Question about Mustek Gsmart Mini Digital Camera

1 Answer

Camera cannot be detected on PC with windows XP running.

I have been gifted this gSmart mini camera, a few days ago only. Iam using windows XP on my comp. Ihoever do not have the installation CD. I have downloaded all the drivers for scanner & Camera. Also restarted the PC. Then when installing Web.exe with the camera switched on & conected to PC, it asks for "place installation disk # 3 into the floppy drive". So I have to abort the installation, as i do not posess the installation cd. Hence my comp does not detect my switched on camera when plugged into the runing PC. Please help. For windows XP, is an installation cd really needed for detection/uploading of camera pics etc? I am in Auckland, New Zealand. Carlton.

I am trying to fix my boss' Inspiron Mini 1012 - the Webcam is not opening. unable to find the driver. Where can i download the driver for his webcam?


@christinwayn

This computer uses the generic driver for Windows XP and Windows 7 and thus there's no need to install a driver. If you need to re-install the Webcam driver, try to do the following:

For Windows XP / 7
1. Press the Windows Key+R on the keyboard (the windows key looks like this ray_tosh_1.jpg ).
2. Type devmgmt.msc then press Enter.

3. Expand Imaging Devices, right click on your camera and choose Update Driver Software

4. Click Search Automatically for Updated Driver Software

If this doesn't work, I recommend doing a System Restore (if it was working a few days or weeks ago, step by step guide here) or a System Recovery (if you don't mind starting from scratch - you need to press F8 simultaneously during boot-up > choose Repair Your Computer and click on your account > Choose Dell Factory Image Restore).


Good luck

Hello,can I use my gsmart mini 3 digital camera, with my windows 7 ultimate ? thanks for answer..


Hi,

Yes the camera is supported by Win 7, all you have to do is install the software that comes with the camera on the operating system.
The camera also doubles up as a webcam.

No Drivers for Vista


Hi, I don't see a download from the manufacturer's web site either, you can try running a free scan for updated Mustek drivers for Vista here though. Good luck!

Bought the RCA m4304-a for son for Christmas when we try to install software we get errors on each item it tries to download


Try using Windows Media Player to upload your music. I'm not a fan of the software that came with it. I received mine as a Christmas gift a few days ago and I found it is so much easier to upload music through Windows Media Player than to use their software. Plus, it is a lot easier to upload audio books as well. Make sure you have the most up to date version of Windows Media Player for your operating system. I run Windows XP, so mine was Windows Media Player 10.

I haven't tried to upload video or pictures yet though. Hope this helps!

Where can I get Drivers for Mustek cameras. The gsmart series D55 specifically.I'm running Vista OS


The D55 appears to be a non-standard Mustek model, probably exclusive to a particular store group or home shopping channel. Mustek don't mention the model at all on any of their websites worldwide that I've been able to search so it's clear that they want aftersales support to be the responsibility of the retailer.

Have a look at the specifications for the identical looking GSmart D50 at the first web address below, if your camera specifications are mostly the same then the D55 is a cut price D50 with a 2.1 megapixel sensor replacoing the 3.1MP sensor of the D50. Note that in many markets the D55 is advertised as a 5.2MP camera and the D50 as a 6.2MP model. Such claims are misleading as they fail to mention that the image has been digitally interpolated to increase the apparent resolution, but it's always a fudge and should be turned off in the camera menu.

If I'm right about the shared basis of the D55 and D50 then Mustek do not support the camera with a Vista driver but you may be able to run the XP driver using XP Compatibility Mode. The second web address shows how to try this but contrary to what Microsoft would have you believe it's frequently unsuccesful.
