Its a built in camera so it cant be unplugged unless you open the notebook.

The camera has a "technical" problem in the chip wich it cant be solved with any driver. Accer wont help you or give an explanation about this.

Is the driver fits on Vista? If yes, try this one, remove the usb cable of your orbicam from the pc and then unstall the software and then restart the pc and then reinstall the software [note: do not plug the usb unless it ask you or do not plug it untill the installation finish. after that plugin the usb cord and wait untill the driver install by your pc automatically. Hope it help!

Acer Aspire 9410 series laptop, Built in Orbicam problem


The problem is that another program has gained exclusive access to the camera, it won't be an MS program though, it will be a thrid party program to narrow it down.
To locate it, open up task manager and look at the processes running and end any program like: Printer software, scanner software, any other imaging software...etc

You could also try uninstalling the camera in device manager, leave it connected and reboot the system, windows will automatically detect it again, it may ask for the driver disc again. Then start up the program you want.

Hope this helps....!

Acer orbicam won't work

** Note ** When the My Pictures or Pictures folder gets full, camera will not work - Cut and Paste all pictures in that
folder to another folder and restart Orbicam program.

If that does not work then do this:

Start - Programs - look for Acer Empowering Technology then Acer E-Recovery - The look at the bottom and you will
"Backup", "Burn disk" and Restore" choose Restore - choose Apps and Drivers at the bottom of Restore tab (it will say
extracting) - once extracted - click Install or Guides and Manuals if needing Orbicam instructions - click Vista or (XP) on the left - click Drivers - click Camera or CCD - on the
right side of the screen, then look for Bison driver or (or your model which can be found in device manager - control panel - system - device manager - Imaging devices) you have then click a phrase that has something like "Install now", follow on screen instructions. Then repeat steps above and instead of driver choose Bison (or your model which can be found in device manager - control panel - system - device manager - Imaging devices) Utility

There are two types of driver for the orbicam, Bison and Logitech, so ensure you have the correct one installed, especially if you are running Vista as it's a different driver again, and it's installed a seperate peice of hardware although it's built into the notebook. There are no listing for 5600 drivers so try 5610 they should be the same
