How to install my microsoft lifecamVX-1000 inorder to chat my friends with web cam?


to chat with ur friends u will need the foll:
WebCam, Mic, and Speakers.
Alss u will need to have either Yahoo Msgr, or MSN Mgr etc
u need to connect the Webcam using the USB port and once the Webcam is detected by your OS (i assume u use Windows) u may have to install the driver for the Webcam(the CD that came along with the Webcam will have the driver)
inster the CD in the CDR/DVD drive and let the machine install the device....once it's doen u r set

Mic and Speakers r normally Plug and Play devices and they just need to be connected to PC/Laptops sound card/Mic ports in you machine and they will automaticaly work.

Unexpected error


Hello Josh,

Vista Business, great. So you are coming up with an error. I suspect this could be an issue with the disk being dirty or scratched or the CD drive is messed up. Let me give you a link to the software and you can download it and install it that way.http://www.microsoft.com/hardware/download/download.aspx?category=ICE. Let me know if this solves the issue.

Thanks,
Armymason
