Hmm well here are the directions to follow if you are using XP (as you mentioned at the end of your problem) it may also work when used with vista.
Press ‘Alt + F10' to start eRecovery Management.
Enter default password of 6 zero's. Example: 000000 (Note: if this default password does not work, then a different password has taken its place. Acer is not responsible for any forgotten or misplaced passwords.)
Select ‘Recovery Actions' and click ‘Next'
Select ‘Reinstall Applications/drivers' and click ‘Next'
On the left hand side of the newly opened window select the following: Windows XP ? Driver ?Camera
On the right side of the same window, click ‘Install Camera Driver Now'
The unit will reboot after the installation is complete.
Acer Orbi Cam...yes, there have been many problems with this little cam, but below is the URL for you to copy and paste, then choose the driver......Orbi Cam http://support.acer-euro.com/index.html
Then choose driver downloads Choose your make and model, it will take you to the driver download pull down menu, choose your Operating system , either XP or Vista, then choose the Orbi Cam option. Download the driver, and install... Reboot your computer and try your Orbi..
unfortunately there could be the possibility that your acer cam is not compatible with vista.. vista is a tricky os right now so it is particular on devices and compatability issues--i was an early adoptor and it isn't fun.. i would check out logitech cams, they seem to work well but look for the vista compatible.. you may want to visit your acer website and see if there are any update or downloads for current users that now have vista.. hope this helps..
Start - Programs - look for Acer Empowering technology Acer E-recovery - choose Restore - choose Apps and Drivers at the bottom of Restore tab (it will say extracting) - once extracted - click Install - click Vista on the left - click Drivers - click Camera or CCD - on the right side of the screen, click a phrase that has something like "Install now", follow on screen instructions.
** 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.
