Please help me! For one year have been using my web cam successfully. Last week when I clicked on my cam so others can view me, there appears a sign that reads: "Web server is busy. Please try again in a few minutes." Well, the minutes have turned into hours, and now days. The same sign appears, always saying that the server is busy. Could it really be busy for a solid week, or is there something wrong with my cam? Please help me to alleviate the problem so my friends are able to view me. Thank you so much! Renee

Hi! don't worry with the driver..you can choose it from here.. just click the file...and click " save " to
start downloading....using winrar (and or winzip), extract the file and
install driver for your web cam
1**. Double click my computer then double click USB Video Device. You can see your self then. If the USB Video Device not showing there then you have to install the cam first.
2. Power On the laptop/PC & after ready your OS for work just put your Webcam driver disk in DVD/CD RW/ROM. when its open, that time just select webcam driver and install it as per your operating
system(Vista or XP). So do it, and after finish installation ,restart the laptop. Your will see your cam is ready for use. Then follow again the first ( 1 )instruction.**
3. When you confirm after viewing your self in cam , then stop it. Now login on messenger & click to connect the cam from messenger. If any doubt then then ask me a again. Thanks & waiting for your feed back.
Attach all power cords (e.g. laptopand/or web cam).
Plug your USB cam directly into your computer (do not use any external USB hubs). Turn your cam on
As long as your web cam and computer hardware are working, Windows should detect it!
2. Open Device Manager
For Vista => Click Control Panel. If you have Control Panel Classic View, click Device Manager => Click Control Panel. If you have Control Panel Home View, click System and Maintenance->Device Manager
For XP => Click Control Panel->System, then Hardware tab, then Device Manager button
3. Find your web cam in Device Manager
Understanding Device Names => Windows provides user-friendly device names to accomodate us humans. As far as Windows is concerned, the device name is simply a comment! => It's those cryptic Device Identification strings that really identify a device => Device Manager displays whatever device name it happens to find in the device driver ...==> If Windows finds NO device driver, your web cam may be named “Unknown” or "Other" device ...==> If Windows finds the WRONG device driver you may see your web cam with the WRONG device name
How to find your web cam => While your web cam is connected, look through all of Device Manager for devices with a yellow icon (probably a yellow question mark) => Look if a device category Other Devices. Also, be certain to expand the USB category to check all devices listed under it => Your web cam will appear as a device with a yellow icon (probably a question mark) => Click on thumbnail to see the full sized image How to verify the device you found is your web cam => Your web cam device will only appear in Device Manager when the web cam is powered on and connected => Disconnect your web cam. Verify the device you had found is no longer displayed in Device Manager
4. Find your web cam's Hardware Ids
In Device Manager, select your web cam device, rt click Properties. Click Details tab
Select Hardware Ids from the pull-down. You'll see a list of one or more Hardware Id strings
Hello have you check the cam with another system or check the connection well and make sure the cam is on then reconnect it to the power source and make sure you click on the view webcam to view others persons webcam
