HI,

First unplug your camera from the pc and then download the correct software for your camera from www.logitech.com and then install it(Make sure you do not plug in your camera)
Next give your pc a restart and then plug in the camera and let it scan for drivers.It will detect it.

If you need any more help let me know

Hi,


Here is the things you have to do:

2. Install WinRAR if not already installed yet.

3. Open the setup installer qc848enu.exe and unpack its contents to a folder.
Alternatively, right click on qc848enu.exe and select Extract to qc848enuoption.

4. Insert or plug in the Logitech QuickCam Messenger to a USB port if not already done so.

5. An Driver Software Installationã icon in systray (notification area) should appear, which will pop up detailed message if click. It should fail, and ã¢ï¿½ï¿½Add Hardware Wizardã¢ï¿½ï¿½ dialog window will appear.

Choose to install the driver manually by instructing the Wizard to locate and look for the web cam driver inside the Drivers folder under the unpacked folder of the qc848enu.exe setup program. You can use browser button to select the folder.

6. Windows Vista should grab the XP driver and install it properly.

Having downloaded the file you'd need to extract the files from inside the archive to a folder and then point windows at the folder with the extracted files in it.

You can download software from the link below to do the extraction:
http://www.win-rar.com/download.html

Once installed just double click the .RAR file and drag the files within out to a new folder. Follow the instructions above pointing windows to look for files in your new folder.

Problem with webcam nx pro on vista 64


dear jorma

Ok, I found the procedure to install the webcam correctly under Windows Vista.

1- Download the XP driver from the Creative website
2- With WinRar extract the files to a folder on the desktop (don't warry if the downloaded driver file is .exe)
3- Once extracted the files to the folder, open it and again extract the files from the folder called "Win2KXP.cab" into a new folder
4- Open the extracted folder, and you will find a "Driver" folder.
5- Go back to the main driver folder and extract "Eng.cab" files and place them on the "Driver" folder
5- Open the "Driver" folder and double-clik on the file called "VfwUpd.exe"
6- Now go the Device Manager on the Control Panel
7- Plug your webcam and choose manually where to find drivers.
8- select the "Driver" folder or the main driver folder and your webcam is finally working

Haveing trouble installing logitech quick cam onto my comuptor thats running windows vista


This problem was caused by a compatibility issue between Windows Vista and Logitech QuickCam Messenger.
Logitech QuickCam Messenger was created by Logitech, Inc..
Recommendation
—————-
To search for similar devices that are compatible with this version of Windows, visit the Windows Vista Hardware Compatibility List website online.
However, it’s not totally out of hope for owner of Logitech QuickCam Messenger who has upgraded to Windows Vista. The following hack will use Windows XP driver (a common trick to use non Vista compliant device) to install the webcam in Vista:
  1. Download QuickCam 8.4.8 with driver for WinXP.
  2. Install WinRAR if not already installed yet.
  3. Open the setup installer qc848enu.exe and unpack its contents to a folder. Alternatively, right click on qc848enu.exe and select “Extract to qc848enu\” option.
  4. Insert or plug in the Logitech QuickCam Messenger to a USB port if not already done so.
  5. An “Driver Software Installation” icon in systray (notification area) should appear, which will pop up detailed message if click. It should fail, and “Add Hardware Wizard” dialog window will appear. Choose to install the driver manually by instructing the Wizard to locate and look for the web cam driver inside the Drivers folder under the unpacked folder of the qc848enu.exe setup program. You can use browser button to select the folder.
  6. Windows Vista should grab the XP driver and install it properly.
  7. Download the latest version (10.5.1) of Vista compliant QuickCam software from Logitech to install the software on Vista.
  8. Run the setup (qc1051enu) normally. You may need to skip the detection of webcam near the end of installation process.
Voila, you can now use the Logitech webcam to capture images or use it in conjunction with video chat in IM programs such as Windows Live (MSN) Messenger, AIM Messenger, Yahoo! Messenger, Skype or run Logitech VideoCall.

i hope thist post can solve your problem


thank's

DOWNLOADING CAM


If you have the installation disk you already have the driver. You have to BACKDOOR Vista. Put the disk in the cd drive. Exit the installation then go to my computer or just computer whatever your says. Then right click on the Veo icon. Click on explorer. Then open the drivers folder. Right click and COPY the folder that says winxp on it. Paste it to the desktop. Then plug the cam into the usb port. Now manually in stall the driver. When it ask to find the driver click on browse. Then find the folder you just copied. Then click next. I have the same cam and it worked for me. Hopefully you can figure out how I did it.
