All new computer accessories and peripherals come with drivers that need to be installed onto your PC or Computer before use.

Please locate the CD and try to install it first.

Goodluck...

You need to find out what support software you need to download in addition to the Enter software
I run a Logitech and need Microsoft DirectX 10 to support it

Download this diagnostic software, plug in your webcam and see what it finds - Ignore the first Alert - I always get that

Plug and play webcam wont work on yahoo...


Once your webcam is working on your computer,you can configure it to Yahoo Messenger.
Its good practice to disconnect and re-connect your webcam before you start - if you have been using it elsewhere the Yahoo software may have difficulty in locating it. Mine, I just unplug it from the USB and plug it back in, if yours is integral with the computer you will have to re-start the computer, unless the software has a feature for this.
Of all the chat programs, Yahoo is the most painful software to set up but if you follow these instructions you should be ok.

INTERNET CONNECTION
Webcam connected
Open messenger - on top toolbar. Left click ( > ) Messenger > Preferences > Connection - Select 'no proxies' or 'connect direct to the internet' depending on the version of messenger you have
make sure your internet connection and country are correct in the lower two boxes > Apply > OK

TESTING
> Messenger > My webcam - the warning panel will launch, click 'OK' and your webcam will start. You should be rewarded at this stage with your happy smiling face.

DEFAULT
With webcam still running > Messenger > Preferences > Webcam > Camera Source - set your webcam as default using dropbox. > Camera Settings - adjust settings to suit. > Apply > OK
Take a note of any additional software, if you have multiple choice for Camera Source, you may wish to uninstall any redundant webcam software later to prevent conflicts

PERMISSION OPTIONS
> Messenger > Preferences > Webcam - make your selections ( who you will allow to view you) > Apply > OK

IN USE
When you are both on line and wish to show your webcam > Actions > 'Invite to view my webcam'. This will launch an invitation on your contacts screen when they 'Accept' your webcam broadcast will start- There can be considerable time lag ( 1 minute) before they see you, so dont be too impatient ( You can check the status on the bottom left of your webcam panel. You can 'drag and drop' the frame to a convenient location by grabbing the top border.
There is a shortcut ( webcam icon ) down by your pic as well
Your contacts needs to configure their connection the same as above or they may get a "webcam not connected" message

If you complete the above and still have problems - check to see if your cam is compatible with Yahoo

YAHOO SPECIFICATION

I need the drivers for a ezonics web cam numbe IV?


If you can live without all the fancy background stuff that comes with some webcams, it is true that Windows (XP) has generic drivers that will work with any USB connected webcam. A GREAT program that I found on the web to use with my cheap, generic, sent from Hong Kong, bought on eBay, LED lit webcam, is called YAWCAM. (Yet Another Webcam software. Goggle that in your browser. It is FREE and gives much control to your cam. If this has been helpful, please rate me accordingly. Thanks and good luck.
