The camera and audio should function properly. Your friends and Family will now be able tosee and her to you.

3. Next go to the Menu Bar on right side, click on “ “Action.”
4. Go to “TOOLS” and click “Audio and Video Setting” and follow the instructions.
NOTE: Your audio and video should work. Enjoy.

When done both the Audio and Video will function properly so you can chat and see family or friends you are connected to.

HI,

Please reinstall the web cam software provided to you with this camera.This will fix the issue.
If reinstalling the webcam software doesn't fix the issue then reinstall the software you use to communicate with your friends(Like yahoo or msn or skype)
If you do not have the webcam drivers/software let me know.

Thank you
Thank you

Mic not working!


Go to logitech's website and look for the latest driver for your microphone:

http://www.logitech.com/en-us/support-downloads

Install it, plug in mic, load audacity/garageband, or any windows recording application, and ensure the mic input on the application is set to the plugged in logitech/labtec mic. Ensure the input volume is set to a level that responds when speaking into mic. Press record to see if it picks up the audio.

Don't think the mic is working on my ds lite. how do i find out if it is or is not working


go into the settings menu of the game you are playing, and if you look around, you should find a mic test. blow into the mic, and if it responds, then your mic is working. if it doesnt, here is a website that you can buy a replacement for about 7 bucks.
