next" to continue.
Wait while Windows searches from the driver using Windows
Update, if this was your choice.
An active Internet connection is required for Windows to
successfully do this. Allow the computer to install the driver and then reboot
the system for the webcam to become recognized by the system.
Otherwise, you can use the system recovery disc or a driver
downloaded directly from your laptop manufacturer to install the driver without
using the Windows Update search feature.
Open the CD/DVD-ROM drive and insert the system recovery
disc, or place the driver downloaded from the manufacturer in an easily
accessed file directory on your PC, such as on the desktop, or in your "My
Documents" folder.
Choose the option "Install the software automatically
(Recommended)" in the "Add a device" application, and press
"Next" to begin searching for your webcam driver.
The hardware wizard will search the system recovery disc and
install the driver automatically. Press "Finish" to close the wizard
and then reboot the computer to allow recognition of the webcam.
Choose the option "Install the software manually"
in order to browse to the driver location where you saved the driver and
install it from there.
Use the opened file manager and locate the driver.
Click the "Next" button to install the
driver, then reboot the computer to add webcam functionality.

Need to intall my pc camera


Normally if you just connect the pc camera to your computer , it should start to install the needed drivers automatically ... try that to see if it works (if you cant find it , it will be in my computer) if not : if it doesnt , insert a cd that you recieved with it and install programs from it
if cd is not included : go online and search you make and model drivers and download then install the needed driver (drivers are like softwares tht is needed to run your camera )

Can no longer fax or scan


got to control panel and uninstall all the applications and drivers related to your printer in the machine running vista. Then place the printer installation CD came with your printer in the CD drive. Now just connect your printer to machine and switch it on. Vista should display new Hardware connected or any other sound alert acknowledging that printer is connected to your machine. If it prompts for driver installation, select it to search for drivers automatically. Before that make sure that your printer installation cd is in drive. Vista will automatically search for the drivers and installs it. If it's not, then the cd came with your printer may not have drivers for vista. go to HP website and download driver for vista and install it.

Cannot load software cd that came with camera


If you do not have the software, you need to download the software from one of the following locations:

Official Canon Drivers and Software

Canon USA:DRIVER & DOWNLOADS

After downloading is finished, unplug the USB and run the software that you downloaded.
The software installer will tell you when to connect USB.

Some Canon device may not be Vista compatible and cannot work on Vista.
