    I cannot use my Logitech Communicate webcam. The program will install but says it is being used by another application. I stayed on thh phone with Logitech support for 1 1/2 hours and they finally gave up! The camera will work on my laptop, but not desktop, so I know it is not a defective camera. I have performed a clean boot, downloaded the latest software, etc. Is there a way to tell exactly what application is using this webcam? I really would appreciate any help. Thank you.

    I have tried three different models of logitechs webcams and everytime I get the same error: camera is being used by another program. But I have no idea which program. I can't find any other program at all on my computer that would be using the camera. I think that if Logitechs program can deduce that another program is in conflict, it should also be able to name that program. Otherwise it's just as useful as BSOD.

LG Web Camera LIC-300

The QuickCam Connect is a brand of Web camera manufactured by Logitech. It is among the lowest-priced in the Logitech line of cameras, and it was developed to work exclusively with the Windows operating system. As a result, the Logitech Web site does not offer software that allows users to connect the webcam to a Macintosh computer. However, third-party software is available at no charge to enable you to use a QuickCam Connect with your Mac.

Plug your QuickCam Connect into an available USB port on the Macintosh. Navigate to the Macam download site, which is hyperlinked on the site or is available below. Note: When you arrive at this download site, the application will immediately begin downloading onto your Macintosh. After the software has downloaded to your computer, it will automatically decompress and a disk drive icon will appear on your desktop. A dialog window will open in the Finder. The Macam application is pictured within the dialog window, and should be highlighted, then dragged to your applications folder. From the "Applications" folder, double-click on the Macam icon and open the program. Navigate back to the Macam dialog window that opened on your desktop after the application was downloaded from the Internet. Highlight and drag the "macam.component" to the "/Library/QuickTime/" folder. Use a simple video viewer to verify that the component is installed correctly. QuickCam Connect and iChat IChat is a popular instant messaging application that comes with the Macintosh OS. The software download that allows you to use a QuickCam Connect with your Mac needs another piece of software to be compatible with iChat. Unfortunately, this compatibility is not free. Navitage to Ecamm Network (see Below) and locate iUSBCam, a software application that will make iChat compatible with QuickCam Connect. IUSBCam costs $9.95 as of January 2010. After purchasing the software, download and follow the installation steps that accompany the application. Help with installation and applications.

HP Webcam Deluxe KQ246AA Not working correctly in XP

No solution, but I have precisely the same issue. I've reinstalled and removed ArcSoft many times, being careful to clean registries, etc but to no avail. The camera actually worked with Skype initially (plug and play), UNTIL I installed ArcSoft. So I think that ArcSoft "stepped" on a driver somewhere that I can't detect or repair. (I'm using "Driver Detective" but so far it hasn't helped) Will update if I find a fix.

No image from my Microsoft LifeCam VX-3000

Uninstall the software.
Restart the computer and see if the camera is found.
If camera is found.
Reinstall the software.

Another might be that the usb plug was not pushed right in.

    AIM software/ Web camera

    Assuming your camera works with some other software or online application the problem is probably AIM...uninstall and reinstall AIM. If it does not work with other software go to device manager in Windows and make sure the device is listed without an exclamation mark next to it. If there is one reinstall the driver. If any of this is not clear....bug me. 80% chance one of the above should solve the problem. Tango...

    Error message: Another application may be using the camera

    what may be happening is photoshop is still aquiring the cam in the programme although you may of finished using the software and the camera automatically associates itself with adobe. press Ctrl, Alt & Delete to get into task manager and in the applications tab look for your photoshop programme, if it is there, click end process. If not there look in processes and do the same, this should release your camera for use with other applications. If all fails you will have to uninstall the camera software and reinstall to associate it with the cam.
