    " put the disk in, downloaded everything onto my computer and i can't get my cam to work.. there is no icon on my desktop. I plug it in and the green light comes on and then goes right out. nothing. i have windows vista... and it says its compatible."

    This is the EXACT problem I have. I can find no solution anywhere! The funny thing is it has worked fine on two previous occasions on the same computer with the same operating system. Was easily installed the first time with no problems whatsoever (except the green light stays on continuously). It seems that whenever this stupid vista system crashes - which so far has been twice - that everything is wiped out and the only stuff that is able to be recovered are the data that loads automatically when the system gets setup. The recovery point snapshot evidently does not work either because we always lose anything we have added since the beginning. AAAAARRRRRRGGGGGGGGGHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I guess the solution to this problem(s) is to save (and use) all your data on a different computer with a different operating system!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!......AAAARRRRRRRRRGGGGGGGGHHHHHHHH again!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


    1. load and unload the webcam data (drivers, etc.), install and uninstall the program software, restart the computer,....over and over and over....

    2. look for solutions such as updated drivers, software, instructions, etc. all over the internet, microsoft website, and hp website, googled it, etc.

    3. pull all my hair out and scream like a banshee on my front lawn - although I really thought at first this would work, it seems it only gave my neighbors a slight chuckle - must have known I had vista.

    4. did a "rain " (fix webcam - please work this time) dance under an old oak tree to appease the gods but evidently they hate microsoft as much as we do.

Green light is on mine, but USB port shows no device. When I plug it in, I get "found new device" message, but no icon on my desktop. None of my messengers recognize it either. It does show up in cameras and scanners though...I'm so confused.

I have no cd to download my quick cam

Unplug your cam
uninstall any current webcam software
restart your computer
visit the logitech website - identify your cam and click on the picture,en?prodcrid=405
download the installer.
run the installation set up and note the options - you may not want the Logitech Chat but the Desktop icon is a must.
Note - you will also need DirectX download to support your webcam - this is probably covered in the installer
Connect your webcam when prompted.

Won't work at all

uninstall everything. unplug the cam. restart. put cd in. run the auto run and it will install the drivers and program for the cam. after its done take the cd out. plug in your cam. the PnP will find it and automatically update the drivers and recognize the cam. it should work then.

If you have the installation disk you already have the driver. You have to BACKDOOR Vista. Put the disk in the cd drive. Exit the installation then go to my computer or just computer whatever your says. Then right click on the Veo icon. Click on explorer. Then open the drivers folder. Right click and COPY the folder that says winxp on it. Paste it to the desktop. Then plug the cam into the usb port. Now manually in stall the driver. When it ask to find the driver click on browse. Then find the folder you just copied. Then click next. I have the same cam and it worked for me. Hopefully you can figure out how I did it.
