Unable to detect webcam

I installed the software that was included with the webcam and followed the instructions. When it instructs me to connect the camera for detections the computer would not detect the webcam in any of the USB connections available on my computer. I also tried to uninstall and reinstall the driver software. The other option that I tried was to get on the manufactor's website and download the software available for the webcam. I am running out of options of getting the webcam to work.

Re: unable to detect webcam

Try looking in device manager. If its there with a yellow -exclamation mark there you won't be able to install at all. Just delete (uninstall THAT) then try to plug it in a port.

  1. Logitech webcams follow a simple process for installation, requiring you to follow the instructions that appear on your monitor. During installation, you must see to it that you have the appropriate requirements. Install the webcam software by inserting the CD into the optical drive of the computer before you plug the webcam into an open USB port. The software should then be recognized, followed by prompts and instructions flashed on the screen. If there are no problems encountered, the process of installation should proceed smoothly. Reboot your computer when prompted.
  2. Logitech Webcam Basics
  3. Upon purchase, you must make sure that you have the manual and other relevant documentation accompanying the webcam. Make sure that the webcam is free of damages or defects.

    Adjust the settings of the webcam to produce better image quality. Your manual should help you modify the settings and explain in detail how to check whether the gadget is able to capture images and videos. Using different applications like instant messaging and videoconferencing, evaluate the quality that the webcam is generating. Finally, note that the performance of your webcam varies depending on the Internet connection that you are using.
  4. Troubleshooting
  5. If the installation turns out to be unsuccessful, the first thing you must do is to verify that the webcam is functioning properly. Unplug the webcam from the USB port and restart your computer. Plug the gadget back in to make sure that it can be identified by the computer. Let the system detect the software, and then reinstall the webcam driver.

    If this does not work, the problem may be on the software or driver of the webcam. In cases like this, your option is to find or download a driver that is compatible with your Logitech webcam. Visit the website of the webcam manufacturer and download the appropriate and latest driver required for the installation of the gadget. If the driver that you need is not available in the manufacturer's website, you can look for it in other websites that offer free download able drivers. Websites include Driver and

    After downloading, reinstall the webcam driver to see if it works. If after a successful download the webcam still malfunctions, the webcam itself may need to be replaced.

How to install webcam

Following Step to Connect Webcam:-
1. Read the installation instructions completely before attempting to install the camera. Although this may seem tedious and unnecessary, it can save time and headaches in the long run.
2. Back up the computer's hard drive just to be safe. This will allow for a speedy recovery should the installation mess up the computer.
3. Install the webcam software. Before deciding to install the disc that came with the camera, check the Internet for an updated version of the software and download that if available.
4. Plug in the webcam. The software should give a prompt at the appropriate time. Cameras are usually installed with a USB cable. If installed correctly, the computer will acknowledge so by popping up a message saying it can see the new device.
5. Download an instant message program if using the web camera for chatting. Some free IM download programs include Yahoo Messenger, AOL Instant Messenger and Apple iChat.
