Microsoft LifeCam VX-1000 Webcam Problem

I'm running Windows XP. The camera and software installed fine. When I bring up the camera thru the control panel, the image displayed is great. Here's the problem. When I try to do live video with a messenger program such as AOL IM or MS Messenger, I can see myself in the lower left corner and my brother can see himself on his computer but neither of us can see each other. He doesn't have the problem with anyone else so I have to believe it's me. When I try to establish a video connection with him and he accepts, several seconds later I get an error message that says the connection cannot be made and there may be a firewall problem. I've disabled the router firewall, the Macafee firewall (it comes with Comcast, the ISP) and the Windows XP firewall. I still get the same error message. Any thoughts or suggestions on the problem?

I have a Logitech Quick Cam for Notebooks, and have been trying to use AOL Live Video IM service. Keep getting an error message saying my contact and i are behind different or conflicting firewalls !! I have contacted Logitech who have proved camera working. Contacted McAfee also who ruled out firewall settings. Am using a Netgear router DG834G also, where i have set camera permissions and IP addresses.
I have also disabled both Windows XP and McAfee firewalls to no avail, Help !!!

LifeCam VX-1000 Webcam: I have windows XP. I installed my microsoft VX- 10...

Make sure you have any support software loaded that may be necessary to run your model. For example, I have Logitech and need Directx. Support software is not downloaded with the product but as a standalone item.
Check out the Microsoft support website - fill in the details of your cam and OS and move to the support page for your model.
Look for the readme link and check known issues and breaking news. Look for any information regarding additional software.

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.

Microsoft lifecam 1000

You can download the driver here :-
the camera has a built in microphone,so after a proper installation you should have the video and mic funtioning.
but in your case, the cam doesn't work, so you have to try first uninstall the driver >> unplug the camera USB port >> then make a restart >> plud the camera back into the usb >> and install the drivers again.
