I have a Logitech QuickCam for Notebooks and my friend is using a Microsoft cam. I can see her and hear her and she can hear me, but she can not see me. We're both using Windows Live and she's been trying...

There are numerous reasons why this may be occuring. The first thing I would recommend is that you try to connect with another person using Windows Live and check if they can see you. Its surprisingly common that the assumption is that the issue is with your hardware/software, but consider that it may be a setting on your friend's computer not allowing her to see you. Could be a very simple fix!

If that doesn't work, ensure that your operating software is up to date and log on to Logitech's website and see if there are any updates for your specific quickcam.

Hope this helps!

Check your camera in the QuickCam software. If your camera works properly in the QuickCam software, then this issue is specific to Yahoo Messenger.
Make sure you have the correct version of the Messenger installed for your OS. Also make sure that the camera driver is the correct driver for your OS.

If the issue persists, then I'm afraid you'll have to contact Yahoo Messenger support for a resolution.

Windows Live Messenger Does not see Logitech Quickcam Pro 5000

I really don't know about this but I'll try to help! Do you still have your webcam installation disk? If so, try un-installing your webcam, then install it again. If this doesn't work then I'm soory and ask another expert!

Haveing trouble installing logitech quick cam onto my comuptor thats running windows vista

This problem was caused by a compatibility issue between Windows Vista and Logitech QuickCam Messenger.
Logitech QuickCam Messenger was created by Logitech, Inc..
To search for similar devices that are compatible with this version of Windows, visit the Windows Vista Hardware Compatibility List website online.
However, it’s not totally out of hope for owner of Logitech QuickCam Messenger who has upgraded to Windows Vista. The following hack will use Windows XP driver (a common trick to use non Vista compliant device) to install the webcam in Vista:
  1. Download QuickCam 8.4.8 with driver for WinXP.
  2. Install WinRAR if not already installed yet.
  3. Open the setup installer qc848enu.exe and unpack its contents to a folder. Alternatively, right click on qc848enu.exe and select “Extract to qc848enu\” option.
  4. Insert or plug in the Logitech QuickCam Messenger to a USB port if not already done so.
  5. An “Driver Software Installation” icon in systray (notification area) should appear, which will pop up detailed message if click. It should fail, and “Add Hardware Wizard” dialog window will appear. Choose to install the driver manually by instructing the Wizard to locate and look for the web cam driver inside the Drivers folder under the unpacked folder of the qc848enu.exe setup program. You can use browser button to select the folder.
  6. Windows Vista should grab the XP driver and install it properly.
  7. Download the latest version (10.5.1) of Vista compliant QuickCam software from Logitech to install the software on Vista.
  8. Run the setup (qc1051enu) normally. You may need to skip the detection of webcam near the end of installation process.
Voila, you can now use the Logitech webcam to capture images or use it in conjunction with video chat in IM programs such as Windows Live (MSN) Messenger, AIM Messenger, Yahoo! Messenger, Skype or run Logitech VideoCall.

i hope thist post can solve your problem

Bob P,
I have Logitech Quick Cam STX not exactly what you have but I think close. I got it to work with Messenger. I have made it through the installation. Not sure what I did to make it work.
I would assume it can be done. If you think it would help to compare our settings some how or for me to help in some other way please let me know. I will be online lots during the day next week as I am not working next week.

Good luck.
