You must check first if you have successfully loaded the drivers. GO TO DEVICE MANAGER. You should be able to see your pc camera listed there. If it is listed and it has a YELLOW QUESTION MARK, that means that the drivers for the pc camera was not installed. Install the drivers manually.

Here is a quick fix:
1. Download the driver file from http://forums.driverguide.com/showthread.php?t=36528
2. Extract this file to C:\WINDOWS\PixArt\PAC207
3. Update camera driver with oem57.inf
4. During install you might be prompted to specified path to PFC027.SYS. Point to C:\WINDOWS\PixArt\PAC207
It will work as expected.

Windows XP service pack 1 does not support the camera.
Generic XP SPII (2) driver recognize camera, gives you basic use of the camera AND microphone. Skype works with the camera. I did replace a Logitec quick cam notebook, with this. No mfg driver needed with my HP XP Media edition & service pack 2.
Do not install the supplied driver or software.

I had the same problem with the 25-298. However when I didnt install the drivers, Windows found the hardware and it worked without needing to install anything. Then I installed the drivers and I got a message box that said "fail". The camera would not work after that.
My Gentoo installation couldnt detect the camera either. Bummer because its a 2.0 MP and I had GREAT quality when it was working. The drivers are horrible.

Return it to RadioSahack or wherever you ought it. It ain't worth it.
Spend a few more bucks and get a decent camera and easier installation!

Sorry. I just experienced the same problems. Frustrating...My suggestion: Just return it to Radio Shake or wherever you bought it, and get yourself a better camera. A few more bucks will save you the waste of time and headaches.
Best of luck.
