Re: logitech mircrophone

It may be that this person is "messing around" with you, or their speakers are rigged, from my experince, it sounds like your headset is perfectly fine, or your headset microphone switch was toggled on "Off" Msn is just a instant messaging chat, shouldn't have anything to do with your headset.

I have no instructions on how to set up the webcam to my desktop computer. I dont know the serial number nor the model number . the only thing I see on the wires are these numbers p/n b61050-0050 and also...

Hey Dont worry most logitech's are plug and play systems. Meaning you plugit in and windows installs the driver automatically. If you have windows Vista or windows 7, plug it in, then go to windows update and check for new updates. The Driver will be located in an option update. Select it and install it.

Logitech quick cam messenger

Hey guys,

Every review/spec I have read on this cam so far indicates that there is no built in microphone on the Quickcam Express. Here is one of those sites...

If you still have your box that the camera came in, it should tell you for certain if there is a microphone in the product description on the back or side of the box.

Let me know if there is anything else I can do for you, and good luck.

First, be sure to have the latest software from logitech's website, and the latest MSN.

Then perform the following:

Execute the audio and video setup procedure within MSN Messenger 7.5. This procedure will allow you to assign an audio input and audio output device, as well as assign the video device of your choice to work with MSN Messenger.
1. Launch MSN Messenger and select the “Audio and Vide Setup” option from the “Tools” menu.
Figure 1

2. Click “Next to begin the setup process
Figure 2

3. In the “Speaker Setup” window, select the output device you would like to use with MSN Messenger. This step is specific to speakers or headphones. If your speakers or headphone device is connected to your computer, select the device by using the drop down menu provided. You can also set the desired volume level and click “Play Sound” for an audio sample. Once you are comfortable with the your selected options, Click “Next”
Figure 3

4. In the “Microphone Setup” window, select your desired input device from the drop down menu provided. This selection will be specific to a microphone connected to your computer. If your Logitech video camera has a built-in microphone, this option will be presented as “Logitech Mic” with your camera model name in parentheses as shown below. If you have an external headset device connected to your computer which hosts a microphone, select the devices name or model number in the drop down menu. Once your device is selected, adjust the microphone volume level to your preference and click next.
Note: the microphone volume level may need to be tested in order to find a comfortable listening level for you contacts. As a starting point, try setting the level midway and adjust when necessary by re-executing this procedure.
Figure 4

5. In the “Webcam Setup” window, select the video device you would like to use with MSN Messenger. Once selected you should see a display sample in the window provided. You can also click the “Options” button to make camera specific adjustments. Once completed, click the “Finish” button to apply your changes.
Figure 5
6. Once you have completed this process, MSN Messenger should now know the audio input (microphone) audio output (speakers or headphones) and video device (webcam) to use when engaging in an audio and or video conversation.
