Disconnectthe Camera from the USB port and reinstall the CD or Downloaded softwareprogram. When the program asks you to connect the camera to theUSB port, do so and it should work.
Thento use it on the Web, do this.
Web Camera’s have to besetup on the program they are to be used with. Just installing the cameraon your computer does not set it up to broadcast on messengers or Skype.
Each program has Options that have to be setup in order forthe Audio and Video to function properly.
A. Skype Setup:
After downloading and installing Skype (http://www.skype.com/intl/en-gb/download/skype/windows/beta/downloading/) set it up as follows:

  1. Go to Tools, then Options, and click on Audio Settings and set the Microphone and Speakers to the computer Audio Card.
  2. Then click on the Video Settings.
  3. The camera if Installed Properly will come up and show a video picture.
  4. Then, on the bottom of the page click on Save.
The camera and audio should function properly. Yourfriends and Family will now be able to see and her to you.
B. Yahoo Setup:
After downloading and installing Yahoo Messenger (http://www.soft32.com/download_30.html) set it up as follows:
  1. Go to Messenger at the top left and click on it.
  2. Next go down to Preferences and click on it.
  3. Next Calling and Devices on the right and set the Microphone and Speakers to the computer Audio Card.
  4. Next go to the Test Audio section and (in blue writing) click on “Open the call setup assistant” and follow the instructions on the left window.

  3. Next go to the Menu Bar on right side, click on “ “Action.”

The first thing to try would be to right-click on lifecam.exe and run it as administrator. If that does not resolve the problem. Then open Device manager. Start->Run-> In the run box type in devmgmt.msc and hit enter. See if the camera has been detected under imaging devices and let me know

Microsoft LifeCam vx 3000?


According to the reading I just did, neither Windows Live Messenger or AOL Instant Messenger for Mac OS X have viable webcam support, particularly in the area of sending webcam from Mac to PC. I suggest both you and the person you are trying to webcam with download Skype, from  http://www.skype.com/download/skype/macosx/

If you have any further issues after this, don't hesitate to comment and ask for help again, there are other possible problems I could help you solve.

Lifecam not connected


Try restarting your computer. You may also try connecting it on a different USB port then make sure you receive a "Found New Hardware Message" when you connected it.

Driver for lifecam vx1000


I assume since you mention ' new compuer ' that you are talking about a Vista computer. It should make no difference as the site I am about to send you to mentions Vista and XP o/s drivers for your webcam.
Try this site and I'm sorry for the delay, I don't check my messages nearly as much as I should.

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.
