Question about Logitech Webcam

2 Answers

I've bought a logitech quickcam communicate STX. When I installed it first it worked fine. Someone unpluged it from the usb port and it wouldn't work. I re-installed the drivers and it was fine again but each time I turn the laptop on I have a problem with the built in microphone. When I try and set it up through windows live messenger, audio and video settings, when I get to the drop down box the webcam built in mic is not there, when it was previously.

I've bouth a logitech quickcam communicate STX. When I intalled it at the first it worked fine.I formerly used windows xp software and then someday I decided to change my software into windows vista ultimate. After then everytime i started to open my computer it always appear on screen that the windows encountered a problem installing the driver software for your device. The extended attributes are inconsistent. Found new hardware - unknown device. I don't understand this warning everytime I started to on my computer while my logitech cam worked properly and no problems actually. why it always warn me?

The microphone may not work because of a hardware or configuration problem. To determine if it's a hardware problem, test the microphone in Sound Recorder.

  1. Click "Start," > "Programs" ("All Programs" for Windows XP) > "Accessories" > "Entertainment" > "Sound Recorder."
  2. Click the Record button and speak into the microphone of the camera. You should see the green line move, indicating the application is picking up sound.
  3. Click the Stop button.
  4. Click the Play button. If there is no sound at playback, check to make sure the correct device is selected.
    1. Click "Edit," then "Audio Properties."
    2. Make sure Logitech is listed as the Preferred device for "Sound recording."
The microphone may also be defective. To test this, try the camera on another USB enabled system.
If you can record sound in Sound Recorder, but not in the QuickCam application, try setting the Logitech Microphone as the Preferred device in Audio Properties.

Lost internet connection after installing software

Normal 0 Probably has corrupt driver.
Try disconnecting the Camera from the USB port and reinstall the CD software program. When the program asks you to connect the camera to the USB port, do so and it should work.
Hope this helps. Bud

Logitech QuickCam STX vista compatibility?

when you were installing the software did a taskbar pop up appear and tell you that hardware was found, and then proceeded to install the cam and inform you that the Logitech STX is now installed and ready for use? If not then the cam may need to be tried in another usb port as of yet it has not been recognised by windows. Also if this is being used on a laptop, sometimes there is not enough power amps being sent be the usb port to recognise, again trying a different port may solve that. If all else fails re install the software again, but make sure windows is allowing the cam to work, as sometimes there is an updater programme that works in conjunction with the cam to update drivers etc, this will probably be being dissalowed by either windows or your internet security programme and any part of the software that is being blocked may be stopping your cam also.

Check the camera settings are not too high 320x480 or similair should be enough. Have you installed Windows Messenger live, the new MSN and tried it with that? If your'e problem persists try this problem page.
