My orbicam doesn't come on how do i get to that info ? I don't even have an icon for it.


First we will create the new folder where the pictures will be moved to:
1. Click on the Start button.
2. Click on Computer
3. Double-click on the C drive
4. Double-click on Users
5. Double-click on your user name
6. Double-click on Desktop.
7. Once you are in the Desktop, right-click on a blank white area (not on an icon) then select Create > New Folder.
8. Call the folder "Picture Backup" or any other significant name. (Do not close the windows since we will need it later) in step 11
Now we will move the pictures from the old folder to the new one:
9. Click on the START button then click on Pictures
10. Click on one picture and then go to Edit > Select All. This will highlight all the files in this folder.
11. Right-click on one of the selected files then select Cut
12. Go back to the folder we created in step 7 and
13. Right-click and paste the contents we Cut from the Pictures folder.
Now, restart your computer and try the OrbiCam application again. This should allow your OrbiCam application to work again.

http://www.acerpanam.com/flex/acerdrivers/bin/drivers.html?CFID=138987&CFTOKEN=95077875

If not working then:

** Note ** When the My Pictures or Pictures folder gets full, camera1.gif 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 - Programs1.gif - look for Acer1.gif Empowering Technology then Acer E-Recovery - The look at the bottom and you will
"Backup1.gif", "Burn disk" and Restore" choose Restore - choose Apps and Drivers at the bottom of Restore tab (it will say

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 http://support.acer-euro.com/drivers/notebook/tm_5610.html
