Question about Microsoft Life Cam Vx-5000 Webcam
Check your firewall and add the cam as an exception.
what operating system are you using?
if your using vista make sure your driver is searched for by the hardware manager, unless you have a vista driver.
it sounds to me like the windows firewall is keeping the cam from communicating outside.
here is a link to a driver Life Cam Driver
Also, make sure your plugged into a usb 2.0 port.
Good Luck and Thanks for using FixYa
