Choose the option "Install the software manually" in order to browse to the driver location where you saved the driver and install it from there. Use the opened file manager and locate the driver.

Camera isn't recognized on my computer what do i do


if your webcam is not working properly (or at all) it is almost certainly a driver issue. However, sometimes computers think they are smarter than we are, and rather than let you install the software that works your camera, the computer will hold it as a device that just isn't working.

I assume you have purchased this camera new, and that you have the software disk that came with it. I also assume that you have predetermined that you have the correct operating system on your computer for the camera.

the following is based on Windows XP (home and pro) and Windows 2000

What we need to do next is start all over. First, we will remove any software that was installed from the disk. From the Start menu, find the Control Panel (if you are using the Classic settings, you will have to find Settings first, then Control Panel.)

In the control panel, find the Add/Remove Programs icon (it should be about the third one). In the programs list, find anything related to the camera (like IBM Camera) and remove it. Restart the computer if asked.

Once that is done, we need to look at the Device Manager to find the non working camera. Find your My Computer icon and RIGHT click on it. From the menu that appears, choose Properties.

With the Properties window open, find the Hardware tab, then the button that says, Device Manger.

With this open, first look for anything with a yellow exclamation mark. If you find it, RIGHT click on it and choose UNINSTALL from the menu.

If you do not find it, look under USB (you may have to click the + to the left of the list). Do you find anything on the list that suggests it is either not working ( ! ) or is a camera (USB IBM Camera)? If so, RIGHT click on it and choose UNINSTALL.

At this point, all traces of the camera should be gone from the computer. Be sure the camera is unplugged, and install the software from the disk. If the system prompts you to plug in the camera, do so; if not, do not.

When the software has been completely installed, including restarts, then plug in your camera. The system should automatically find the drivers and make the camera operational.

Good luck

Installed the Logitech 10.5.1 software, lost networks, access


ok.. so the other way for that is to repair it using your Operating System disc. It repairs the missing or corrupted files. You don't have to worry because it will not remove your files from your harddisk. You will just choose Repair in the option menu when you boot from your Operating System disc.

My pc can not realize your cam needs cd or some i lost already can you helo to solve this thanks


Youre in a bit of a pickle if you're using Windows XP or Vista (i.e., any Windows operating system that is less than 10 years old).

the Xirlink IBM Pro Max has been out of production for a few years. In fact, the manufacturer (Xirlink) doesn't even have a site anymore. That's right, its older than Dakota Fanning, but we won't be detterred, will we?

Let's fix it so it can operate on XP/Vista:

  1. download the original driver for windows 98 by going here. NOTE: Make sure you save this on your desktop or somewhere that you can find it easily, I can not stress this enough.
  2. let's examine the driver status in Device Manager. You can get to the device manager by right-clicking on My Computer, clicking on Properties, clicking on the Hardware tab, and then clicking on the Device Manager button. The Device Manager on my notebook computer indicated a problem with a USB IMAGING DEVICE
  3. Double-clicking on the USB IMAGING DEVICE brings up the Properties. It turned out that the driver for the IBM PC Camera is not installed, as shown in picture below. To install the driver correctly, click on the "Reinstall Driver..." button.
  4. The "Reinstall Driver..." button brings up the Hardware Update Wizard, which will help guide you through installing the correct driver for the IBM PC Camera. The first thing it asks you is whether you would allow it to connect to Windows Update server to search for the software driver. Pick "No, not this time". Click on the "Next >" button to continue.
  5. The next screen asks whether you would like the Hardware Update Wizard to install the software automatically or manually (see picture below). Select "Install from a list or specific location." It will prompt you to find the driver. Remember where I said to download it on the desktop? If you did, it should be right there :)
  6. Because the driver isn't made for Windows XP, it would throw up a warning box shown below. The warning box says that the driver "has not passed Windows Logo testing to verify its compatibility with Windows XP." This warning is really just Microsoft's way of getting you to buy newer hardware. Click on "Continue Anyway"; the IBM PC Camera will work just fine with Windows XP.
  7. Now, the Hardware Update Wizard has installed the driver for the camera, so you can click "Finish" to complete the process.
  8. After closing the Hardware Update Wizard, you will return to the driver properties box. Noticed that the title of the box has changed from "USB IMAGING DEVICE Properties" to "IBM PC Camera Properties". And you will see that the driver and device are now working properly. Click the "Close" button to close this dialog box.
  9. After closing the driver property box, you will see that the Device Manger has been updated as well. It now shows the IBM PC Camera device driver in a working state.
  10. Voila! We're done. Open up skype or whatever you wish to use to show your pretty mug and grab a beer for all the hard effort. If you're not 21, well, get some cider or something.

Hope this helped you!

It doesn't work in my new laptop


A code 10 generally refers to a peice of hardware the is faulty. Assuming all the usb ports have been tried and you have tried on another pc if possible, the camera is not able to start due to a fault, not a software problem. If the camera does work on another pc then the driver you have installed is not suitable for your operating system for the camera to be recognised in Windows, especially if it's Vista as there are still problems and sometimes a WIN XP driver is the answer.
