Assuming that you don't have the driver software, go to the site and download the driver for the operating system you have and install it as instructed below.

Copy this site and paste it to your web browser address bar and then hit ENTER.

Enter the Model number and in the "Search a Model."
Then under " Product Support", click on "Software & Drivers", when the next window comes up, Select your operating system and click on the Download.
Next download the driver for your camera and install it as below.

Then foolw these instructions.

Disconnect the Camera from the USB port and reinstall the CD or Downloaded software program.

When the program asks you to connect the camera to the USB port, do so and it should work.

Then to use it on the Web, do this.
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.

Then click on the Video Settings.
The camera, if Installed Properly, it will come up and show a video picture.
Then, on the bottom of the page click save.
The camera and audio should function properly. Your friends and Family will now be able to see and hear you.

B. Yahoo Setup:
After downloading and installing Yahoo Messenger

http://www.soft32.com/download_30.HTML

set it up as follows:
Go to Messenger at the top left and click on it.
Next go down to Preferences and click on it.
Next Calling and Devices on the right and set the Microphone and Speakers to the computer Audio Card.
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:

http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?familyid=d78f2ff1-79ea-4066-8ba0-ddbed94864fc&displaylang=en

After you start Windows Live Messenger, expand the view by clicking on the square on top left next to the red X.
Then on the Windows Live messenger window on the right side, click on " "Show Menus." And then click on "Show the Menu Bar".
Next go to the Menu Bar on right side, click on " "Action."
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.

D. AIM (AOL) Messenger:

http://dashboard.aim.com/aim

On the VIM sign-in window, click on Edit.
Then click on Settings Enhanced IM.
Next click on Enhanced IM.
Then click on Audio Video.
The Audio and Video portion has drop downs so you can select the proper audio card and video camera installed in you computer.
The Audi Video drop downs are
Microphone
Speaker
Camera
The audio and camera should function now.
Additional information to use with VIM settings.
Adjust Your Audio and Video Settings:
In order to adjust your audio and video settings, please follow the steps given below:
1. Click the Audio and Video Settings button directly below the My Buddy or My Camera window. If you are currently
Participating in an AOL Live Video IM session, a message will display: You must disconnect the current AOL Live Video IM
conversation before running setup. Would you like to disconnect now? Click the Yes button.
2. The Audio and Video Tuning Wizard will appear to help you verify that your camera, speakers and microphone are working
Properly. Follow the on-screen prompts.
Notes:
The first time you use AOL Live Video IM, a message will display: Would you like to first check your audio and video settings? Click the Yes button.
The Audio and Video Tuning Wizard will appear to help you verify that your camera, speakers and microphone are working properly.
Follow the on-screen prompts.
images in AOL Live Video IM may appear reversed, or as a mirror image (text may appear backwards) when you look at your own camera feed or at the
Picture-in-picture (PIP) display.
After making the settings your ready for a chat and video talk with your Family and Friends. Hope this helps. Bud

Hello I bought a microphone Philips SBC MD 110,but I don't know to use it on my pc. Its recognized like a device but dthere is no sound.I have windowsm vista OS,please can someone tell me how can i conecct...


Hi, There is never any driver needed when connecting a microphone to your pc or laptop.
Simply connect the 3.5mm jack to the microphone input on the soundcard of your pc.
Check the settings in the volume control settings at:"Playback" when using the microphone during a live presentation etc."Recording" when making a sound recording or using VOIP like Skype, MSN etc.

Note: this may vary depending on your operating system..

hope it helps..

Philips SPC900NC How do I get the camera microphone to work through its USB connection


Hi john673,

make sure that the specific driver/software for that camera is installed properly, apparently the audio driver for the microphone is also included on the software packaged with it. If you din't have the drivers, you may try to download it here:

http://www.p4c.philips.com/cgi-bin/dcbint/cpindex.pl?scy=US&slg=AEN&cat=PC_CAMERAS_CA&sct=WEBCAMS_SU&session=20080513045623_121.97.80.100&grp=PC_PRODUCTS_GR&ctn=SPC900NC/27&mid=Link_Software&hlt=Link_Software

if the camera and its drivers are installed properly, you may check the voice recording properties of your pc and try selecting the philips/usb microphone from the drop down box.

hope this helps

Cheers and best regards,
