    I have this same issue, and the solution here does not fix the issue, as windows 2000 is not on the list of operating systems on the drop down box, if it was, i would have already downloaded it! Is there a link to a genuine download for the drivers for windows 2000 for the life cam VX-3000??

    thanks ;)

    Is anyone going to reply to this offering the location where I can download the drivers for the Life Cam VX-3000 for WINDOWS 2000? The guy at the source where I bought it from said all you have to do is email microsoft and they will send you the correct drivers, well I did thast twice, with no reply from Microsoft! I'm not about to pay $55 for MS tech support, that's more than the camera costs!

    Where can I download the VX-3000 drivers for WINDOWS 2000??

    Thanks ;)

    Same here, need 2000 drivers

    Me too, suspect Microsoft can't be bothered to produce Win2K drivers as they like to 'force' us to upgrade so old drivers don't help with the 'master plan'

    I do not own the camera. I can only provide Microsofts own link to a driver. If it doesn't work as the Guest in solution 2 indicates (thanks for the info to that guest) I will quit referencing the page. However the only likely resolution to the issue will come from Microsoft.

In order to open your webcam you have to install Microsoft LifeCam VX-3000 Personal Web Camera driver or software. If already installed just open yahoo messenger latest version and skype, there you can test or try if your installed webcam is working.

Try installing the windows XP driver of your webcam. If it doesn't work, you may have to upgrade your PC's operating system to Windows XP with Service Pack 2. Please reply if this has helped you. Thanks.

Lifecam vx 3000

certain web cams have probs with the drivers you got to mess with it at times like keep it unplugged from the usb and install it or keep it pluged in well installing it i would first try looking at the Manuel to see what they say about that cam or i can give you some updated drivers and if you dont mind me asking what operating system you using with it

i have had a web cam from logitec and it would be a pain to install it would say no drivers no cam and you just got to fit tile with it
