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

How can i install a usb web camera


If the web camera came with an installation disk, use the disk to install drivers then plug the web camera in a USB port. The computer should recognize it. If it is properly recognized it will work with all applications that support a webcam (Skype, MSN, Google chat..) If it is not recognized and you do not have an installation software, you should go to the manufacturers web site to download appropriate drivers.

I have a Dell 530 S Dell Inspiron. Its Webcam has stopped working. Any solutions


The very first step is of course to check your web cam connection. Most web cams use the USB port to connect to the PC, so check if your USB cable is properly plugged. For build-in web cams this steps does of course not apply. Many new laptops have a build-in web cam. Also try connecting your web cam directly to your PC instead of through a USB hub (if you are using one).

The next thing is to do is to check your Windows Device Manager and see if the hardware is recognized and installed properly.

It might be that the hardware is recognized as a camera, but the right drivers are not installed. The yellow explanation mark will indicate a problem.
Other devices in Windows XP device manager

If the device is not recognized in Windows XP, Right-click the device, and in the pop up menu select Update Driver Software. Then follow the instructions on screen, but make sure you allow Windows to search the web for updated drivers.

In case no driver for the web cam can be found, you can try a third party driver finding program that scans your PC for installed hardware and allows you to install missing drivers.

If this fails, the next step would be to un install the software that came with your web cam. Use the Add or Remove Programs feature in the Control Panel. If that does not work you can use a third party un installer.

After un installing the software, restart your PC and then reinstall the web cam software. In most cases this will solve the problems. Depending on the software, you might need to unplug your web cam during the software installation.If your problem is not fixed then you have to buy a new one.

Hope the above information will be helpful to you.
Thanks.

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.

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
