Most likely the Windows 7 default webcam driver is not compatible with that webcam model. You can see if the manufacturer has a Window s7 driver for it, or try using a driver finder program to locate the right driver for your webcam and Windows 7.

Can't get it to work


Try uninstalling the software and removing the camera from the usb port. Reinstall the software and reconnect the cam in a different usb port. If still not working try in a different pc to make sure the camera does not have a fault. If it works in another pc then the camera is not compatable as can happen on some pc's and you will have to try a different make of camera.
