Logitech quickcam messenger mic and audio problems

I hope that someone can help me before I go completely mad with this problem.
I have recently bought a quickcam messenger and my contacts cannot hear me and I cannot hear them. Video is all ok.
I have been through the audio set up several times now and all appears to work but as soon as I make a call all the audio settings go to grey out and no audio is available. I think I did get a very quick glance at a box on screen saying something about bandwidth but it didnot stay on screen longenough for me to get the whole message.
I would be very grateful if you could give me some tips on correcting this problem.

Thank you.

Re: logitech quickcam messenger mic and audio problems

Lorne, you may have a driver issue of some type. Look in your Device Manager/System or simply Device Manager on Vista and verify that there are no yellow exclamation or question marks beside any of the audio drivers before, during, and after any attempts at calling. check the same for all the drivers. If this gives you no indications at all, and you know beyond a shadow of a doubt that all other audio functions are working correctly on your computer, then the only real suggestion I could give is to attempt a re-installation of the software that is giving you this problem. However when you de-install the affected software, also removed the folder entirely from the system using Windows Explorer as there may be a setting left in the folder that may be causing this issue and could affect your next installation.

QuickCam mic doesn't work

I read another post that said to go to Logitech itself for up-dates. This I did......downloaded all new drivers, etc. (the disc that comes with the cam must be out of date !). Then when that was done, I went back on Skype and where you do a 'voice test' I was able to this time around to "choose" my webcam - this was not coming up before at all. So in doing that it activated the mic on the webcam and all was OK. We seniors are supposed to be savvy with the forever changing world of electronic devices today! (LOL)

It appears that your memory is not enough to function when adding the camera. Suggest you check to see how much memory your computer has installed. Hope this helps. Bud

Built in Microphone doesn't work in AIM, Windows Live Messanger

You would be surprised at how many people don't realize that each application has it's own configuration screen.

It's not the end-users fault - like you said... the instructions could be a BIT more clear.
