Re: Orbicam Problem

** Note ** When the My Pictures or Pictures folder gets full, camera will not work - Cut and Paste all pictures in that
folder to another folder and restart Orbicam program.

If that does not work then do this:

Start - Programs - look for Acer Empowering Technology then Acer E-Recovery - The look at the bottom and you will
"Backup", "Burn disk" and Restore" choose Restore - choose Apps and Drivers at the bottom of Restore tab (it will say
extracting) - once extracted - click Install or Guides and Manuals if needing Orbicam instructions - click Vista or (XP) on the left - click Drivers - click Camera or CCD - on the
right side of the screen, then look for Bison driver or (or your model which can be found in device manager - control panel - system - device manager - Imaging devices) you have then click a phrase that has something like "Install now", follow on screen instructions. Then repeat steps above and instead of driver choose Bison (or your model which can be found in device manager - control panel - system - device manager - Imaging devices) Utility

Seeing it used to work, have you tried doing a System Restore? If you can remember when this started happening, you may be in luck. Just hold down your Windows key (usually between the CTRL and ALT keys on your keyboard) and hit the PAUSE-BREAK key. Then, click on START | PROGRAMS | ACCESSORIES | SYSTEM TOOLS and choose System Restore. If you have a restore point around or before the date this problem happened, click on it and let it go through its steps. Try that.

Ready for this, goto to start>my pictures and remove all images from that folder except for the samples folder, just create another folder in your documents for these images.

Now start the webcam up again.

Sounds stupid but it works.

Acer 5630 orbicam

press ctrl + alt + del one after the other but holding them down in that order, check what programs may be running or using it, if you see what is using it, go to run (in start menue), type services.msc hit enter then look for that program and disable it, that way it wont be able to use it again.

Acer orbicam

There are two software entities involved – the camera Drivers and the OrbiCam application itself – and BOTH need replacing/updating to fix this problem.
The new driver and a new version of webcam application (below) seem to fix the issue.
The correct files to download are:
Acer Orbicam driver (Bison)
Acer Orbicam Bison utility

These can be found here under the MS Windows Vista drop down menu:
In order to fix the problem, you must download and install them both to make the Orbicam work correctly.

1. remove the installed OrbiCam application and reboot if required;
2. install the new driver (preferably with the “driver update” wizard from Device Manager)
3. update the Orbicam application

After this, the webcam should function properly, even if the original Orbicam icon disappears.
To check everything is working OK run LiveCa07.exe or BisonM07.exe that are located in the c:\windows\bisonxxx\ folder or simply run Messenger
