PC cannot detect camera

Right click on "my computer" go to "manage" select "Device manager " there you will see the unknown device option then uninstall it and then on top you will see the magnifying tool which searches for new hardware click it now it will detect your camera and install the drivers automatically if it is plug and play device. If not install the drivers from cd that you got with your camera .this will work 100%.

Pc cannot detect the plug and play a4tech webcam

Disconnect the camera from the computer and install the software program. When the program asks for the camera to be connected to the USB port, Then do so and finish the installation and it should work. Here is some info that will help you in setting up Skype or Yahoo messenger.

Normal 0 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.

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
