Check with JVC and your manual to ensure that this camera can be used as a still camera when connected to the PC. I think even some high end cameras do not have this functionality.
You don't say which version of Windows you are running.

I would check with JVC's web site or on your driver disc to see that there are WDM / TWAIN drivers to allow your GZ-MG130 to be seen as an imaging device in Windows.

ı hawe a problem whit the cam


Test your webcam here to make sure it broadcasts ok - Hit 'Allow' in the top window and check your cam in the left hand panel.

Having proved your cam is working ,you can configure it to WLM (MSN)

CONFIGURE SOFTWARE to MSN
Its good practice to disconnect and re-connect your webcam before you start - if you have been using it elsewhere the MSN software may have difficulty in locating it, even if you exited the previous program correctly.
The reason being, the webcam software can remain hooked-up to a program and needs to be rebooted.
Mine, I just unplug it from the USB and plug it back in to reboot the software.
If yours is integral with the computer you will have to re-start the computer, use a keyboard shortcut or disable / enable the webcam from the Device Manager.

Open MSN
Click 'Open Menu'
From 'Tools; navigate to, and click, 'Audio and Video setup'
Set your speakers
Click 'Test' - if OK, move on.
Set your mic as default
Use the slider to set volume and test.
Click 'Next'
This takes you to the video setup
Your webcam should be broadcasting - if not - make sure the webcam is set as default - restart MSN
Use 'Webcam Settings'to fine tune the picture.
Click 'Finish'

Hi Val,

The mode select has three options. Camera, Video and PC Cam. It needs to be set to PC Cam to give you live video.

Web cam troubles


To simply use a web cam, no special software is required other than its driver. It becomes an input device on your computer. Many of the programs already on your computer can make use of the camera -- at least to capture still photos.

However, the ability to do tricks and other special things does require special software. It is probable that you camera came with software to do just what you describe already on its installation CD. You simply have to install it.

I hope this helps.

PC Wont register Camera is connected


If it is a cam corder, a lot of them only work for stills once hooked up to the PC (via USB). Are you certain the cam be used via a computer.
If the camcorder contains both USB and IEE1394/firewire and your computer has both USB and firewire, then sometimes the USb interface is set to stills only and the firewire interface is set to motion only.
Which make/model?

I believe you need the USB cable and you hook it to the computer and install the software that came with the camera and it should work, I have an A520 and at one time I had it hooked to my computer and really never hooked it up as webcam but I believe the option was there

Webcam


For the first user, The screen will cut off on the camera when you plug it into your computer. That is the way it's supposed to work. Make sure your camera is set to webcam. That will be under video resolution in your tools and settings screen. Looking at your camera, it will (or should) be the bottom left button. The camera won't work properly on your computer in Hi Def and that's probably why Yahoo won't recognize it. The resolution is just way too much for it to handle. Hope this helps some.

For the second one, did you install your driver software? Good, had to ask, don't cuss me! (HaHa) Okay, plug in your camera, open the little viewscreen on your camera (this MUST be open or you'll only charge your camera, go to my computer, then to whichever drive your camera is hooked to. It's removable media "L" on my computer, but yours may be different. Click (or double click) on that. You should see an icon that says DCIM, double click. Click on 100 media. Your files should come up. Hope this helps.
