Go to My Computer->C:->Program Files->Vimicro->Vimicro USB PC Camera->vista_xp64. then create desktop shortcut for "amcap", then try using amcap for capturing still images...

this worked for me, i use a4tech p-635 model i think, anyway, i had the same problem but when i read your post, i looked for the solution on my own, and search for the program in my computer, with a touch of luck i just tried "amcap" [amcap is the real icon, not HAmcap, the one that shows in desktop after installing]

i hope this will help you, thanks

    i'm sorry for my previous post, it's a bit wrong,

    go to My Computer->C:->Program Files->Vimicro->Vimicro USB
    PC Camera->vista_xp64->then click "VMSnap3" After that, try using the Amcap icon in your desktop, that should do the trick

    credits to my bro, he solved the problem.

Try these steps..

>> Now press and hold the power button/mode button for 2-5 seconds .. then release
>> Now insert the batteries and see if it works now.
Please let me know if this works.

Appreviation keys

Are you sure there not funtion Keys?
Normaly you have to hold a function Key while pressing them. Also try reloading the chipset drivers and see if that helps.

Can't take pictures

Check your batteries, they may be inserted the wrong way, if not, then just press the button on the back of the camera ONCE to power it up. Then press the shutter button. the number readout on back should show one less number than it did before. You have taken a photo. You also need software that works.

Look at the little display on the back. Keep pressing the small silver mode button on the back until it has CA in the screen. Press the button you take photos with once, the CA will start flashing, press the button you take photos with again (within 5 seconds of the flashing starting).

If it has worked the number of photos available will have gone back to the maximum possible for the settings you have selected which will be 26, 52, 104 (04) or 208 (08).
