I tryed hooking up my easy cam on my new laptop its a window vista and it keeps saying d-link cif webcam and thats not the cam how do i fix this cause i cant get on cam nor take pics


Most Web Cams will NOT work with VISTA !!!
Microsoft forgot to add driver's in Vista for most hardware. r you need to buy a cam specifically for Vista and if you do it will work on other operating systems as well...

Quite a few of these problems are addressed in Windows 7...

Good Luck!

Having downloaded the file you'd need to extract the files from inside the archive to a folder and then point windows at the folder with the extracted files in it.

You can download software from the link below to do the extraction:
http://www.win-rar.com/download.html

Once installed just double click the .RAR file and drag the files within out to a new folder. Follow the instructions above pointing windows to look for files in your new folder.
