Normal 0 Did you install the software with the camera connected to the computer? Disconnect the camera from the USB port and reinstall the software. When the program asks you to connect the camera, do so, and it should work. Hope this is of some help. Bud

Below is info for setting up Audio & Video to chat on line after you install , either Skype or a messenger program.


Web Camera’s have to be setup on the program they are to be used with. Just installing the camera on your computer does not set it up to broadcast on messengers or Skype.

Each program has Options that have to be setup in order for the Audio and Video to function properly.

A. Skype Setup:

After downloading and installing Skype set it up as follows:

  1. Go to TOOLS, then OPTIONS, and click on Audio Settings and set the Microphone and Speakers to the computer Audio Card.
  2. Then click on the Video Settings.
  3. The camera if installed properly will come up and show a picture.
  4. Then on the bottom of the page click on Save.

The camera and audio should function properly. Your friends and Family will now see and talk to you.

B. Yahoo Setup:

After downloading and installing Yahoo Messenger set it up as follows:

  1. Go to Messenger at the top left and click on it.
  2. Next go down to Preferences and click on it.
  3. Next Calling and Devices on the right and set the Microphone and Speakers to the computer Audio Card.
  4. Next go to the Test Audio section and (in blue writing) click on “Open the call setup assistant” and follow the instructions on the left window.

C. Windows Live Messenger:

  1. After you start Windows Live Messenger, expand the view by clicking on the square on top left next to the red X.
  2. Then on the Windows Live messenger window on the right side, click on “ “Show Menus.” And then click on “Show the Menu Bar”.
  3. Next go to the Menu Bar on right side, click on “ “Action.”
  4. Go to “TOOLS” and click “Audio and Video Setting” and follow the instructions.
NOTE: You audio and video shoud work. Enjoy.

When done both the Audio and Video will function properly so you can chat and see family or friends you are connected to.
Hope this helps. Bud

How do I install the ds 126071 0n my laptop?


Although the manual does not show how to connect to a computer, the system map shows how to use a mini USB cable to connect the camera to a PC. But before the camera will communicate with any PC or Laptop, it needs software.

From the Canon USA website you still can download the Zoombrowser EX software for free. It used to be the EOS Digital solution disk and the ArcSoft PhotoStudio Disk.
Before connecting the camera, install the software. Then when software (and driver) are installed, when connecting the camera, the software will start up and ask what to do. Like import the pictures to the computer.

Connection error


In order of likelihood:

1. Make sure your camera is charged (battery indicator good). Some cams can't transfer pics if battery is low.

2. Try a different USB port. Some cameras need a powered port. USB ports on the REAR of a PC usually provide more power than ones on the front, due to the way they are wired to the motherboard inside.

3. You may need to UNinstall the camera software and reboot your computer. Try plugging in your camera then; I rarely install the crappy software that comes with a camera (Windows should recognize most cameras right away). However, if all above fails, visit the camera manufacturer website for the latest software updates or assistance. I think it is:

4. Your USB cable may be defective; borrow one from a friend (make sure the ends are exactly the same), or try BigLots or BestBuy.

Samsung Camera wb500 usb device not recognized


Consider 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.

My web cam doesnt work and i want to know how to fix it


The HP DV seriews laptops use Cyberlink's Youcam software. If the software has been installed and setup, the camera will automatically come on when the software starts. If the camera does not come up, then there could be several issues with it. One being the camera has failed, two, most common is that the connecting cable between the camera and motherboard has failed. It fails because it passes through the right hinge and at times gets pulled or stressed over time. Third is the software is corrupt and needs to be reinstalled, or the operating system was upgraded and a new updated driver has not been updated. Below is the link to the cyberlink Youcam software, jusr scroll down near the bottom of the page and you will see the links.

Same problem


You are restarting your computer after install right.
You should be installing the software with out the camera connected9or the usb cable) shutting computer down/ connecting the camera and cable , and then restarting the system.
If you are doing it any other way the computer will not recognize the camera......you are confusing the system

Problem connecting to PC


Delete the program. Go to Program files and delete any remaining trace files. Empty recycle bin. Reboot PC. Re-install CD program. If this fails to rectify problem then check on their website for any updates to help the program and download them. Reboot. If this fails then check if you have any other editing suite programs that could interfere or supercede the program you're using when connecting your camera. If this fails, don't bother using the software on the CD at all as your PC should pick up your camera files via the USB as long as it has been properly updated. Then use Photoshop/or another program to edit your pics.

Check the connecting usb cable that connects the camera with computer. Excessive usage causes cables breakages.
  1. Replace the usb cable with a new one available at a very low cost in market.
  2. Try other Usb ports on computer to plug in the camera
Hope it works. If not contact me again

My Fujifilm digital camera is connected to my computer, but the removable disk does not appear when I open "My Computer" in Windows. I have a FinePix camera and have installed the software.


If the removable disk does not appear when you open "My Computer" in Windows, it is possible that the USB drivers are not installed correctly. Update to the latest version of FinePix Viewer (including the USB drivers). To update FinePix Viewer, you must have the software from the CD-ROM bundled with the product (Utilities for FinePix) already installed. As an alternative method to updating the software, you can also reinstall the USB drivers. The USB drivers can be reinstalled by installing the software from the CD-ROM again. If the removable disk is still not displayed after the above measures have been taken, check the following: Windows system checks 1. You should be using Windows 98, Windows 98SE, Windows ME, Windows 2000 or Windows XP. 2. The Windows XP USB drivers are supported as standard system drivers but are only compatible with Software for FinePix versions 2.0 or later. If you are using an earlier version of the CD-ROM, an update to FinePix Viewer is required. 3. The software cannot be installed properly from "Scanners and Cameras" in the Control Panel. Digital camera checks 1. Check that the digital camera can play back images on its LCD monitor. 2. On digital cameras with the PC Camera function, select "DSC" as the USB setting. (Refer to the Owner's Manual for your camera for information on specifying the camera settings.)
