MS VX3000 camera software problem - sre error

Getting what I believe to be a TWAIN related error when accessing one of our 2 VX3000 cameras through our veterinary practice management software's TWAIN interface...no idea what the error means or how to fix it, or why it is only happening on one station with one of the cameras. Both cameras bought at same time, computer workstations identical. Running XP Pro SP2 on both. Running Lifecam software ver 1.4

Error is as follows: Error Copy sre file error!

Nothing found on Internet about this error that I can find?

Pops up twice, then camera works...odd and frustrating??

Normal 0 Did you install the software with the camera connected to the computer? Disconnect the camera from the USB port and reinstall the software. When the program asks you to connect the camera, do so, and it should work. Hope this is of some help. Bud

Below is info for setting up Audio & Video to chat on line after you install , either Skype or a messenger program.


Web Camera’s have to be setup on the program they are to be used with. Just installing the camera on your computer does not set it up to broadcast on messengers or Skype.

Each program has Options that have to be setup in order for the Audio and Video to function properly.

A. Skype Setup:

After downloading and installing Skype set it up as follows:

  1. Go to TOOLS, then OPTIONS, and click on Audio Settings and set the Microphone and Speakers to the computer Audio Card.
  2. Then click on the Video Settings.
  3. The camera if installed properly will come up and show a picture.
  4. Then on the bottom of the page click on Save.

The camera and audio should function properly. Your friends and Family will now see and talk to you.

B. Yahoo Setup:

After downloading and installing Yahoo Messenger set it up as follows:

  1. Go to Messenger at the top left and click on it.
  2. Next go down to Preferences and click on it.
  3. Next Calling and Devices on the right and set the Microphone and Speakers to the computer Audio Card.
  4. Next go to the Test Audio section and (in blue writing) click on “Open the call setup assistant” and follow the instructions on the left window.

C. Windows Live Messenger:

  1. After you start Windows Live Messenger, expand the view by clicking on the square on top left next to the red X.
  2. Then on the Windows Live messenger window on the right side, click on “ “Show Menus.” And then click on “Show the Menu Bar”.
  3. Next go to the Menu Bar on right side, click on “ “Action.”
  4. Go to “TOOLS” and click “Audio and Video Setting” and follow the instructions.
NOTE: You audio and video shoud work. Enjoy.

When done both the Audio and Video will function properly so you can chat and see family or friends you are connected to.
Hope this helps. Bud

Am trying to install my microsoft lifecam vx3000 webcam to my pc but am not getting it done. help me because I dont have the cd for the camera. what should i do?


It's a very simple problem and well known. You can try searching all over the internet and if you get any chance you can find the software but for webcams, It's like impossible to find one.So, forget that webcam (it's very old webcam for ourdays) and get a hi-def webcam.Expensive but u will never regret.

Go to Microsoft's Product page: http://www.microsoft.com/hardware/digitalcommunication/productdetails.aspx?pid=001

On the right side you'll find the "Download Software" link.
Choose product, model, operating system, language, and download the driver.

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.
