Question about Cameras
I received a new camera for an early Christmas present and installed its software (the driver and media gallery it came with) and when I plugged it into my computer via a USB cable the computer simply did not detect that it had been plugged in. I searched for the device but the computer did not pick it up. However, when I accidentally pressed 'PC Cam' it worked perfectly well as a web cam. Can you help? Thanks
The first suggestion may sound silly - but, check if the computer has a usb2.0 port. and on the camera box, minimum system requirements should be posted - comfirm that your computer meets those minimums.
try uninstalling using 'add/remove programs' in your control panel, and reinstall the program that came with the camera. Then restart the computer
