Question about Jazz DV-179 Digital Camera

Mic not recognized when used as a web cam

I have no problem setting up this cam as a web cam, pic only, but I cannot get my pc to recognize that his cam has a built in mic. When I use the Audio & Video setup, microphone setup, my drop down menu shows logitech (when that cam is connected to the pc) Nvidia, or none, but NO Video Capture X, but my Web Cam setup gives me: none, logitech and Video Capture X. I know the sound feature on this camera works as I use it all the time as a voice recording device. Any suggestion as to how I can get the mic workable when used as a web cam? Thanks

When installing a Web-Cam make sure your old cam has been uninsulated.

When you set up a new Web-Cam for your computer go under to the computers Start up Key, click the "Computer" button, and you will see a option to pick from. Click "Control Panel" and a list of installed programs, and accessories installed in your computers memory will come up. Find your old Web-Cam under the installed "Device Manager" icon.
Uninstall your old cam, and make sure the New one IS NOT plugged in at this point. After you uninstall the old one, you can then PLUG in the new cam, go back to "Device Manager" and click on "View Hardware and Devices" and your computer should recognize you have new hardware plugged into one of your USB ports, and a balloon should pop up, and Click that ballon, your computer SHOULD read and install the Cam, if not use your "Device Manager" and IF a disk came with your Cam, put it into your computer at this point if you already havent. Your PC should recognize what you are tring to do, and install the Cam. Hope this helps, if not type Web Cam into the search engine in your computers search tab, while under the Device Manager, and it will tell you step by step on how to do lots of things.

Unable to download photos from digital camera to PC. PC not recognising the camera.


This is a common problem with the digital cam , probably the cable that connects to your camera going to your PC has a problem or the pic bridge of your PC try to use a different divice that will generate output to your pc or try to save pics on your memory card and then insert it to the card reader of your PC . If that works the PC can recognized your pic format all you have to do is to call the service center of your camera if its still in warranty.

My laptopn is will recognize not my Kodak Camera..

Don't worry, it's supposed to trun off when you plug it in. To get your computer to recognize it you need to download and install the drivers for it. Download it here. Also you need to press the red "Share" button before you plug it in.

USB Device not recognized

if the camera has memory cards (sD or xD or MMC) you can download pictures on the memory card then use a memory card reader with your PC to copy them. memory card readers are cheep and should do the job.

How do i use as web cam?

I have one of these cameras and I can tell you that they should be sold in bubblegum machines for $1.00. There really isn't any practical uses for it other than very low grade pics. The manual was very roughly translated into English and hard to understand. As for using as a webcam, you will be very disappointed in lack of picture quality. I tried it through MSN with minimal success. It simply does not get recognized 90% of the time because of the poor electronic interface. Sorry
