Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

Webcam I was given a Mikomi webcam for use with MSN. I've downloaded the software and when I plug in the webcam my computer recognizes it. A window pops up for the webcam (which I assume should be the picture) but it is just a white box. I have Windows XP and I think I have the required memory. What could be the problem?

    No, the white box is a separate window on the screen. It is not in the msn window.

Does the white box appear within MSN?

    I would uninstall the software the came with the web camera, unplug the camera, and restart the computer.



    Once the computer is back up, plug the camera back in and let windows search for the drivers. If it ask for the drivers on the cd go ahead and install it.



    Windows XP and Vista contain a lot of built in programs to operate the web camera so most vendor programs are unessesary unless your using windows 98

I have a new webcam - mikomi DC - 7130 & its installed on my laptop but will not show up on my msn, can anyone PLEASE help?


Test your webcam here to make sure it broadcasts ok - Hit 'Allow' in the top window and check your cam in the left hand panel.

Having proved your cam is working ,you can configure it to WLM (MSN)

CONFIGURE SOFTWARE to MSN
Its good practice to disconnect and re-connect your webcam before you start - if you have been using it elsewhere the MSN software may have difficulty in locating it, even if you exited the previous program correctly.
The reason being, the webcam software can remain hooked-up to a program and needs to be rebooted.
Mine, I just unplug it from the USB and plug it back in to reboot the software.
If yours is integral with the computer you will have to re-start the computer, use a keyboard shortcut or disable / enable the webcam from the Device Manager.

Open MSN
Click 'Open Menu'
From 'Tools; navigate to, and click, 'Audio and Video setup'
Set your speakers
Click 'Test' - if OK, move on.
Set your mic as default
Use the slider to set volume and test.
Click 'Next'
This takes you to the video setup
Your webcam should be broadcasting - (if not - make sure the webcam is set as default - restart MSN)
Use 'Webcam Settings'to fine tune the picture.
Click 'Finish'

When I plug in the webcam, it says USB DEVICE NOT RECOGNIZED


These camera seem to be delicate. Call Microsoft support number that is on the documentation and they will send you another one. I did this and the replacement VX-3000 works perfectly.

The type of pc is not as important as the type of webcam at this point. The story also needs more details.

If you had a Logtec webcam and at first it only worked with its custom made software, what did you do to make it work with MSN?
----------------
Based of the info provided, I would
1. uninstall all cam software while the cam is unpluged,

2. Reboot the pc. Then plug the cam in.

3. When windows detects the cam, it will ask for drivers, do not click on search on windows update website, click the option to choose from a specific location and then browse to the cd provided.

4. Try and load msn now. The msn website or the cam company sometimes have a patch to make the cam and the messenger work together. I would check the cam website before looking around the microsoft site.

UNPLUG the cam. Uninstall all software and drivers related to it. Reboot. Install software and drivers. Just AFTER instaling software plug the cam back in. I hope that helps you.
