Normal 0 Did you install the software with the camera connected to the computer? Disconnect the camera from the USB port and reinstall the software. When the program asks you to connect the camera, do so, and it should work. Hope this is of some help. Bud

Below is info for setting up Audio & Video to chat on line after you install , either Skype or a messenger program.

Web Camera’s have to be setup on the program they are to be used with. Just installing the camera on your computer does not set it up to broadcast on messengers or Skype.

Each program has Options that have to be setup in order for the Audio and Video to function properly.

A. Skype Setup:

After downloading and installing Skype set it up as follows:

  1. Go to TOOLS, then OPTIONS, and click on Audio Settings and set the Microphone and Speakers to the computer Audio Card.
  2. Then click on the Video Settings.
  3. The camera if installed properly will come up and show a picture.
  4. Then on the bottom of the page click on Save.

The camera and audio should function properly. Your friends and Family will now see and talk to you.

B. Yahoo Setup:

After downloading and installing Yahoo Messenger set it up as follows:

  1. Go to Messenger at the top left and click on it.
  2. Next go down to Preferences and click on it.
  3. Next Calling and Devices on the right and set the Microphone and Speakers to the computer Audio Card.
  4. Next go to the Test Audio section and (in blue writing) click on “Open the call setup assistant” and follow the instructions on the left window.

C. Windows Live Messenger:

  1. After you start Windows Live Messenger, expand the view by clicking on the square on top left next to the red X.
  2. Then on the Windows Live messenger window on the right side, click on “ “Show Menus.” And then click on “Show the Menu Bar”.
  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: You audio and video shoud 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.
Hope this helps. Bud

    How make work an extigy with windows 7? It is possible?

    O.K., I solved this problem and got my SoundBlaster Extigy to work with Win 7 (64-bit machine). Here is what to do:

    Easy part:
    1. Search your system for the old USBAUDIO.sys driver:

    2. Copy old USBAUDIO.sys, (d.02-11-2006) to usb or floppy

    Trickypart :

    3. Go to C:\Windows\System32\Drivers
    Rightclick USBAUDIO.sys (d.19-04-2008)> Unlocker >Choose Delete

    4. Copy old USBAUDIO.sys, (d.02-11-2006) from usb or floppy to C:\Windows\System32\Drivers

    5. Reboot.

    6. At reboot, Windows will block the Extigy from starting "because the manufacturer's software was known to cause problems." Go into Device Manager (Right click Start button, Click Control Panel, Click Hardware and Sound, Click Devices Manager (under Devices and Printers section). You should see the Sound Blaster Extigy listed under Sound, video and game controllers

    7. Uninstall the Soundblaster Extigy in Device Manager (right click the device) Uninstall

    8. Close Device Manager

    9. Remove Extigy USB connector from laptop/computer for at least 10 secs. and Turn off Extigy, Sub-woofer, Speakers

    10. Now reconnectthe USB,

    11. Turn on Extigy, Sub-woofer, Speakers.....

    12. Windows will now install the July 13 2009 device driver

    13. Right click on Speaker icon in taskbar....Click Playback Devices...Extigy should appear in the window along with any other playback devices installed on your computer.

    14. Click on Extigy...make it the Default Device

    15. Then, disable the internal speakers (in my case it was RealTech) and any other playback devices.

    16. Right click Extigy, select works!!

    If you don't have the Nov 2, 2006 driver, email me and we'll figure out a way to get it to you.

    Good luck!!
