Question about Logitech Webcam

1 Answer

I have bought a Logitech Webcam and I get the message that I have installed it correctly in my Windows XP home PC. The problem is that the camera works only with Wndows Exlprorer (through My computer). Any other program (Skype, Logitech camera software) cannot use the camera as it is engaged by another program which I cannot identify and stop (most probably the system itself is using it).

    It is the windows epxlorer that hijacks the camera. Neither Logitech nor Skype can use the camera. Only splitcam can use it, but it is not helpful I want Skype to be able to use it. I have tried several alternatives actions (elimination from startup group even unistall of any program that potentially uses video capture, disable the device etc). It seems that there is an installation of Windows XP problem.

1. Your Skype setup should have selector to let you use the camera indepenently but the Logitech camera utility will have to be disabled or the program exited.
Remove the Logitech camera from the " startup group in the start up window in the startup folder in the program files. this should stop the Logitech program from loading and give the Skype program access to the camera.

Quickcam S5500 driver for win2000 OS


Hello,
Unfortunately there is no way to get a driver for that camera if logitech doesnt offer it. You can try using a driver for a similar camera from logitech, it may work but there are no guarantees

Here is where you can search for drivers: http://www.logitech.com/index.cfm/support_downloads/&cl=nz,en

Sorry about that
I hope you find one that works

Have a good day!

Error message when installing Logitech webcam


Hi,

If you click on this link,
http://www.logitech.com/index.cfm/support_downloads/downloads/
it'll take you to the Logitech website, and you should click on 'Webcams' in the Product list, and select your webcam version from the Product Name list, then press the arrow and it'll let you download the correct driver for your webcam.
Be sure to get a driver that is XP compatible..

Even if the installation doesn't have a Windows Security Certificate, the Logitech driver software will have the operating system support built in.

If you have problems installing the driver, go to Control Panel, System, Device Manager, and look under Imaging Devices or wherever you see a tellow exclamation mark and double click on the device listing and hit the driver tab, and install the driver from there, choosing the 'Let me choose the driver' type option, and then navigate to the folder you unzipped the driver software to, install, wait and reboot.
Done!

Hope this helps
