Question about Microsoft LifeCam VX-3000 Web Camera

Webcam is slow

HI, I just bought a MS LifeCam VX-3000. I have a Dell Inspiron 6000 1.7 GHZ with 1.5 GB Ram, Windows XP Media.
I am not using the webcam to stream video over the net. I want to attach the camera to my guitar for "guitar cam" and record when I play. However, when I do that, the video is slower (or delayed) from real time. In other words, if I move my hand, the video shows my hand moving a couple of seconds later and the video of my hand moving is sometimes blurred.

Is this normal for webcams? A guy on YouTube bought a LogiTech webcam for $25 dollars and records video in real time.

    yeah ive got lifecam vx-1000 and i wouldnt say my computers slow but there is a definate lag between real time and the recorded video/sound

    Same problem with the VX3000. Also the sound is almost inaudible. Both sender and receiver shows that that the internet may be slow. This has been going on for some time now. Not sure what to do.

    Yeah I bought the cam about a week or so ago. I am having issues with the sound syncing with the video. I did a little test where I clapped my hands and I would hear it after a few seconds...Is there a way this can be fixed?

Software Installation of Microsoft LifeCam VX-6000 terminates with an error "Insufficient free space"


I purchaased MS Lifecam from Walmart at a bargain price of $50.00 yesterday. I quickly installed the s/w on my windows 2003 XP under 5 mins. The camera worked for exactly 20 mins. I opted out from installing the Live Messanger ( don't need it). However the s/w crashed within 20 mins, complaining of a fatal error, which it could not Debug, but insisted on sending off the report to MS..which I declined. After trying to reload the s/w on the same computer for 3 more times, which involved remove and re-install..I finally gave up on the 2003 XP. I then tried to load the s/w on my windows 7 laptop..got the same error message. After messing with it for at least 5 hours, and ruining half my day, I returned the product back to walmart and got my money back. What a scam!! The MS Support site tells you to reinstall windows 7 and then try to reload the d- -n!! s/w again. What kind of Freaking solution is that??!! BTW I have plenty of space on laptop, 80 gigs..so space was not an issue.
