Question about Logitech QuickCam Communicate STX Personal Web Camera

1 Answer

Cannot store video

My STX seems to work fine but will not store video. I can get it to store 1 frame and even this disappears. The MVW file appears in the directory but then disappears. Photos work ok.

Any help appreciated

Have you tried to move the files to another directory? It would seem the software only keeps these files temporarily. There might be a setting in the software to prevent this deletion.

If you have 2 cam programs loaded on the same pc you may have a conflict. I would suggest you make a trial with your favourite and uninstall the other software. As a logitech user you have the advantage of being able to launch the toolbar and running the cam from there. You can also use the logitech forum ( they don't answer questions about chat programs) but you can ask about conflicts and your specific problems.The forum is accessed from the toolbar ( blue circle with question mark )
You can access logitech from the webcam toolbar - its the last symbol (logo with 'logitech' under.) They have email and telephone help as well.

Finally, have you tried another browser? Download a spare browser and use it without add-ons or plug-ins, Make it your default and give it a trial.

No, its not a Skype issue. You may just need to download the correct software for your Logitech camera. You can download it HERE.

Next do a clean install..This is different from a regular install. Please follow the procedure carefully.

Removing the software and reinstalling it using a "clean boot" may resolve the symptoms you are experiencing. Booting clean is a way to eliminate programs from conflicting with installation of software.

1. Unplug the camera from the computer. Later you will be prompted by the software to plug in the camera; do so at that time only.
2. Open the Windows Control Panel.
3. Open the Add / Remove Programs window.
4. Locate the listing for the software and remove it. When prompted to remove the camera drivers files, click Yes.

The following is the procedure for a 'clean boot'. I am assuming that you have XP. If you have a different OS, just let me know and I will send you the appropriate procedure to boot clean in that OS.

1. Click Start --> Run --> Type MSCONFIG --> Click OK
2. On the General tab, choose Selective Startup
3. Uncheck Process SYSTEM.INI file
4. Uncheck Process WIN.INI file
5. Uncheck Load Startup Items
6. Click on the Services tab
7. At the bottom, check Hide All Microsoft Services
8. Uncheck all boxes in the window or click the button labeled Disable All
6. Click OK
7. Click Restart

After restarting, reinstall the downloaded software. Next, do the following:

1. Click Start --> Run --> Type MSCONFIG--> Click OK
2. Replace checkmarks in the items that you previously removed them from.
3. On the General tab, choose Normal Startup
4. Click OK
5. Click YES, when asked to restart your computer

Hope that helps...Should you have any further questions, please feel free to post them here.

P.S. Before you assign a rating, please make sure that the issue is resolved or you are satisfied. If not, please post back as to what you did, and/or any other questions you may have, and I will try to assist you as best I can. Please do not assign an ‘Inappropriate’ or ‘Thanks for trying’ rating if your issue is not resolved after the first response itself, as sometimes a bit of to and fro dialogue may be necessary before we can find a fix or an answer to your query.

If you find that the solution/answer I provided led you to, or resulted in a fix, please close the ticket with a FixYa! rating. I would be very grateful for your show of appreciation.

Thank you for using FIXYA!

Built in Microphone doesn't work in AIM, Windows Live Messanger


You would be surprised at how many people don't realize that each application has it's own configuration screen.

It's not the end-users fault - like you said... the instructions could be a BIT more clear.
