Mic doesn't work on Creative Notebook Cam

I can't find what setting to change to enable the mic on my Creative Notebook Cam. The product shows up in my sound settings (XP) and on Skype, but the mic doesn't work. The video camera does work. Suggestions?

I have creative vfo520 webcam ,when i start my cam it shows very dark video...i doest not change any settings i dont know what went wrong with my cam......now i tried by best by changing settings


unplug delete the cam from your system, including the software/drivers you might have for it.
reboot your pc
install the drivers from creative website or from the cd
restart the pc
plug in the cam

if that doesn't help - i guess the cam is dying - get a new one

CONFIGURE TO SKYPE

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.

Not working ? - troubleshoot your drivers and software - get your cam working before moving on

Working OK ?

CONFIGURE TO SKYPE
Connect webcam
Its good practice to disconnect and re-connect your webcam before you start (To reboot the webcam software) - if you have been using it elsewhere the SKYPE 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.

Start Skype.
On the 'Tools' menu, click 'Options'.
In the navigation pane of the Skype 'Options' window, click 'Audio Settings'
Run down the list setting your defaults
Select your webcam as the default microphone.
Make a free test call
Click 'Save'
In the navigation pane of the Skype Options window, click Video Settings.
This will launch your webcam
Adjust quality of picture in 'Settings'
Check the correct webcam is shown as default
Click Save
Test your webcam by making a Skype test call.

I can hear my friend but she can't hear me. Also, my picture is fuzzy to her while she is quite clear to me.


Fuzzy pic ?
Try rotating the focus ring around the lens while the camera is running.
Some webcams are designed for USB 2.0 ports and older PC's have 1.1
If all else fails re-install latest software
