Re: My Motoroloa E6 webcam not working with vista
You need to go to the manufactures site and download the VISTA
driver for the camera. Then follow the info below to install
Try disconnecting the Camera from the USB port and reinstall
the CD or Downloaded software program. When the program asks you
to connect the camera to the USB port, do so and it should work.
Hope this helps. Bud

Logitec cams have some issues with some Windows operating systems particularly Vista, However if you have Vista you will have to download Vistas driver for that exact cam model. If your operating system isnt Vista then setup the cam in "control panel, printers and other hardware, scanners and cameras". Also I trust when you installed the driver you did NOT plug camera in till it told you to do so.!! ALL USB powered devices must NOT be plugged in while loading drivers.
We regret to inform that this product is not compatible with Vista.
There are no Vista drivers available.
We always try to keep our products functional for as long as possible.
As a result of the quick succession of developments in this sector and
the age of some products, we are sometimes no longer able to keep
products compatible with the frequent release of new operating systems,
such as Windows Vista. Unfortunately, this is the case for your product.
It is good, however, that you have always been able to use the product
in the past, but the technology used is no longer compatible with the
new operating system. We apologize for this.
A clear example that shows that many old technologies no longer work in
Windows Vista is the operating system itself.
There are two possible solutions:
1. You can continue to use your old operating system.
2. You can purchase a new product that is compatible with the new
operating system. The advantage of this option is that the purchase
price of the new product is less than your current product, the
performance is much faster and/or better and you have a full warranty
That particular webcam has been retired from Creative Labs for some time now. I checked the manufacturer site as well as driver guide in hopes of someone creating a Windows Vista driver. Unfortunately there was nothing available.
The biggest problem with Creative Labs is they have Horrible Horrible driver support. I remember the nightmare of getting the drivers for my Audigy Sound Card replaced.
If you want to try to get it working follow these steps, in this order:
1) Plug in the cam and see if Vista will autodetect it and set it up. 2) Try using the Windows 98 drivers (probably won't work but you can try, stranger things have happened) 3) If one of those 2 steps allowed the cam to work, just find yourself some webcam software. (2 Free ones off the top of my head are Fwink and Yawcam)
If neither of those options work, you'll have to go and replace your webcam. I would recommend staying away from Creative Labs. I've got a great Logitech Cam (Mine does HD Quality) that I purchased for about $80. It's called the Logitech Quickcam 9000. It does a beautiful job and it comes with everything you need to get started. There are cheaper models available that will work equally as well with Vista. Check your local computer store.
