    I got the following problem with Vista: I installed the camera but when I wanted to download-install the LifeCam software from the Internet I receive a message saying that I am not conected to the Internet or the server is busy. Now I have a camera that I can't use because I don't have the software for it.

    Great looking little gizmo but it does not work and I can not find drivers for it. Can anyone point me to a site where I can download a driver to make the thing function. The only thing I have been able to find on the net are the commercial driver finding sites and even microsoft directs to one of these.

Great Idea! When I installed a video capture card it appears Windows Live Messenger has it set as the camera. Open Tools\Audio and video setings... Go to the second page by clicking next. Check to make sure your camera is selected.

Normal 0 Did you install the software with the camera connected to the computer? Disconnect the camera from the USB port and reinstall the software. When the program asks you to connect the camera, do so, and it should work. Hope this is of some help. Bud

Below is info for setting up Audio & Video to chat on line after you install , either Skype or a messenger program.

Web Camera’s have to be setup on the program they are to be used with. Just installing the camera on your computer does not set it up to broadcast on messengers or Skype.

Each program has Options that have to be setup in order for the Audio and Video to function properly.

A. Skype Setup:

After downloading and installing Skype 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 picture.
  4. Then on the bottom of the page click on Save.

The camera and audio should function properly. Your friends and Family will now see and talk to you.

B. Yahoo Setup:

After downloading and installing Yahoo Messenger 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.

C. Windows Live Messenger:

  1. After you start Windows Live Messenger, expand the view by clicking on the square on top left next to the red X.
  2. Then on the Windows Live messenger window on the right side, click on “ “Show Menus.” And then click on “Show the Menu Bar”.
  3. Next go to the Menu Bar on right side, click on “ “Action.”
  4. Go to “TOOLS” and click “Audio and Video Setting” and follow the instructions.
NOTE: You audio and video shoud work. Enjoy.

When done both the Audio and Video will function properly so you can chat and see family or friends you are connected to.
Hope this helps. Bud

I have problem with vx-7000 life cam, it does work, but not on chat site I'm using, there is static image at bottom of cam screen, it was working great first 2 days, and then I thought I installed extra...

First try swapping the VX-7000 to another USB port.
No change? Take a snap shot of you're self. Check the snap shot and see if the static was caught in the picture. No static, no problem. If you see the static than uninstall you're VX-7000 driver software and any extra downloaded software that was installed. Once completed, reboot the system. Re-install you're driver software for the VX-7000 with the USB plugged into you're system. Re-boot only if windows requests it. Than check windows for possible hardware updates. (While in windows update click the Custom button). MS may have updates for you're hardware VX-7000.
If you add extra components, install one at a time, re-booting between each install. You can check MS for updated software by going online. Open the link provided below;
