1) Some webcams have a focus ring around the lens that can be rotated to sharpen the image. Others may rely on software to zoom in and out to achieve the optimum focal length.
2) Plugging a webcam into a 1.1 USB socket will have an adverse effect on its performance if its a modern cam and designed for 2.0 USB connection
3) Corrupt software will also compromise the quality of the image as will a low bandwidth and lack of memory on your computer.
4) Microsoft have a good hardware support page and might be worth a visit

My webcam's picture is very dark


You will need to place light behind the cam so it lights up your face. Even in daylight most cams show a dark picture. I solved the same problem with a clamp on, adjustable desk lamp

Sony cybershot dsc-w130 keeps showing "reinsert the memory stick" when i try to take a pcture or adjust telephoto when i do it does not make any difference


I have a Sony Cybershot DSC T70 and it keeps saying "Reinsert memory stick" whenever I turn on the camera or slide down the camera lid. Also, whenever I try to view the pictures on my laptop it shows "Please reinsert the memory stick" something along those lines. As I have been researching for the solution, I would have to format the memory card. However, I wouldn't want to lose the pictures as I just took many as from the holiday last week. The only problem is the memory card, I tried using another memory card and it works fine with the camera. There is nothing wrong with the camera.\r\nCan someone please help me how to solve the memory stick problem? It would be great. Ty.
