Question about Logitech Webcam

2 Answers

Can these cameras go south by being bumped, because XP knows that it is there when I plug it in, but the software does not find it and there is no light on the camera itself? We recently moved and I am wondering if it got tapped.??

They are normally fairly robust but the lead can get damaged

Try loading the software yourself
Visit the Logitech website and browse the photo gallery for your model and click on the photo to navigate to the support page.
Note - Older models on page 2 - look for the link at the bottom right of page 1 and click on it "Still can't find your product?"

http://www.logitech.com/index.cfm/405/&cl=us,en?prodcrid=405

In addition to the Logitech installer you will need to check the support software - Microsoft DirectX . This comes pre-loaded on most Windows computers but has to be updated - I am currently on version 11
To start the DirectX Diagnostic Tool, click 'Start', click 'Run', type dxdiag in the Open box, and then click OK
Run through the tabs checking the 'notes' windows for information
The version will be shown on the 'Systems' tab

Procedure to re-install Logitech software
Close all programs while uninstalling - downloading and uploading software
Disconnect your webcam
Uninstall the current webcam software on your computer
Restart computer
Download the Installation package from Logitech
Run the installer and choose your options during the installation - You may not want Logitech Chat but the Desktop icon for the webcam toolbar is a must.
Connect your webcam when prompted.

Test your webcam here to make sure it broadcasts ok - Hit 'Allow' in the top window and check your cam in the left hand panel.

Not working ? - troubleshoot your drivers and software - get your cam working before moving on

Working OK ?

Set your webcam mic as default ( if it has a built in mic)

Plug in the webcam

TEST SPEAKERS
Right click on speaker icon in System Tray or from Control Panel
Select "Playback Devices"
The speaker icon ( checked as working) and volume level graph should be visible
Right click on the volume graph and click "Test"
Left hand speakers followed by right hand should be heard

SET DEFAULT & TEST MIC
Click "Recording" tab.
Right click on the volume graph and select 'Show disabled devices' and 'Show disconnected devices'
To set required (webcam) mic as default - click on mic font to highlight and click "Properties"
In lower dropbox display "Use this device enable" click 'OK'
Click "Levels" tab and ramp up sliders ( adjust to suit later)
Return to "Recording". Test mic by speaking and make sure volume graph displays

Restart computer

Testimonial: "Thanks very much, but I had just gotten Logitech to update a patch, which got the thing working again. I guess it did not get bumped too hard!! :-)"

Largan chameleon xp software doesn't work ( mr photo 1.6 ) on my windows xp sp3... HELP !! I can't take pictures off my camera !! Camera works fine.


1) XP should recognise you camera as a new hard drive or mass storage device. Plug it in, click on my computer and see if there's a new device there.

If so double click on the device, cut or copy and paste pictures to your computer.

2) Get a universal card reader, plug you camera card into that and the reader into your PC. Again your looking for a new device in my computer.

3) Uninstall and re-install the software.

Xp home doesn't recognize


I don't think XP pro vs XP home would make a difference here. Did your camera come with a driver disk? You might need to install some software for your computer to recognize the camera.

Another easier way is to just get a card reader. I picked one up for about 15 bucks and it reads every kind of card imaginable. I use Google's Picasa software (www.picasa.com) on Windows, it recognizes when a memory card has been plugged in and goes right to the screen where you can start importing your pics.
