    Hi, I am not sure the computer was built 3 years ago, it runs windows xp, by the way this cam was working until today, i had an older camera software still on the the computer so i decided to uninstall it, by mistake i uninstalled all the cams. so tried to reinstall this one and that's when this problem started.

    i got pretty much through installation but now says cam not plugged in. i don't have the box the cam came in, but i think it is a 5000, it says rightlight technology on the little cam. I bought it less than 2 years ago.

    Thanks for your efforts

    Do you have other computers there? If you will be getting the same problem with other computer then this could be a hardware problem already.

    This could be a USB port problem. Since you already use 2 webcam and its giving you the same issue. Could you plugin a flash drive to your USB. Just to chec kif your computer will read the flashdrive.

Logitech Web cam Messenger


what you can do is uninstall your cam drivers and reinstall again, as soon as your computer recognizes the camera, try following the new device wizard and select install from a list of specific location. this will prompt you with a compatible driver for your cam and select that. then follow all the prompts and click finish. after installing it, restart your computer.
then try it now.

post if this resolved your issue.

Driver not recognised

Usually, I have seen with most USB webcam, they want you to only plug in your webcam after the software ask you to plug in the webcam. If this is the case, uninstall and reinstall (but, do not plug in webcam until the software tells you to).
