Question about Cameras
Windows crashes when I use quickcam IM with yahoo messenger on my Dell laptop. But it woks fine on my other laptop. Please help. I have a new quick cam sphere mp, and have installed the latest software from the Logitech site, but windows continuously restarts when I try to use the camera? Mark Broadwith I have a problem when I turn on Skype and when I want to change anything at "Video Settings". After I correctly sign up I choose Tools and click Options but when I choose "Video Setting" my computer crashes. My computer in 1 or 2 seconds restarts without that I do anything.
Hello all, Have this same problem and enjoyed other solutions. Here's one that worked for me (from a post on the web that I can no longer find). The beauty of it is that there's no software to download, and no cost: anonymous: Windows XP WIA driver for c2100uz, c3000, c3030 From: Anonymous Category: Category 1 Date: 3/31/03 Time: 8:56:41 PM Remote Name: 18.104.22.168 Comments I skimmed through the forum and didn't find anybody who had pointed this out so here it is: apparently Microsoft included drivers for these cameras with Windows XP but was forced to disable them by olympus for legal reasons. It is easy enough to reenable them and have a WIA (Windows Image Acquisition)driver. Unfortunately your camera will no longer be recognized by camedia master (big loss). First find the file srusbusd.inf in the windows\inf folder, open it with any text editor and make the following changes: olympus digital camera : The section:[Manufacturer];%MfgNikon%=ModelsNikon;%MfgEpson%=ModelsEpson remove this semicolon=>;%MfgOlympus%=ModelsOlympus Must become:[Manufacturer];%MfgNikon%=ModelsNikon;%MfgEpson%=ModelsEpson%MfgOlympus%= ModelsOlympus The section:[ModelsOlympus]remove this semicolon=>;%USB\VID_07B4&PID_010 0.Device%=Olympus,USB\VID_07B4&PID_0 100 must become:[ModelsOlympus]%USB\VID_07B4& PID_0100.Device%=Olympus, USB\VID_07B4&PID_0100 After this, if you have already the Olympus C-2100 in your Device Manager,uninstall it and run again the new hardware wizard. Let Windows XP find the correct driver. Windows will attempt to frighten you with a catastropheprophecy. Just ignore it and go on (it works perfectly).You're done. Now your Windows XP will see your Olympus C-2100 UltraZoom without any additional software. This info was borrowed from http://www.nxtcentury.com/olympus_digital_camera.html :P: Clearly, all of you need to start using more of your brains. The things you complain about are mostly user error and not taking the initiative to educate yourselves!!! A word of advice: if it has buttons and costs a lot and you can't get it to work, DON'T BUY IT. Unless you want to have a 7 year old help you figure it out LOL!!!

I had the same problem and managed to fix it by simply upgrading zoom browser to the latest version ( try the canon website)

The simple solution to this problem is that no drivers are required. This camera is treated as a removable (secondary) drive just as if it was a USB thumb drive or external hard drive.
First go to settings on the camera by rotating the dial to the wrench icon.
Turn the camera on and select Set-Up 2
Your camera is now ready to use with your computer.
Now plug your camera into your computer and check under My Computer for the drive to show. You can now copy files over to your computer from the camera.
If the drive isn't showing you'll have to go into Disk Management to view it
Disk Management is under Administrartive Tools located in your Control Panel (or Start Menu if you have it set to show there)
Select Administrative Tools
On the left hand side click Disk Management (or on the right click Storage then Disk Management)
Finally you can now Right Click the cameras drive and chose Open
