Webcam driver


Click start control panel-view devices and printers.
You should see your webcam from there.
If you have trouble with your webcam:
Click start control panel-administrative tools-computer management-device manager-scroll down image
devices you could see a yellow question mark ?

right click to reinstall drivers or update driver xp.
Click start right click on
computer select properties device manager scroll to image devices expand right
click to update driver in W7
http://download.cnet.com/2000-20_4.html
on the home page you should
see a search tab just type in what you are looking for IE:
webcam name webcam driver you might have to try a few times to get it right
software if you don\'t have the driver you will need to download one here rather doing a driver hunt, which can take hours.

It might take some time being a freeware driver solution.
note: It will find all of your outdated drivers.
This is a free driver solutions.
This will automatically search for and find the correct driver.
You will have to update every driver individually once you update. You might be
asked whether you want to restart or make a system restore. Point click no to both of these, then continue updating each driver free, then restart once all of the drivers have been updated.
Some webcams and programs require additional software, although that should be installed with the webcam if things are right. But it doesn\'t hurt to check if your Java, Flash and Quicktime software are installed and up to date.
But certainly check your DirectX software, since all video applications, including
webcams, use DirectX for video processing. Try downloading the latest DirectX version and install it (Windows XP: DirectX 9.0c Windows Vista: DirectX 10).

If you still have no webcam installed, Run the "Add a device"application, accessed by clicking on the "Start" button, opening the "Control Panel," and then double-clicking on "Add a device."
The "Add a device" window will open and Windows will search for devices connected to your system but not installed.
Click on the webcam name that shows in the search box and
then click "Next."
Choose whether you want Windows to search for the webcam
device driver using Windows Update over the Internet, or if you\'d prefer to
have the device manager search for the driver using a disc supplied by your
laptop manufacturer. Most drivers can be found on the system recovery disc
included with your laptop, if you choose to add the driver from the provided disc.
Place a check in the box next to your choice and then click "Next" to continue.
Wait while Windows searches from the driver using Windows
Update, if this was your choice.
An active Internet connection is required for Windows to
successfully do this. Allow the computer to install the driver and then reboot
the system for the webcam to become recognized by the system.
Otherwise, you can use the system recovery disc or a driver
downloaded directly from your laptop manufacturer to install the driver without
using the Windows Update search feature.
Open the CD/DVD-ROM drive and insert the system recovery
disc, or place the driver downloaded from the manufacturer in an easily
accessed file directory on your PC, such as on the desktop, or in your "My
Documents" folder.
Choose the option "Install the software automatically
(Recommended)" in the "Add a device" application, and press
"Next" to begin searching for your webcam driver.
The hardware wizard will search the system recovery disc and
install the driver automatically. Press "Finish" to close the wizard
and then reboot the computer to allow recognition of the webcam.
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.
Click the "Next" button to install the
driver, then reboot the computer to add webcam functionality.

Can't transfer photos from camera to laptop. Says program not oladed


You don't need any special software.

The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.

Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or, despite what I said first, you can use any photo cataloging program such as Picasa ( http://picasa.google.com ).

RECOVER DELETED PHOTOS


You can recover deleted photos from camera with asoftech photo recovery which helped me before. You can download trial for free
http://www.softpedia.com/get/System/Back-Up-and-Recovery/Asoftech-Photo-Recovery.shtml

Please be noted that your camera memory should show as a drive letter in your explorer, if not, you need to take out your memory card and connect using a card reader, or plug-in to card reader slot if there's any on your computer.

Don't have a problem with my camera. My laptop doesn't have a CD drive, so can't install software that came with the camera. What do I do?


If you are using a Windows OS on your laptop, you don't need the software that came with the camera. Just connect your camera to the laptop, the drivers should automatically install, and the laptop should give you the option to download the pictures using Windows Photo Gallery.
If you really want the software from the camera's manufacturer for some reason, you can use your laptop to go to their website and download and install the software. I figure why add another program to my computer that does the same thing as another program that's part of the operating system.

Camera records regardless of mode setting.


Possible stuck button on the camera.
That may be due to some kind of juice, or drink or some such thing getting into the button area.
It may also be due to the fact that the trigger button is not releasing quickly enough.
This will need repairs, and may be more than what you want to spend. For that reason selling it as is or for parts on a site such as Ebay may be your best out.

I've researched this heavily myself, and came to the conclusion that yes it can be done. There is certain software, but the software is very involved and not worth the trouble. In reality, using a digital camera is way overkill as a webcam. Really, just buy a webcam. In fact, here's a very inxepensive but high quality camera (bought one for myself at around 8 bucks including shipping). Just make sure to read the user reviews about downloading updated driver software for it. That's why it's so cheap. It's store returns of a high quality camera that just needs an updated driver off the internet:

How can i use the camera as a webcam?


I heavily researched this myself, and came to the conclusion that it's not easily done, it's overkill, and it's not really worth the effort. Instead went on Amazon and got the following very nice webcam for 8 bucks including S&H. If you do the same, make sure you follow the advice given in the user reviews to install downloaded/driver software for the camera.
http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000P9T5SO
The reason the camera is so cheap is that it is open-package store returns due to defective driver software. The camera is actually high quality, and just needs updated drivers which you can easily download as the reviews state and show how.
