Hello there

From the start menu, left click on control menu (these are the steps for XP yours might be a little different). Then on the dialog box that pops up, left click on the "Printers and other Hardware" option.

Another dialog box will pop up. Left click on the scanners and cameras option to bring another dialog box up. From there double click with the left mouse key on the icon for your camera. This will bring up the "Scanner and Camera Wizard."

Left click the next key to get to the image capture screen, position the camera and left click on the word "Take Picture" below the image. The image will show up on the scrolling menu next to the image capture part of the box. Select it (left click the small box next to the image to get a check mark in the box) or use the select all option to get all pictures, then left click the next key.

Select the picture destination from the drop down menus that appear and hit the next key to save. The next dialog box will ask what is to be done with the pictures. Select the option in front of the correct choice and hit the next key to bring up the final screen.

From here the picture location will be able to be opened. Left click on finish if finished or select the other appropriate choice. The images should be on the computer and ready to work with.
If there is no scanner and camera wizard available try the next option(if you are using iphoto plus).

Open iPhoto Plus and left click on the file option. From the drop down menu, scroll down to acquire and select source. Left click on select source.

From the dialog box that pops up, select your particular camera by left clicking on the down arrow key and scroll downward until your camera is found. Select the camera from the list by left clicking on it and then left click the ok button. (If your camera is already selected, this step may be unnecessary).

Now left click on the file button again select acquire and then left click on image. From the box that comes up make sure the radial button--the round area before the options--before the word "image" has a dark circle in it indicating it is selected. Then left click on the acquire button.

A dialog box will appear that is titled "acquire pictures from video". Position the camera for what picture is desired then left click on the capture button.

The picture will appear in a drop down menu on the other side of the video feed. Scroll down if need be and select the picture or left click the "select all" button if you would like all of them and then left click get pictures.

Now all the pictures should appear in iPhoto Plus. Save them to your computer with the save option or edit them at your leisure.

Dont know how to turn on the web cam or where to find the controls


Most laptops from major manufacturers (HP, Compaq, Sony, Asus, Acer, Dell, Samsung, etc) that come with web cameras will usually have software to control them.
The cameras are off by default unless a program is accessing them. You can use programs like Skype or video / picture capture software or the webcam control software to access the images. You can also use websites like youtube (you need an account, but select upload video, then live web cam) to test the camera.
The web cam software can be found by searching for "cam" usually, but is often in the folder of the manufacturer's name in the start menu. This will have about all the controls there really is for the web camera. Most just come with some novelty filters to change colors or add "artistic" effects to the video / pictures.
Hope this was helpful. Please leave feedback.

Web Cam


It sounds like a loose connection between the camera and the computer inside the case.

The Video capture Utility says so.

And if you have no picture it comes out black.

Getting error u do have video captureing hardware


Hai,
I think u have a wrong setup for ur web cam.
Try set it up as a web cam and not as a video device.
Video device needs a capture card or a proper driver for the device to work.
Hope u got the idea
