    after installing the software and drivers, the program asks me to plug in the camera and wait for it to connect.... it sits on "please wait for the camera to connect" forever or until I skip the process. of course, the camera doesn't work if I continue without connecting. It doesn't want to "reconnect" later either. I have un-installed and re-installed the software AND drivers 4 times.

Pc wont detect camera


Most of those driver CDs only work if you plug the camera in after the CD is done. So since you've already ran the CD, try just unplugging it and plug it back in and wait a sec for Windows to find it. If that doesn't work, try a different USB port (assuming it's USB). I have seen USB ports just go bad, and their neighbor works just fine.

Computer not recognizing web camera


The only other thing that I would suggest you try to do is (if possible) goto another PC or maybe a friends PC and plug the web cam in. If it does the same thing then the web cam no longer works. If it does work, then you may want to try another USB port on your PC.

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

My laptop will shut off if I connect my logitech cam


Unplug all the other USB connected and just try plugging the camera into the USB and see if it works and doesn't shut down the computer. If it works, then one of the other units are conflicting with the camera. Then try plugging one USB unit at a time back in the computer and see which one is causing the problem. Good way to eliminate a problem and worth the afford. Bud

Problem with the pc web camera........


First try to install the camera to a different computer for you to isolate the problem if it is the camera or just the driver. If you can use a different USB cable that is good. Make sure to plug the camera at the back of your computer and not on the front USB.

Camera is [not] connected...


you should not have had to install anything for the cam to work on Vista. If you have installed any software, remove it. Reboot, plug your player in, open Device Manager, and remove the device that shows up representing your cam(completely uninstall it). Reboot again, and plug in your player. It should be recognized now.
