Question about Logitech Webcam

Open Question

I have a Logitech 250 webcam that someone gave to me. It didn't come with any software, but when I plugged it into the computer for the first time it automatically installed the program. Every time I use the webcam on Skype it works for no more than 5 minutes, then it freezes. The "Logitech Webcam Controller" is what I think makes it freeze. How can I get my webcam to work??

Normal 0 How much memory do you have installed in your computer? It may need to be, increased, as this is likely to be the cause of your computer freezing, rebooting, times out, or shutting down.
Hope this is of some help. Bud

Installing a logitech wbcam..c310...on xp sp2..Computer does not recognize camera after restart.


You will have to unplug your webcam from your computer and install the software again.
It is important that you first uninstall your Logitech camera software from your computer.
You will be prompted by the software to plug in your camera, do so that time only.

I am sure your webcam will work fine with Xp , but I will suggest that you make a clean install.
A clean install can possible solve your problem, if your first installation of the software for your webcam didn't install properly or another program in your computers memory was conflicting with it.

You can read more about this procedure at Logitechs site :

When i plug in the webcam and i click the logitech webcam software to take pictures.it says no logitech webcam deteched.


Make sure you have the logitech webcam support software loaded - Microsoft DirectX - version 9 or later.
If you have been using your webcam in another location it can remain hooked up that application even if you exit it correctly.
You will have to re-boot the webcam software by unplugging it for a couple of seconds and then restart the logitech toolbar.
Failing this - reinstall the software

Visit the Logitech website and browse the photo gallery for your model and click on the photo to navigate to the support page.
Note - Older models on page 2 - look for the link at the bottom right of page 1 and click on it "Still can't find your product?"

http://www.logitech.com/index.cfm/405/&cl=us,en?prodcrid=405

In addition to the Logitech installer you will need to download Microsoft DirectX 9 or later to support your webcam

Procedure
Close all programs while uninstalling - downloading and uploading software
Disconnect your webcam
Uninstall the current webcam software on your computer
Restart computer
Download the Installation package from Logitech
Run the installer and choose your options - You may not want Logitech Chat but the Desktop icon for the webcam toolbar is a must.
Connect your webcam when prompted.

A driver is a computer program used to run a device or hardware.
You can download the Logitech software bundle from here

http://www.logitech.com/index.cfm/405/&cl=us,en?prodcrid=405

Browse the photo gallery and click on your pic to move to the support page for your model
Click the 'download' link to what OS Logitech support for your cam
Older webcams will not have a windows 7 driver but you may be able to download the bundle and run it in Compatibility Mode

If no driver is available try using the older OS software in Compatibility Mode
Right click on the webcam icon on your desktop or the webcam file from 'All Programs' - select 'Properties'
Select the 'Compatibility' tab
Select 'Compatibility Mode'
Use the dropbox to show the OS
Click OK
Restart your computer

Logitech camera plugged in but still can't recognise device.It always says device not pluged in.


please, note if the USB drivers for logitech were installed when the rest of software was. only as that the motherboard will recognize the webcam.

in the logitech's webcam cd, you'll see a chapter with only USB DRIVERS. if not, you can find them in www.driverguide.com.
it's free registration and easy to use site.
