Question about Serious Magic Visual Communicator 2 Studio Pro for PC

Similar problem, Serious Magic will not recognize my camera

I've used Serious Magic for at least 5 years without issues using the same webcam. The webcam works in MS Movie Maker but not Serious Magic. Very Frustrating since Serious Magic sold to Adobe and support is no longer available.

I've rebooted several times, reinstalled the SM software and even uninstalled another TV software that i thought might be the cause.

Thanks for any suggestions.

I'm sorry for the difficulties you're experiencing as the i.LINK connection from the Camcorder is not recognized by two different Computers. Since the issue persists with two computers, it seems that the issue is with the Camcorder itself.

I suggest that you try resetting the Camcorder and check if that helps. To reset the Camcorder, please press the reset button behind the LCD screen using a sharp pointed object. Also make sure that the Camcorder is turned ON when pressing the reset button. You can locate the RESET button from the below picture.

If the issue persists after resetting, service may be required. However, please click hear to view the troubleshooting steps recommended by Sony. I have reviewed it and found that you have already performed all these steps. However, please check whether you missed something.

Thanks for understanding. Please let me know if you require any clarifications.

Sounds like a possible driver issue.
Go to Sony's support site and download the latest drivers for your Camera, namely the WebCam Companion software to ensure you have the proper drivers for your integrated webcam.

A restart is usually needed after the installation.
Test the software to ensure you actually get proper video from the webcam after driver installation.
Test it out on Skype if all goes well.

I have a fujifilm finepix j10/j12 digital camera and im tryin to use it as a webcam but my computer wont recognize it.


Many people ask if they can use their digital camera as a webcam. In the early days of digital imaging, it made sense to dual-function a camera because a webcam was a serious investment. However, webcams are now so inexpensive that manufacturers are not considering this functionality important in their digital cameras. In fact even the word 'webcam' creates the impression of bad imaging, so associating this function with a camera actually makes the camera seem 'cheap'.

So, why do so many people ask if they can do this? I believe it's caused by the 'grandfathered camera' problem. Advances in camera design have been so stunning in the last few years that it makes no sense to use an old camera when you could use a new one and get better pictures. But what do you do with the old camera? This is where people start thinking "I wonder if I can use this as a webcam?".

So, can your camera be used as a webcam? Probably not, I've searched the web for your camera the Z10fd and I found no indication that it can be used as a webcam, in fact this fixya answer agrees; but here's how you can tell. Make sure you've installed all the software you can find for your camera, power it up, and plug it in. Windows will tell you if it has a webcam function. If it's a webcam, then it will appear in "My Computer" as a device, right along with all the disk drives. To be sure, go to your control panel and select "Scanners and Cameras". Is your camera listed? If not... it's not a webcam.

In the unlikely event that you have a 'video in' on your computer, and that your camera has a 'video out' then you can follow the instructions on the sony site ("how to use a digital still camera as a webcam"); but most people will not have that yellow 'video in' connection.

Your camera doesn't work as a webcam? No, I thought not. Here's a different suggestion for what to do with that old camera: keep it in a different place. Seriously, keep it in the car, at work, or at the cottage. One day, something interesting will happen there, and you'll be grateful of a camera with ANY resolution, even that old one!

My PC (running Vista) does not see my HP Webcam Deluxe. Why?


Fully, uninstall your drivers from Device Manager...then connect to internet and let the Vista detect the drivers automatically. Normally this is caused by Windows updates.

Win XP sp2 not recognizing gr-d70


I had a similar issue. I had never been able to download video to computer because the computer never recognized the camera. As a last resort, I bought a new firewire cord today -- and my computer recognized the camera as soon as I turned the camera to play! It was four years in the making (I thought there was something wrong with my camera this entire time!), but it was just a cord issue. Now the cord that came with the camera is in the trash, and I can download video. I did buy an (XP) driver for I think $8 online, but I'm not sure whether that really had anything to do with it (I have SP3). I bought it from www.helpdrivers.com, and it was called the JVC / GR-D70U USB Mass Storage Class Driver + G.726 Decoder / Windows 98-98Se-Me-2000-XP, Item# 3021598. Downloaded it from the site. Hope that helps!

Disable standby mode


i have a panasonic. its not the same kind as yours but i was trying to use it as a webcam as well and had the same issue. i read the manuel and it said that it goes in auto standby if its on pause for more than 5 minutes. so i figured id just take the tape out. its not on pause so it wont stand by. i didnt think it would make a difference. but it did. i can use it as a webcam now. hope this helps
