Completely uninstall everything associated with the initial install of the camera, might require going into the registry and looking for any instance of the camera. Before you try reinstalling, make sure you have the most recent version of explorer as new scripts require updated IExplorer.

This is a free driver solutions.
This will automatically search for and find the correct driver.
You will have to update every driver individually once you update. You might be
asked whether you want to restart or make a system restore. Point click no to both of these, then continue updating each driver free, then restart once all of the drivers have been updated.
Some webcams and programs require additional software, although that should be installed with the webcam if things are right. But it doesn\'t hurt 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).

If you still have no webcam installed, Run the "Add a device"application, accessed by clicking on the "Start" button, opening the "Control Panel," and then double-clicking on "Add a device."
The "Add a device" window will open and Windows will search for devices connected to your system but not installed.
Click on the webcam name that shows in the search box and
then click "Next."
Choose whether you want Windows to search for the webcam
device driver using Windows Update over the Internet, or if you\'d prefer to
have the device manager search for the driver using a disc supplied by your
laptop manufacturer. Most drivers can be found on the system recovery disc
included with your laptop, if you choose to add the driver from the provided disc.
Place a check in the box next to your choice and then click "Next" to continue.
Wait while Windows searches from the driver using Windows
Update, if this was your choice.
An active Internet connection is required for Windows to
successfully do this. Allow the computer to install the driver and then reboot
the system for the webcam to become recognized by the system.
Otherwise, you can use the system recovery disc or a driver
downloaded directly from your laptop manufacturer to install the driver without
using the Windows Update search feature.
Open the CD/DVD-ROM drive and insert the system recovery
disc, or place the driver downloaded from the manufacturer in an easily
accessed file directory on your PC, such as on the desktop, or in your "My
Documents" folder.
Choose the option "Install the software automatically
(Recommended)" in the "Add a device" application, and press
"Next" to begin searching for your webcam driver.
The hardware wizard will search the system recovery disc and
install the driver automatically. Press "Finish" to close the wizard
and then reboot the computer to allow recognition of the webcam.
Choose the option "Install the software manually"
in order to browse to the driver location where you saved the driver and
install it from there.
Use the opened file manager and locate the driver.
Click the "Next" button to install the
driver, then reboot the computer to add webcam functionality.

I have recently purchased a DMC-ZS7 Panasonic digital Camera.. I am finding it difficult to simply load the CD-Rom software, that accompanues the kit. When asked for the name of the disc, I cannot find...


I've loaded the software and the only disc I was asked for was the location for the software on my computer....in my case, the C drive. This was the "default" location.

I am trying to install my disc so i can upload my pics to the computer. the disc says it installed but it won't run. i get a msg that says application was unable to start correctly.


I don't think you need the software to load the pictures. Just link your camera to your
Computer. Your computer should recognize the camera and begin the upload process without
the software. Just follow the prompts

Can the Dimage Z10 be used as a webcam


Yes it can, most definitely. BUT do you really want to waste an expensive camera on something a proper Webcam can do?

Using your camera as a webcam is like using a Rolls Royce as a Pizza Delivery van, it does the job but it's a bit expensive.

Running your camera will obviously make it generate heat and heat over prolonged periods can affect fragile circuitry. Especially the CCD. Lost pixels is one problem and complete failure is another. I have a Z10 but it's been in a box downstairs for about 3 years. As I'm an invalid I can't get to it without getting someone to go searching (for hours)

Honestly, I'd rather advise you to buy a dedicated webcam which comes with the software required and runs out about $30.00 or less. OK the picture quality won't be as good as your Z10. Another problem is, where are you going to mount it? What software will you use to operate it as a webcam? and do you really want to tie up an expensive piece of equipment taking continuous pictures of yourself.?

If you insist on using the Z10 then you will have to check whatever software you use to chat on the Net has the ability to use a webcam. I know MSN does and just for test purposes I've used a digicam on MSN. I was told the received picture was good. If you intend actually talking as well then I'm not sure but I think you'll need a seperate mic as the internal camera mic is disabled except for movies. Sorry, I'm relying on memory here. I loaded my library of manuals but didn't find any mention of webcam use.
Try a shareware site for software to use for webcam and it should be a simple matter to plug your camera into the USB port using the supplied camera cable and switch your camera to, believe it or not, camera.
Simply getting your face on the screen isn't sufficient, it has to be shown within the webcam box.

So I'll advise against using the Z10 but if you must, you must. If you have any problems setting it up I'll get mine retrieved from downstairs and work it out for you.

Lost disc


Hi,
DSC-W35 / 55 is plug and play camera, hook it with computer through USB cable, Windows will recognize it automatically and will install required drivers.

Thanks.

Software installation problems


You do not need software for the computer to read the camera to upload images. The supplied disc with digital cameras is best left in the box let windows do the work If you would like an images editor then downloaf Picasa which is free or invest in a full editing software such as Coral paintshop pro or one of the Serif range
