Microsoft lifecam cinema won't work with windows xp, downloaded updates still no joy any solutions to why this kit wont work? Keeps coming up send error report. When opening the camera via my computer...


I have the exact same Camera....... and I have gotten it to work on Windows XP just fine.....
here are a few troubleshooting tips to help you figure out if its just settings
1: go to another application that can use a webcam (ie: MSN messenger, Yahoo Messenger, Facebook) and see if the Cam will work.
2: try downloading alternate software to manage your webcam ( http://www.manycam.com/)
if the above two options dont work with the webcam.. it may be the cam itself.

Sorry, no Webcam was found on your system


You might receive the "Sorry, no webcam was found on your system" error for any of the following reasons:
  • You don't have a webcam installed on your system.
  • You have a webcam installed, but it is not plugged in to your computer.
  • Another application is using your webcam. Close the other applications and try again.
  • Other applications might have crashed or not released the camera. Try rebooting your system.
  • Your camera might not be installed correctly. Try reinstalling your camera.
  • Yahoo! Messenger is using the incorrect camera device. Try changing the camera source.
  • Your camera might not be configured correctly. Try configuring your camera.
  • Your camera is not compatible with Yahoo! Messenger. Take the webcam compatibility test.
Where's the Contact Customer Care button? With so many improvements to Messenger since the version you're using (lots more features and reliability), we figured you're ready to move up. So get your upgrade and with the new version, rest assured if you have questions, you’ll find that friendly button on its help pages. Thanks for helping u....

Logitech quick cam communicate stx on Vista - microphone not working


Why isn't the microphone on my camera working?
trnsp.gif Answer The microphone may not work because of a hardware or configuration problem. To determine if it's a hardware problem, test the microphone in Sound Recorder.

  1. Click "Start," > "Programs" ("All Programs" for Windows XP) > "Accessories" > "Entertainment" > "Sound Recorder."
  2. Click the Record button and speak into the microphone of the camera. You should see the green line move, indicating the application is picking up sound.
  3. Click the Stop button.
  4. Click the Play button. If there is no sound at playback, check to make sure the correct device is selected.
    1. Click "Edit," then "Audio Properties."
    2. Make sure Logitech is listed as the Preferred device for "Sound recording."
The microphone may also be defective. To test this, try the camera on another USB enabled system.
If you can record sound in Sound Recorder, but not in the QuickCam application, try setting the Logitech Microphone as the Preferred device in Audio Properties.
