Giga ware 2.0 webcam

I just bought a gigaware 2.0 webcam for chating online. It works well for the security camera function so I know that it is working. However, it will not work for chatting. My freinds can not see my end of the chat. I can not see it either when I go into the ''my webcam funtion'' of yahoo messenger. The software cd that came with it is arc soft. It gives me the option to use yahoo messenger. That is what I already use. I have tried every thing that I can think of with no results. I have done all of the trouble shooting that yahoo messenger offers. Please help me!!!!!!!!
