    Hey Darklord

    I tried what you told me to do several times and the same thing happened over and over. I have Windows XP and my camera does not show it compatible , only Windows 95. Do I have to buy a new camera to make it work or can I get different software? The camera was new in the package

How do i install a philips web cam on my macbook so i can see video on skype??


The phillips webcam you have may not be compatible.
So far, the list of compatible phillips webcams for macintosh is:

Phillips Vesta
Phillips ToUCam
Phillips Vesta Pro
Phillips SPC900NC
Phillips SPC210NV

Other things to check:

Never install more than one set of drivers for your webcam, you need to delete all previous drivers and install the new ones.

A webcam can only send video to one window, so do not send video to more than one program

As far as checking for video:

Go to Help>Welcome Tour>Setup
>Test Your Equipment
Find your equipment and follow instructions

One more option is:
Preferences<Audio/Video and look for your equipment

    Toshiba satellite L300-1DN webcamera does not operate


    is it on vista? is the webcam compatible with vista?

    also you can only use the webcam with 1 software at a time so makesure it isn't working live elsewhere like msn, skype..ect..

    the only other advice is to unistall and install again following the exact manual instructions.

    Phillips webcam 300 nc wont work


    Normal 0 You need to go to the manufactures site and download the XP or VISTA driver for the camera. Then follow the info below to install the program.



    Try disconnecting the Camera from the USB port and reinstall the CD or Downloaded software program. When the program asks you to connect the camera to the USB port, do so and it should work.
    Hope this helps. Bud
