Microsoft LifeCam vx3000

I've setup my cam so that the sound is getting picked up from my line/mic in input. I am able to record but when i review my video. After ten seconds the sound dramatically slows down and video freezes...Can anyone advise me of what may be going on???

    Getting what I believe to be a TWAIN related error when accessing one of our 2 VX3000 cameras through our veterinary practice management software's TWAIN interface...no idea what the error means or how to fix it, or why it is only happening on one station with one of the cameras. Both cameras bought at same time, computer workstations identical. Running XP Pro SP2 on both. Running Lifecam software ver 1.4



    Error is as follows: Error Copy sre file error!



    Nothing found on Internet about this error that I can find?



    Pops up twice, then camera works...odd and frustrating??

    I am having the same problem with one of my customers. We have about 30 of these cameras working without any issues except this one customer. They have Windows XP (not sure of the version). If I open the camera through our software using twain, I get the error. If I open the camera through the software provided with the camera, I do not get the error. Error reads "copy sre file error". The camera does work after clicking the OK button on the error message.

Microsoft Lifecam / Using a different microphone


Im not sure I understood exactly the issue but the solutions are more than one ...
you may just uninstall the web cam ...and set the mic you want to use and after that reinstall the web cam ...and you have every chances to be installed and the external mic to remain in use..
or ...to use the mic from the external pink entry of the pc ...just select it from the sound driver ...options..
in your capture program you might also have the choice for which mic to use ....
in your yahoo messenger for example you have this choice on preferences /audio device....
you also may find on your control panel ...sound and audio device /audio../and for the sound recording audio device ...select the one you want...
good luck !

My lifecam problem


What it sounds like is that you are getting feedback from your speakers. Turn down the sound or try a set of headphones to see if that eliminates the problem.
Hope this helps. Bud

Microsoft webcam VX 6000. Buzz on video capture


I took the cam apart, removed the mic from its seat and gently separated the red and black wires - ran the red one over top the lens and the black one underneath. Replaced the mic, screwed it all back together and the problem is gone. For now. One tip is to record sound using Windows Sound Recorder while you're doing this, watch the input line and when it goes flat you know the buzz is gone. While it buzzez, the line will be active.
