This can usually be fixed by updating what is called a "driver" in the computer. On Windows 7, open the start menu. Find "Computer" and right click it. A menu will open, and left click "Manage." A window will open. Find a tab called "Device Manager." Scroll through the list and find a category called "Imaging Device" or "Video Imaging Device" Double click it, and find the tab called "Driver" CLick the button called "Update Driver" That should help :)

Camera getting connected and then dis-connected and my photo is coming in negative


Skype is a free software program that allows you to make phone calls through the computer. It also lets you text chat and place video calls. Since Skype is designed for use with web cams, it has the capacity to take snapshots both of you and of the person to whom you are talking in a video call. Plug your web cam into your computer and make sure it is on, open Skype, click on the "Skype" menu, select "Change your picture," and then click "Take Video Snapshot." After that, you can decide whether you want to keep the picture or trash it. Use this option if you want a picture that people can see in Skype almost immediately and don't want to bother with downloading or uploading anything. b>

With everyone using social networking websites like Facebook and Myspace, being able to produce a decent profile picture is becoming more of a standard expectation for computer users. You don\'t need expensive digital cameras to take a picture of yourself with your computer. You can take a snapshot of yourself for free if you have Internet access and a web cam.

Some webcams and programs require additional software, although that should be installed with the webcam if things are right.



But is does not harm to check if your Java, Flash and Quicktime software are installed and up to date.

But certainly check your DirectX software, since all video applications, including webcams, use DirectX for video processing.



Try downloading the latest DirectX version and install it (Windows XP: DirectX 9.0c - Windows Vista: DirectX 10).

Well i have linux on my computer and my logitech camera wont work on skype or anything nothing will pop up to show me what to do when i plug in the cord to my computer is there any solution??????????????


Hello dear Linux user:

Unlike Windows, Linux will not pop a window notifying about a new USB device, unless it's some kind of file storage.
You could check whether or not you USB WEB camera was recognized by your system by opening a terminal window and type: lsusb and press enter. If you device is listed, it's a good sign.
The next step is to configuring your Skype Client. While logged in Skype, open Audio Options Settings and select pulseaudio for incoming and outgoing. After saving your options, open Video Options and select your USB Camera as your video device from the scroll down menu.
I am not sure what Linux Distribution you have. However, Logitech Cameras are usialy working without any problems on Ubuntu 10 or higher.
Hope this helps
