software if you dont have the driver you will need to download one here are a few you could try although i could not find one for windows 7


Some webcams and programs require additional software, although that should be installed with the webcam if things are right.

But is does not harm 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).

Im getting "camera no found"


The error message "Webcam Not Found, Connect USB Device Message" or a message stating to plug in a webcam, indicates that there is an issue with thewebcam hardware.

The system will need to be serviced to correct this issue.

If the error is just regarding webcam not found, the drivers and the Application has to be installed.

On Startup, I get an error message: C:\Program Files\Camera Assistant Software for Toshiba\CEC_MAIN.exe Please reinstall program I have tried to reinstall the driver and it still does not work


to stop getting the error message, type msconfig into the run/search box.
Go to the startup tab and untick the entry for the camera.
Uninstall the software, run a cleaner like CCleaner, run the registry cleaner.
Download the latest version of the software and try again .
