Follow the instructions below and it will work.

Disconnect 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.

Then to use it on the Web, do this.
Web Camera's have to be setup on the program they are to be used with. Just installing the
camera on your computer does not set it up to broadcast on messengers or Skype.

Each program has Options that have to be setup in order for the Audio and Video to function properly.

A. Skype Setup:
After downloading and installing Skype

http://www.skype.com/intl/en-gb/download/skype/windows/beta/downloading/

set it up as follows:
Go to Tools, then Options, and click on Audio Settings and set the Microphone and Speakers to the computer Audio Card.
Then click on the Video Settings.
The camera, if Installed Properly, it will come up and show a video picture.
Then, on the bottom of the page click save.
The camera and audio should function properly. Your friends and Family will now be able to see and hear you.

B. Yahoo Setup:
After downloading and installing Yahoo Messenger

http://www.soft32.com/download_30.HTML

set it up as follows:
Go to Messenger at the top left and click on it.
Next go down to Preferences and click on it.
Next Calling and Devices on the right and set the Microphone and Speakers to the computer Audio Card.
Next go to the Test Audio section and (in blue writing) click on "Open the call setup assistant" and follow the instructions on the left window.

C. Windows Live Messenger:

http://download.live.com/Messenger

After you start Windows Live Messenger, expand the view by clicking on the square on top left next to the red X.
Then on the Windows Live messenger window on the right side, click on " "Show Menus." And then click on "Show the Menu Bar".
Next go to the Menu Bar on right side, click on " "Action."
Go to "TOOLS" and click "Audio and Video Setting" and follow the instructions.
NOTE: Your audio and video should work. Enjoy.
When done both the Audio and Video will function properly so you can chat and see family or friends you are connected to.

D. AIM (AOL) Messenger:

http://dashboard.aim.com/aim

On the VIM sign-in window click on Edit.
Then click on Settings Enhanced IM.
Next click on Enhanced IM.
Then click on Audio Video.
The Audio and Video portion has drop downs so you can select the proper audio card and video camera installed in you computer.
The Audi Video drop downs are
Microphone
Speaker
Camera
The audio and camera should function now.
Additional information to use with VIM settings.
Adjust Your Audio and Video Settings:
In order to adjust your audio and video settings, please follow the steps given below:
1. Click the Audio and Video Settings button directly below the My Buddy or My Camera window. If you are currently
Participating in an AOL Live Video IM session, a message will display: You must disconnect the current AOL Live Video IM
Conversation before running setup. Would you like to disconnect now? Click the Yes button.
2. The Audio and Video Tuning Wizard will appear to help you verify that your camera, speakers and microphone are working
Properly. Follow the on-screen prompts.
Notes:
The first time you use AOL Live Video IM, a message will display: Would you like to first check your audio and video settings? Click the Yes button.
The Audio and Video Tuning Wizard will appear to help you verify that your camera, speakers and microphone are working properly.
Follow the on-screen prompts.
images in AOL Live Video IM may appear reversed, or as a mirror image (text may appear backwards) when you look at your own camera feed or at the
Picture-in-picture (PIP) display.
After making the settings your ready for a chat and video talk with your Family and Friends.
Hope this helps. Bud

I got a behringer c-1u mic and I plugged my USB in the pc and it says no drivers are installed for this device and also the green light of the mic flashes soon as u connect it then dims out and stops...


Either you haven't yet installed the drivers (usually a CD that comes with - or can be downloaded from Behringer Website),

AND/OR your bios settings dis-allow plug-and-play USB devices. Restart your PC and enter Setup to check..

AND/OR your microphone is bad, have you had success with it on another PC?

AND/OR your USB Port is bad - are you plugging directly into the PC's USB, or a seperate multi-port Hub? I once had a multi-port USB Hub that burned up anything I plugged into it.. Took me about 3 devices to die before I simply changed the hub. Pwoblem solved..

Hope this helps...

Using a USB drive duplicator to make copies of a USB drive


There are times when you have to make multiple copies of the same information on many USB drives. If you are making a few copies like 2-3 then using the ports on your computer will be good enough to make the duplicates, but when it comes to make more duplicated you will want to get a duplicator.

Duplicators will range from around 1:7 (one USB copies to 7 USBs) all the way up to 1:100. These are perfect for corporations that need to give their employees many files and don't have a lot of time to make the duplicated one at a time.

Using a USB drive duplicator what you do is on the tower (or in the accompanying computer software if it is plugged into the computer) set the display to copy, usually there is an enter button that should take you the menu and arrows to help you move through the menu. When you have copy selected plug in the USB you want to duplicate in the port labeled source. And then plug the blank USB drives in to the other ports. Most systems have a green light that lights up when the drive is plugged in properly. When all the green lights are on and all the USB drives you want to duplicate are plugged in.

Hit the enter button and the device will start to work. On the display you will see a few things happening, it will say things like copying... and initializing, and the green lights will flash. When the finalization process is finished the display will tell you that it is safe to remove the USBs. And that's it you are done! It could take you days to do them by hand or just hours to duplicate hundreds of USBs using a duplicator.

My psp won't recognized by the computer every time i insert the usb.


Well does your PSP recongnise other PCs?
Do you have other MSs?
Try other USB ports.
Try other PCs.

So it won't show up when you plug in your PC.. or... does anything pop up when you connect your PSP to your PC?

If this doesn't work, take it to SONY. If your PSP is still under warranty, then the repair is FREE.
.. wait, did this MS come with your PSP when you bought it?

Green light is on mine, but USB port shows no device. When I plug it in, I get "found new device" message, but no icon on my desktop. None of my messengers recognize it either. It does show up in cameras and scanners though...I'm so confused.

Maxtor one Touch 300GB no steady green light


Hi,

The USB Isn,t supplying/providing enough Power to the device.
Search e-bay or similar for a 2 into 1 USB Cable.
Then power the unit with 2 USB Ports on the Computer.
2 x USB Into 2 x Sockets On P.C. 1 x Into Device Drive.
This will be enough power to operate the Device Correctly.

I,ve done this on several external Drives, never failed for Me.
