    I had the old "Pictures in the Pictures folder" problem before, but this is different.

    I think I may have done something to Acer Arcade (thought it was a game thing...)

    But! For some reason the Bison Orbicam isn't even registering. It's there, implanted right above the screen, taunting me, but is not even detected...

    So I redownloaded Acer Arcade. No dice

    I reinstalled Vista, still nothing.

    I think it might be about time for a trip to Staples....

    I'm just about at the end of my proverbial rope here. starting to stress me out.

    If anyone's got any suggestions or info that could help, let me know please!

    Thanks in advance

** 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

I had the same problem, and guess what, I uninstalled the old orbicam, and install it again. And it worked. You can get some help with drivers on http://support.acer-euro.com/drivers/index.html

After my ACER laptop orbicam worked flawlessly for about one year, the orbicam only worked with the MESSENGER program.
I tried downloading new drivers but it still failed in the camera mode. Then, I read about deleting saved pictures on this FIX YA website. I found the directory where just 3 pictures were stored, deleted two pictures, and saved the remaining one in another folder. VOILA! It now works flawlessly again. My thanks to COMPUTER DAVE from BODY SURVER - WA7UGS@MSN.COM.

My orbi cam says it stop working properly and needs update are there free downloads for this function


Sometimes the acer orbicam software will stop working if you have pictures saved in the "my pictures" folder.

Yes this is very weird, but I have seen it happen.

Hi there,

Go to www.acer.co.uk. Home users, sevice and support. The page will redirect you to the Euro page for drivers and downloads. Select your acer pc model then download the drivers corresponding to your orbicam. If you are missing any other drivers (look in device manager on your comp), download those too. You must unzip downloaded drivers and find the installation file to install. This should help.

Acer orbi cam


try to uninstalled the orbicam application and then restart
and installed it again.
FYI, if you don't have the application, you can download from acer website; www.acerpanam.com
There are 3 type of orbicam (bison, suyin and logitech).
i don't know which one is yours, you can try 1 by 1.
make sure you uninstalled when you want to installed another orbicam application.
