That's a shame. Does it not read CDs or not recognized in BIOS or Wirndows? Please elaborate.

    Is it new? Has it worked before? What Windows version are you using? XP, Vista?

    Try removing it from Device Manager, then reboot the Computer. Let it re-discover the cam and install the drivers. If this doesn't work, try looking for updated drivers and download accordingly. If that doesn't fix it, check the 'Permissions' for it. Sometimes. Vista prompts user on certain things to 'Run as Administrator'. I use Vista and it's never given me any issues with hardware, besides the required hardware upgrades due to non-comaptibility. Is is a USB camera? Try it in another USB port, or test the USB ports with other USB devices.

Acer orbi cam not working

Wow..i've posted many answers to the Orbi Cam...

I will repost the urls for you...Being an Acer owner, I know how frustrating it is getting this camera to work.

First of all, uninstall any drivers you currently have for that orbi cam.
Secondly, visit this site and install

Camera Bison Driver ver. 5.0

Once you have downloaded that specific driver, extract it, and reboot. Let me know if this works for you ...if not we can install the Orbi Cam driver as well, from the same site..

Good Luck
