You should not have had to install anything for the cam to work on Vista. If you have installed any software, remove it. Reboot, plug your player in, open Device Manager, and remove the device that shows up representing your cam(completely uninstall it). Reboot again, and plug in your player. It should be recognized now.

Installed software and connected camera. microsoft webcam program says camera is not connected


Hi,

If it is connected using a usb cable, make sure the cable is connected properly or else try to plug the cable into a different USB port. If it still doesn't work than uninstall the drivers completely, unplug your webcam >> restart your computer >> install the drivers and connect the camera when it asks for it.

Good Luck!

    You need to go on line to the manufacture and download the VISTA driver for your camera and then follow this info to install.

    Try disconnecting the Camera from the USB port and reinstall the CD or Downloaded software program. When the program asks you to connect the camera to the USB port, do so and it should work.

    I am not sure how to install the software


    WARNING: DO NOT connect the camera to your computer before installing the software.
    To install the software, insert the Logitech camera software CD into your computer's CD-ROM drive. The Setup screen should appear. If it does not, please perform the following steps:
    1. Click Start and then Run.
    2. Type D:Setup.exe and press the Enter key.
    3. Follow the on-screen instructions.
    After the computer reboots, the driver installation for the camera will start. Do not connect the camera until the setup prompts you to connect the camera cable to your computer.
    While the driver installation progresses, remove the camera and camera base from the packaging and mount the camera on the camera base.
    When prompted, plug the camera into the USB port. You should see the following diagram to let you know where to plug the camera in:
