Question about Microsoft LifeCam VX-1000 Webcam

1 Answer

My webcam comes up as a black square if used on windows live.

I have the latest drivers and all that for my lifecam and it works fine if i use the desktop one so i can use it to record or take pictures, but as soon as i use it on windows live messenger it just comes up with a black screen and i can't see it and neither can my friend.
