Question about Microsoft LifeCam VX-1000 Webcam

Microsoft lifecam issue

Hello, I installed Microsoft Lifecam VX1000 and it used to work fine. There was also a virtual drive in the windows explorer which shows the images within the explorer window. I unplugged the cam before removing one of my hard disk drives and plugged the cam back, but I lost the virtual drive "Lifecam" and then on the camera was not working. I managed to reinstall the camera software and now it works fine. The virtual drive is named Life cam #2. But now the problem is that there is a new drive in my explorer. When I click on it, it says the drive is not formatted and if I want to format it now. But I cannot format it, it pops up a message Windows cannot format this drive. I am not able to see this drive in the disk partition software. So I believe it is the old virtual drive created by the Lifecam software. Is there any way to remove this? Sorry for making this description so long. Thanks in advance for your support

Partitioning software works with REAL Physical hard drives, not with virtual drives. Virtual drives are nonsense and should never be used to store data or images that one considers important. In this case, chances are your webcam selected some portion of your physical memory and called it a virtual hard drive, thus lessening both your computer's physical memory that could be used for other tasks and also making it impossible for you to retrieve your images or data from the virtual drive once the webcam was removed from its USB connection. Before removing the webcam from USB, you should have been advised to back-up your images to the REAL physical hard drive in whatever partitioning scheme you use on your hard drive, i.e. partition C:, D:, E:, etc.
Never but NEVER allow software to make important decisions for you, and Never use a virtual drive for transitory information that is easily corrupted but still considered important by you.
Your explanation was NOT to long, in fact it was the length of explanation that you gave that allowed me to fully address your issue

Lifecam vx1000 not working after installation.


Make sure that the camera is plugged in and that the software is actually installed(check your start menu for Microsoft Lifecam).

If you didn't restart after you installed the software do that.

Go into My Computer and look in there for an icon that is labeled something like Microsoft Lifecam vx-1000. If you see that, you are connected to the camera -- its plugged in. If you don't see it, plug it into different usb slots. You can try to Open (double click) the Microsoft Lifecam VX-1000 icon to see if it starts a video feed.

Run the software and see what happens, I believe there is a setup wizard that will help you configure some things.
