Question about Microsoft LifeCam VX-6000 (68C-00001) Webcam

1 Answer

Installation issue my VX6000 used to work on old PC. When I upgraded to new AMD Athlon 64 x2 dual (Running same XP software) the webcam isn't correctly recognised. Plug & play says found Camera USB20 (used to say found Lifecam VX6000) then the prompt asks to load drivers, I use the manufacturer disc and it cant find the drivers even though i manually force them in.... Have tried every combination of removing and reinstalling, cam first, then software first etc...cant help but think issue must be elsewhere. Ideas?

Normal 0 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

I used twinkle cam successfully in windows xp. I have upgraded to windows 7. How do I get the driver or will anything work?


According to http://www.chicony.com.tw/download/di/driver.asp , the available drivers were written in 2004. Chicony has stopped supporting their cameras for newer Windows OS versions. I suspect they never made a 64-bit version of the driver for XP 64-bit.

If you had the 32-bit version of Windows 7, you might be able to use the compatibility mode to install the driver. To check your version, click on Start > Control Panel > System and Security > System. Look for your Windows version and check if it says x64. If you see that in the description, you have the x64 bit version. Otherwise, right-click on the driver file from the above site (after extracting the files from the zip file). Choose Properties and the Compatibility tab. Check the box for always Run this program in the compatibility mode and set it to Windows XP in the drop-down menu. You may need to repeat this on the camera software as well.

If you have a 64-bit version Windows Home Premium, you may be better off upgrading to Windows 7 Pro or Ultimate. Then you can download and install Virtual PC and the XP mode, if your hardware can handle that software. This gives a virtual version of the 32-bit version XP that will run your camera. (The CPU needs to have virtualization support and it has to be enabled in the BIOS. Then you need enough memory to give the virtual XP at least 512MB -1GB of memory.) If you already have Windows 7 Pro or Ultimate, just use XP mode. Other virtual PC software exists but they require a licensed version of XP. (If you can find a valid license.) The only issue I've found is that files saved to the C: drive in one OS can't be accessed by the other OS. You have to transfer the files with an external drive, flash drive or burn the file to optical disc.

Dual boot systems with XP and Windows 7 can be set up if you have the XP license. Then pick the OS you need when you boot up the computer. This requires you to repartition the hard drive or have two bootable hard drives. Make sure to back up before partitioning the drive.

I wish that I had better news for you.

Intel Home PC Camera CS331 Webcam work with XP?


It will if you have the software upgrade cd-rom published years ago by intel when xp first appeared. Intel no longer supports any cameras considered "toys". The old cd-rom that came with the camera may work if you use compatiblity mode and select windows 98. The software does not work too well on the old cd so its best to use the upgrade. In order to find the upgrade cd it will be necessary to either go to ebay or a friend or put and ad in the paper.

I upgraded my pc from xp to windows 7 and now my webcam doesn't work. I tried reinstalling the software and the drivers and still no solution.


Hi,

If you upgraded your operating system to windows 7, you need to install the device driver which is compatible windows 7. I think you installed the same driver that you had before.

First, un install your current web-cam driver completely if you have installed before.

You can find the new driver for your device (Logitech QuickCam Communicate STX) clicking this link.

Select file 32 bit or 64 bit depending on your PC and then press the download software button.

Save it one of your folder in your PC and then install the driver clicking on that downloaded file.

Hope this helps.

You may have lost some support software when you had the virus - try and find out what software you need to run the webcam - contact Microsoft if necessary

MS VX 6000 LifeCam locks up


Check to see how much memory you have installed in you computer. If it low amount this will cause the camera to freeze the computer. Hope this helps. Bud
