Question about Chicony TwinkleCam DC2110 Webcam

Webcam on eeepc900 reported as CNF7129 usb device

Having removed Linux from my new eeepc900 the built-in webcam does not work anymore under win2k, being the ONLY device left without appropriate drivers.
I have found out that the cam is a product of Chicony Electronics in China yet the site does not mention CNF7129 directly in the usb cams section. I tried unpacking the DC2110 file and installed in the notebook but the cam still appears commented by yellow exclamation on device manager.

Any similar situation?

Well I have installed windows xp pro sp2 and i dont have any problems with this.
The webcam uses drivers that come with windows.

Posted on Feb 22, 2009

In Device Manager, I right-clicked on CNF7129 and chose 'update driver'. I said 'yes' to 'let Windows search online for driver'. It only took a short while and it had found and updated the driver.

My web-cam now works again.

Linux dynex webcam install


Linux is an open-source operating system built on the Unix system that was introduced in the 1990s. It's gradually become widely accepted as an alternative to both Windows and Macintosh because of its reliability and the open-source ethos that provides the software for free. Because the Linux operating system is constantly changing, it can quickly adapt to handle new technology, such as installing a USB webcam.

Plug in your USB webcam. Boot up your Linux system and log in. Fire up a program that uses the camera, such as Skype. If the webcam is fairly recent, there is a good chance that it will work with your Linux distribution. If not, keep reading. Open a terminal window and type the command "dmesg ' more" (without the quotes). This command allows you to thumb through your boot-up messages. Check for any messages that relate to the camera. If you do see a reference, go to your "/lib/modules/usb" subfolder to see if there is a module there that exists for it. Depending on your Linux distribution, your "/usb" subfolder may be in a different location beneath "/lib/modules." You will have to recompile your kernel with support for the module, install the new kernel and then reboot the system to try to connect to the USB camera. Open a terminal window and fire up the "lusb" program. If you are running a graphical environment like Gnome or KDE, you can use the v412-tool to check for a list of USB devices attached to your system. Determine which USB device listed is your camera; there are no hard and fast rules, so guesswork prevails. In the listing for your camera is an eight-digit number with a colon in the middle. This number is the manufacturer's product ID, which you can then use to scour the Internet for a Linux driver. Hope this helps. https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Webcam

Well i have linux on my computer and my logitech camera wont work on skype or anything nothing will pop up to show me what to do when i plug in the cord to my computer is there any solution??????????????


Hello dear Linux user:

Unlike Windows, Linux will not pop a window notifying about a new USB device, unless it's some kind of file storage.
You could check whether or not you USB WEB camera was recognized by your system by opening a terminal window and type: lsusb and press enter. If you device is listed, it's a good sign.
The next step is to configuring your Skype Client. While logged in Skype, open Audio Options Settings and select pulseaudio for incoming and outgoing. After saving your options, open Video Options and select your USB Camera as your video device from the scroll down menu.
I am not sure what Linux Distribution you have. However, Logitech Cameras are usialy working without any problems on Ubuntu 10 or higher.
Hope this helps

How can i install a web camera if i don't have an instalation cd? tanks anticipated


If the Webcam is a Plug-n-Play device, all you have to do is to plug it in and the computer should install the driver automatically.

But if it's not a Plug-n-Play device, then you need to download the driver from the web sites.

You may send us the brand and model number of you camera so that we could help you out in finding the driver.

Have a good day!

Mionet unable to detect Lifecam 7000


A camera icon will show up at the bottom of your My Resources in MioNet. If the camera does not appear, then a manual scan is required. To scan for a new camera, go to the MioNet application, select File, then click "Scan for Cameras and new Devices…" MioNet will report any changes in the computer configuration.

If the camera isn't detected and an icon is not available, then there may be two devices interfering with a scan:

1. Built-in webcam: MioNet does not support built-in webcams. This device should be disabled in Windows Device Manager, the computer rebooted, and a new "Scan for Cameras and new Devices…" performed with the USB webcam. Once the USB webcam is detected by MioNet, the onboard webcam can be re-enabled and the computer rebooted.

2. TV tuner card: MioNet also does not support TV tuner cards. This device should be disabled in Windows Device Manager, the computer rebooted, and a new "Scan for Cameras and new Devices…" performed with the USB webcam. Once the USB webcam is detected by MioNet, the TV tuner card can be re-enabled and the computer rebooted.

3. If the camera is being used by another program, MioNet will not be able to detect it. Please confirm no other program, including the camera view in Windows control panel, is not using the camera.

Cannot install this hardware


First of all, you might want to read this:

http://www.fixya.com/support/t299686-install_microsoft_lifecam_vx_3000

What system are you using?

Try doing a Google search "LifeCam VX3000 installation" and seeing if any of the documents listed helps you. I am not sure what OS you are using (Windows XP or Vista? Linux? Another?) Others have reported problems too. Be careful about which you do first during setup. Some systems require installing drivers/software BEFORE you plug in the camera, and some require you to install software/drivers AFTER you plug in the camera.

What have you done to make it work in Linux? If you open a terminal and plug in your camera, what do you see when you type in 'dmesg'? If the camera is able to be identified then your kernel has support for it. If it registers it as an unknown USB device, then you will need to recompile your kernel with support for USB webcams and v4l (video for linux). Also, do you have any v4l applications installed? Gnome Meeting is a good client to test to see if a webcam is truely working or not. Also take note of the camera /dev device location so you can configure another client to work with your webcam (such as Yahoo Messanger).

Hope this helps.

USB Port Unrecognizable


It seems that many people are still getting the 'USB Device not Recognized' problem from time to time. Unfortunately there is no easy fix.

Firstly, it's recommended that you make sure every one of your motherboard drivers are completely up-to-date, but you probably already knew that.

In XP, after a USB port isn't used for a long while the USB driver built into the OS sets the OHCI controller to suspend. When you plug a device back in, it can sometimes fail to 'wake up' properly. This problem was supposedly fixed in SP1 but there is a related registry hack that may still be able to help.

Run regedt32.exe and navigate to;

HKEY_LOCAL_Machine\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Usb

Create the Usb key if it doesn't already exist. Under this key, create a new DWORD value called DisableSelectiveSuspend and give it a value of 1. Then restart the PC.

A long shot perhaps, but I recall having similar problems with a USB hub built into my Microsoft keyboard and adding this key seemed to solve it. It wouldn't hurt in trying icon_smile.png.

Alternatively, removing all entries relating to USB in Device Manager and all associated USB drivers will force XP into refreshing the USB driver stack.

Begin by unplugging all USB devices, then use Add/Remove Programs in Control Panel to uninstall any USB driver software. Next, boot up into safe mode and go to Device Manager. Once in device manager make sure 'Show hidden devices' is checked under the View menu. Uninstall all device entries in this order;

1. USB peripheral devices (printers etc.)

2. HID and/or Composite USB (Human Interface Devices) You're using PS/2 input devices so you may not have this entry.

3. USB Root Hub(s)

4. USB Host Controller(s) (Universal or Enhanced Host Controllers)

Then boot back into Windows (not safe mode) and it should populate the Root Hubs & Host controllers again. Proceed to plug your USB devices back in, starting with your powered hub. Be aware that most USB printers and scanners need to have their drivers installed first before you plug them in.

Hopefully some of this may be of help, let us know how you get on.

Vista home and web camera


A lot of devices are having problems with Vista; especially the older devices: I would honestly look for a new webcam that is compatible with Vista.
