Question about Microsoft LifeCam VX-3000 Web Camera
I just bought a LifeCam VX-3000 and installed the CD that came with it. It installed with no problems, but when I went to connect the webcam after the installation, it gave the regular installing new hardware icon and said it could not find any driver for the camera on the computer. Microsoft suggested its own site for drivers, and when I try to install it from the website, it says I have it installed already. I have tried reinstalling with the online driver with the same problem. I have a Dell Latitude D620 with Vista 32-bit.
First off, see if the webcam shows up in your device manager. You can access that by right clicking on "Computer" in the start menu, and going to properties.
On the right of that new window, you should see a link for "Device Manager".
Scroll until you see "Imaging Devices", and verify that the camera is even showing up on your system. If it is, go to its properties and driver tab, and verify that it has drivers assigned to it.
If it does, test using the camera in your program of choice. If it is not working, my best advice is when windows searches for the software (where it said it couldnt find any), try to direct it to the directory on the installation CD that has the driver in it.
Please let me know if any of this didnt work to help fix your problem, and we can try something else. Good luck!
