Actually this is the codec pack problem.
the codec were trying to open the webcam.
If you installed k-lite codec pack or ffdshow codec, you might can easily solve this.

to fix the k-lite codec pack from opening your webcam:
(for windows xp only)
start > run :
type : rundll32.exe "C:\Program Files\K-Lite Codec pack\ffdshow\ffdshow.ax",configure
go to directshow control, then you will see 'dont use ffdshow in:' with box contains application name with extension. so just add the application file name with extension.
------
example:
'explorer.exe;'
------
(without quote at the end)
by adding the explorer.exe usually can fix the viewing webcam in my computer.

for other codec, please locate the 'ffdshow.ax' file and just change the directory above without changing ',configure' parameters and 'rundll32.exe'.

thanks for reading!!

    actually, it is only if you have conflict in ffdshow which is usually installed together with popular codec pack named klite codec pack...
    if u dont have it, maybe theres a driver problem or compatibility problem... to fix compatibility problem, u need to install 3rd party webcam software called ManyCam.http://download.manycam.com/

Actually it can take be one of two problems that K-Lite codec packs creates.

The first is the above and can be solved by running the K-Lite Mega Codec pack tweak tool - manage installed codecs and filters.

Once it has opened in "disable the following active filters" select ffdshow to disable it in the first screen.

The second problem is with a black screen even once the above has been completed - To sort this proceed to the next screen on the tweak tool - select VFW & ACM codecs that belong to windows - disable the microsoft h.261 filter and that should sort the black screen problem.

It would help if the message was there but will assume it said, if your are connected. Anyway here is the sequence of events I would suggest (assuming you have checked all connections).

First, if you can still see yourself but not take a picture, it is very likely your software became corrupted (or something else did in Windows - again assuming that is your OS). Try reinstalling your software.

Next....Make sure under device manager there are no exclamation marks....if there are reinstall the drivers.

If these do not work then uninstall your software, including deleting any application folders under program files (but not your pictures) and run scandisk in thorough mode. Then download Ccleaner and clean your registry. The try reinstalling.

If that does not work you more than likely have an operating system problem.....try to restore, repair, and then (last resort) reinstall (which also means you may have to reinstall all your application software). One of the above should solve the problem. Suggest you follow the sequence outlined. Tango.

How do I find where my device has gone?


Try another USB port on your computer? And securely connect the connectors to the external drive and into the computer. Restore computer to a date when it was working fine with this drive.

Where has my storage device gone?


First, reboot your computer; does the external drive reappear in My Computer ?

Go to DiskManagement (Start>Computer (right click)>Management>DiskManagement. Does the disk show up there ?

Check your USB system (Start>Computer (right click)>Properties>DeviceManager>USB controllers inW7; XP same except choose Hardware>DeviceManager); is a Mass Storage Device shown there ? Is the USB 'eject' icon shown on the system tray at the bottom right of your screen (small greenish square) ? If not, then suspect a connection problem. If your computer is recognizing the disk in your USB system but not in the other tools, your drivers may be corrupted. This simple to fix (report back if this seems to be the case)
Check your USB cable is plugged in at both ends. Try a new/different cable. The cable should be as short as possible. Try a different USB socket on your computer. Verify that the cable isn't loose in the disk housing. USB 3.0 connections have often been reported to be mechanically weak and susceptible to breakage. If the socket on external drive is broken, then a return to manufacturer/retailer and replacement may be necessary. Often a consequence of this is loss of data. ALWAYS KEEP BACK-UPs.

I can't get my computers to talk to one another through sonicwall and Im wondering what could be the issue


THere are many things you must be fully educated on like DNS, IP numbering and subnet masking for different networks (for the different sites), TCP Port and Protocol (UDP, TCP) knowledge for different TCP services (you have to know what you want each network to have access to) and Public Key Private Key methodology, IPSec, PPTP and Routing.

THere are many things that can go wrong. FOr instance in your particular case I would assume that your router is not configured to utilize groups of users and then assign those same groups to different traffic templates. YOu need to make sure that your four locations are assigned a particular traffic pattern. Most allow what the other gentleman spoke of "remote access" but you need more of a open network amongst authenticated users.

Routers of this class generally work by allowing you to assign traffic to a very specific Port and direction assignment. For instance simply - http traffic is always on port 80. If you wanted your users to have internet HTTP connectivity you must assign port 80 incoming and outgoing to those users and assign that traffic to internal and external IP addresses by using Network Address Translation on the IP address of the external network. YOu also want to make certain that your Gateway for the remote users are using their own internet service provider account because sometimes uneducated people setup the internet access to be routed to the external ip adddress on the home router. In this situation you would have a remote user dialing the home office and then requesting an internet page from that External network, only to have that traffic then come back to the home router and then out again over the vpn to the remote location. All internet traffic should be routed to the local gateway of that locations provider. THose remote routers will allow this and then only file sharing and printing and other critical network services should be routed over the VPN itself.

As I said it is very complicated and I would definitely pay someone to do this for you and then walk you through basic configuration issues while they are there. You would probably pay in the neighborhood of about 100-150 an hour but for this level you would be getting a certified and knowledgable person. You could also call SonicWall and have them walk you through it for a fee. Watchguards fee is 500.00 to 1000.00 depending on sophistication.

I am sure this only confused you more but IP Routing and VPN traffic routing is difficult and even people who have been in this industry for a very long time find it difficult. You have to be in it and doing it all the time for it to come second nature. I believe your IP addresses are on completely different subnets or ranges. That is another place to start. You really need to setup your internal networks at all locations on the SAME NETWORK in order for them to speak to one another.

127.0.0.1 is one network that is publicly unroutable or 192.168.0.1 or 192.168.111.1. These are common netoworks.

I'll try to give you a short lesson this. subnet masks (the 255.255.255.0) number under the ip address in the networks section allows you to segment your traffic to only communicate to a certain NUMBER of computers.

An IP Address of 192.168.0.0 with a subnet mask of 255.255.255.254 gives you zero computers. If you move the subnet mask to 255.255.255.252 you get 4 ip address but only 2 computers that can talk to one another. THe ip address in this configuration would be 192.168.0.0, 192.168.0.1, 192.168.0.2 and 192.168.0.3. The first ip address of any given network is ALWAYS the network address and should not be used (192.168.0.0) the next two ip address can be assigned to computers and the last ip address is always a "Broadcast" address for the network to speak on.

YOu could have started with another number to begin with for instance 192.168.1.54 subnet mask 255.255.252 and the same methodology would apply. 192.168.1.54 is the network, 192.168.1.55 and 56 are the computer addresses and 192.168.1.57 is the broadcast address.

If you want to have multiple computers at different locations you must all be on the same network with the same IP addressing scheme.

AN example 192.168.111.0 subnet mask of 255.255.255.0 would give you available address of 254 computers but 256 addresses (including zero).

The subnet masks are as follows for this network above (maybe you can use this)

192.168.111.0
255.255.255.254

Zero Computers only a network address and a broadcast address. Remember you only have 256 addresses in a range and the first is network and the last is broadcast so in this configuration you have 192.168.111.0 and 192.168.111.1 (only two addresses)

192.168.111.0
255.255.255.252

Two Computers 192.168.111.1 and 192.168.111.2 with network of 192.168.111.0 (first IP number) and broadcast of 192.168.111.3 (last IP Number) only two usable addresses but FOUR ip addresses.

192.168.111.0
255.255.255.248

Six computers with IPS of 192.168.111.1 to 192.168.111.6. Network of dot zero and broadcast of dot seven (192.168.111.7)

192.168.111.0
255.255.255.240

fourteen address 192.168.111.1 to 192.168.111.14
network .0, broadcast .15

subnet of 255.255.224
thirty computers 192.168.111.1 to 192.168.111.30
network of .0 and broadcast of .31

subnet of 255.255.192
sixty two computers 111.1 to 111.62
network of .0 and broadcast of .63

subnet of 255.255.128
One hundred twenty six computers 111.1 to 111.126
network of .0 and broadcast of .127

subnet of 255.255.0
Two hundred fifty four computers 111.1 to 111.254
network of .0 and broadcast of .255.

THis is one reason the actual computers wont talk to one another probably. ALL computers on the VPN must talk on the same Route or be ROUTED with the routers routing of networks options. to make the traffic move from one network to another.
