There is a utility bar that you can install that lets you change the default application folder:

** 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 - 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

Why do not detected my web ***

There are several causes to camera not detected error. Are you sure your camera is installed at all?
Let's see because we have to uninstall it anyway: Start>Control Panel>Uninstall a Program
See if your camera is in the list
  • If yes: click on your camera name in the list and then click Uninstall/Change. When done, restart your computer.
    Please, make sure your camera model is supported by your Operating System:
    1. See which is your Operating System: Start>double click Computer>Properties and the first in the list is "Windows Edition" under which you can see which is your your Operating System.
    (Also run Windows Update/System Update which u can find by typing one of those into Start search box+Enter. If any updates available, install them and restart computer.)
    2. See your camera System Requirements: go to your camera's manufacturer's website, Click Products, choose your product and model, and they see your camera System Requirements. Which Operating Programs your camera works with? Do you use one of those?
    • If yes, then your camera can work with your Operating system and you do not have to change it.
    • If not, then your camera cannot work with your Operating System. Sometimes it works if we run update camera driver (only after installing the camera): Start>right click Computer>Manage>Device Manager and find your camera in the list, right click on it, click Update. When update done, and if updated, restart your computer. Go to Installing a Webcam.
  • If you do not find your camera in Control Panel>Uninstall a Program, then your camera is not installed on your computer. Go to Installing a Webcam.
  • Installing a Webcam: Insert camera driver CD, plug your camera if prompted, run Driver icon from the CD, Continue/Allow, and finish installing. Unplug your camera and restart your computer. I would also recommend checking for camera driver update (see above). When update finished, and installed updates, then restart your computer.

Sony vaio tz21wn built in camera not working my operating system windows 7,can u help:}

Once you have your camera, you then have a choice to make; whether to install the software and drivers that comes with the camera or not. A driver is a special piece of software that allows your computer to communicate with the camera. Many of the newer cameras are UVC, (Universal Video Class) compatible. This means the camera can use standard drivers which are built-in to your operating system (Windows, Mac OS, and Linux) and you don't have to install the drivers that come with the camera. However, some features of the camera may not work without the drivers that come with it. Which features work, depends on the camera. For example, some of my auto focuses cameras won't auto focus using the UVC driver, others will. Some cameras have various resolutions that aren't available without installing the drivers that come with it.

Some time it would be work or not. So install your web cam driver is the best way to get all the features.

I have cannot get my camera to work on my computer. the mic works fine the other party does not receive picture of my talking


You need to install the camera software BEFORE connecting the camera USB cable, or Windows will install its default drivers.
Please try disconnecting the camera, eventually removing the camera from the installed devices list in control panel, then reinstalling the camera.

I need a Vista driver for the jl2005a toy camera

Install the 2000/XP drivers that come with the camera. I've just installed these, from CD, on a Vista laptop. Rebooted ... then connected the camera ... and it works! :-)
The "PCCam" app that's installed works and the camera works with Skype, too.

Camera won't connect

I had the same problem. The driver did not install correctly. I then connected the camera without the memory card in, and the driver installed correctly. Subsequent connections of camera with memory card installed, worked fine.

Connection between camera and computer

What operating system are you using? Is you camera connected via USB? Have you tried using another USB port? Did you make sure to install the software before plugging in your camera?

Generally if you are running Windows 98, you will need to reboot after installing the software to even have a chance of the camera being recognized correctly.

If you are running Windows 2000, XP or Vista, the camera should be recognized and a driver installed or searched for from the CD software you installed before plugging in the camera.

Sometimes if you plug in the camera first without installing the software, the PC finds a new device with no driver. You can see this by going to Control Panel -> System -> Hardware -> Device Manager and you should see and exclamation on a device in the list. You need to remove this item and reboot your PC.

Now install the software first and when the install is done, then plug in your camera. Generally this works out pretty well.

Please help me

When you say 'It keeps saying that the camera is marked for deletion.', where are you getting this message from? Check device manager to see if you can remove the device successfully.
Do you have admin priveleges to install on your work system? If not, the device drivers may not be properly installed.If you have XP at work, uninstall the Kodak software, then try connecting the device. You can see the camera as a mounted volume through the system drivers.
You can install just the EasyShare software, not requiring the camera drivers, if you choose to, and the camera will still mount successfully.
Good luck!
