Question about Microsoft LifeCam VX-3000 Web Camera

1 Answer

The data is invalid

Hi,

I just bought a VX-3000 MS Lifecam and I installed the SW as required (using the available CD). When I plug-in the USB cable, my Windows XP didn't find the right driver (having a "The data is invalid"). I went to the device manager and there is a "yellow" sign in this device. I believe is my system32/drivers that is missing some specific driver. Could you help me realizing what I have to do (looking for) to solve this issue?

Many thanks in advance and best regards,
Mateus

    Hi Sergio,

    First of all, thanks for answer me so quick. As you suggested I downloaded and installed the "LifeCam 1.4 32-bit for Windows XP SP2 or higher" and unfortunately still not working. The code that I have is "Code 28". For some reason there was a problem installing this driver. I'd like to install from a specific folder, but first I have to download the necessary drivers. What do you think?

    Best regards and thanks again,
    Mateus

    Cannot install this hardware


    First of all, you might want to read this:

    http://www.fixya.com/support/t299686-install_microsoft_lifecam_vx_3000

    What system are you using?

    Try doing a Google search "LifeCam VX3000 installation" and seeing if any of the documents listed helps you. I am not sure what OS you are using (Windows XP or Vista? Linux? Another?) Others have reported problems too. Be careful about which you do first during setup. Some systems require installing drivers/software BEFORE you plug in the camera, and some require you to install software/drivers AFTER you plug in the camera.
