Follow the instructions below and it will work.

Disconnect the Camera from the USB port and reinstall the CD or Downloaded software program.

When the program asks you to connect the camera to the USB port, do so and it should work.

Then to use it on the Web, do this.
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 (http://www.skype.com/intl/en-gb/download/skype/windows/beta/downloading/) 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 video 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 be able to see and her to you.

B. Yahoo Setup:

After downloading and installing Yahoo Messenger (http://www.soft32.com/download_30.html ) 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: Your audio and video should 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.

D. AIM (AOL) Messenger

1. On the VIM sign-in window click on Edit.
2. Then click on Settings Enhanced IM.
3. Next click on Enhanced IM.
4. Then click on Audio Video.
5. The Audio and Video portion has drop downs so you can select the proper audio card and video camera installed in you computer.
The Audi Video drop downs are
Microphone
Speaker
Camera

Adjust Your Audio and Video Settings:
In order to adjust your audio and video settings, please follow the steps given below:
1. Click the Audio and Video Settings button directly below the My Buddy or My Camera window. If you are currently participating in an AOL Live Video IM session, a message will display: You must disconnect the current AOL Live Video IM conversation before running setup. Would you like to disconnect now? Click the Yes button.
2. The Audio and Video Tuning Wizard will appear to help you verify that your camera, speakers and microphone are working properly. Follow the on-screen prompts.
Notes:
· The first time you use AOL Live Video IM, a message will display: Would you like to first check your audio and video settings? Click the Yes button. The Audio and Video Tuning Wizard will appear to help you verify that your camera, speakers and microphone are working properly. Follow the on-screen prompts.
· images in AOL Live Video IM may appear reversed, or as a mirror image (text may appear backwards) when you look at your own camera feed or at the picture-in-picture (PIP) display.
After making the settings your ready for a chat and video talk with your Family and Friends.

After you get your camera installed properly, DO NOT unplug it from the USB port as it will cause
the drivers to be corrupt and render the camera unusable till reinstalled it properly.
Hope this helps. Bud

You need to install (1) the webcam driver (from the laptop manufacturer's website), and (2) the webcam software. If your laptop manufacturer does not provide the webcam software, then you can use manycam.com's webcam software.

Hey i have camera. but my cd isnot working too install tht softwear wht can i do can i downlowed softwear from here ?


I researched your question and here is the link to download the drivers and software you need either click the link or copy and paste it into your web browser:

http://www.microsoft.com/hardware/download/download.aspx?category=ICE

My suggestion is download the software first and install it on your computer, it may prompt you at some point to plug in your web cam during the install but don't plug into your computer until the software prompts you or until the software installs other wise your computer will not recognize it correctly. Once the software installs (if it doesn't prompt you to plug it in) then plug it in. A window will pop up that new drivers or a device is being installed. Once this completes reboot (restart) your computer and you are now ready to use your web cam.

I hope this helps you out if it does please leave me some positive feedback.

How to fix my web cam


hi..
The very first step is of course to check your webcam connection.Most webcams use the USB port to connect to the PC, so check if yourUSB cable is properly plugged. For build-in webcams this steps does ofcourse not apply. Many new laptops have a build-in webcam. Also tryconnecting your webcam directly to your PC instead of through a USB hub(if you are using one).

The next thing is to do is to check your Windows Device Manager and see if the hardware is recognized and installed properly.

It might be that the hardware is recognized as a camera, but theright drivers are not installed. The yellow explanation mark willindicate a problem.

If the device is not recognized in Windows XP, it will be listed under Other Devices.

In either case you can try to update the drivers. Right-click the device, and in the popup menu select Update Driver Software. Then follow the instructions on screen, but make sure you allow Windows to search the web for updated drivers.
In case no driver for the webcam can be found, you can try a third party driver scanning program that scans your PC for installed hardware and allows you to install missing drivers.

If this fails, the next step would be to uninstall the software that came with your webcam. Use the Add or Remove Programs feature in the Control Panel. If that does not work you can use a third party uninstaller.

After uninstalling the software, restart your PC and then reinstallthe webcam software. In most cases this will solve the problems.Depending on the software, you might need to unplug your webcam duringthe software installation.
If the drivers and webcam software are correctly installed, and youstill cannot see any video, there can be a problem with the programsettings. Most chat and meeting software have a configuration option toselect the video source for the webcam feature. If you have multipledevices that qualify for video, you might need to select your webcamdevice as the source for the webcam feature in that program.

Some webcams and programs require additional software, although thatshould be installed with the webcam if things are right. But is doesnot harm to check if your Java, Flash and Quicktime software are installed and up to date.

Lastly, if your webcam’s image is not sharp, check to see if it hasa focus ring. A blurry image can sometimes simply mean the webcam isnot in focus. Adjusting the focus through the ring can solve thatproblem....

Web cam problem


This could simply be a driver issue. Just go to your laptop manufacturer's website and download the latest driver for the webcam of your laptop's model. This usually comes with a software of its own that you can use with your webcam.
