My orbicam doesn't come on how do i get to that info ? I don't even have an icon for it.


First we will create the new folder where the pictures will be moved to:
1. Click on the Start button.
2. Click on Computer
3. Double-click on the C drive
4. Double-click on Users
5. Double-click on your user name
6. Double-click on Desktop.
7. Once you are in the Desktop, right-click on a blank white area (not on an icon) then select Create > New Folder.
8. Call the folder "Picture Backup" or any other significant name. (Do not close the windows since we will need it later) in step 11
Now we will move the pictures from the old folder to the new one:
9. Click on the START button then click on Pictures
10. Click on one picture and then go to Edit > Select All. This will highlight all the files in this folder.
11. Right-click on one of the selected files then select Cut
12. Go back to the folder we created in step 7 and
13. Right-click and paste the contents we Cut from the Pictures folder.
Now, restart your computer and try the OrbiCam application again. This should allow your OrbiCam application to work again.

Acer orbicam


There are two software entities involved – the camera Drivers and the OrbiCam application itself – and BOTH need replacing/updating to fix this problem.
The new driver and a new version of webcam application (below) seem to fix the issue.
The correct files to download are:
Acer Orbicam driver (Bison)
Acer Orbicam Bison utility 1.0.0.13

These can be found here under the MS Windows Vista drop down menu:
http://support.acer-euro.com/drivers/notebook/as_9300.html
In order to fix the problem, you must download and install them both to make the Orbicam work correctly.

FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTIONS BELOW IN THE SAME ORDER:
1. remove the installed OrbiCam application and reboot if required;
2. install the new driver (preferably with the “driver update” wizard from Device Manager)
3. update the Orbicam application 1.0.0.13

After this, the webcam should function properly, even if the original Orbicam icon disappears.
To check everything is working OK run LiveCa07.exe or BisonM07.exe that are located in the c:\windows\bisonxxx\ folder or simply run Messenger

Orbicam problem


you can try to unplug and plug again the camera cable,
if it is still not working, try to reload the operating system from disks or Alt+F10.If reload don't work, the orbicam could be bad.

** Note ** When the My Pictures or Pictures folder gets full, camera will not work - Cut and Paste all pictures in that folder to another folder and restart Orbicam program.

If that does not work then do this:
