I am running Win-7, Skype 4.2.0.169 (latest)with the latest drivers for Microsoft's VX-3000 camera. Skype says unsupported camera. Any suggestions other than getting a 'skype-supported camera'?

It may be a Windows 7 issue
Try using the software in Compatibility Mode
Right click on the webcam icon on your desktop or the webcam file from 'All Programs' - select 'Properties'
Select the 'Compatibility' tab
Select 'Compatibility Mode'
Use the dropbox to show the OS you have successfully used before
Click OK
Restart your computer

    FYmickydee, Thank you for your suggestions.

    I found a solution in another forum. Make sure that the Microsoft LifeCam VX-3000 SOFTWARE is NOT running. This solved my problem.

    Just to finalise the solution - How do you disable the Microsoft software without uninstalling it?

I cant open my cam


In order to open your webcam you have to install Microsoft LifeCam VX-3000 Personal Web Camera driver or software. If already installed just open yahoo messenger latest version and skype, there you can test or try if your installed webcam is working.

Check with Microsoft for any additional software you may need - for example running a Logitech webcam requires Directx in addition to the Logi software

Visit this site - fill in your cam details and check out the readme link for all the issues relating to your model

Microsoft Lifecam VX-3000-unknown video error on Skype


I tried the skype link given in Solution #1.

None of Skype's suggestions helped.

The problem child: Windows 7 (all updated) and current Skype.

I installed DirectX per Skype's suggestion.

Also found this link to MicroSoft driver for W7:

http://www.microsoft.com/hardware/download/DownloadResult.aspx?category=ICE&type=LifeCam&name=68A-00001&os=Win7_3264&lang=en

It's working at the moment. But the camera was working previously with this setup. Time will tell.
