Hey guys, I have a friend thats using this webcam. She is having problems with the volume. It seems to be really high, so much so i can hear a pin drop and a very anoying loud rushing sound. Im not sure where the best place to start is and if there is a way of adjusting the volume of the wecams mic. She did have this problem a while ago and seemed to fix it by sheer chance but cant remember how. She also uses an ear piece and headphones with a built in mic. Any thought? No really that technical so go easy lol.

Re: volume too high
Have her go to Control Panel and click on SOUNDS, then AUDIO . When the window comes up Click on Speakers, then adjust the volume by sliding the volume control to thye right. While she is there have here put a check on SHOW in Task Bar. Then click ok. Hope that will be of some help. Bud

If she can hear you - your mic is fine The most likely cause would be her mic or your speakers - did you make your speakers default in Skype? Vista 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

you may have a webcam that is not vista compatable. If the drivers are not on creatives website for your cam, for vista, you are suckered. Try swapping your cam with a friend or a recycle website for a one that is vista compatable. best of luck!
go into your settings,look for sound and audio devices?go into the audio file,and look for default device and look for your sound card which should be in the column,all 3 should read the same,if not just schroll down and find them,go into advance and put all the settings to full,then go into volume and advance,right click on options,then go into properties and look for mic volume and tick it,and if you then go into your msn,there should be a program thats tests your mic for you.ok?
I'm not 100% sure it's the microphone in your case, since I am experiencing the same problem right now with another microphone. I borrowed a working headset from my friend and it is not working either. My volume is up like yours and I can barely hear myself. I am updating the drivers soon and I'll let you know if that fixes it.
