    I down loaded and installed the driver for my GE MiniCam Pro 98067 (rev 2) but it will not work. I am trying to install it on an XP machine which does not recognize the driver? The mic on the camera works but the video does not. The system detects the camera but does not install the camera because it cannot find the driver (which has been down loaded and opened and run through the installation process). I have done and redone it and rebooted a couple of times. The drive comes from the GE website. Any suggestions appreciated.

Instalation without a cd for my webcam

For installing the web cam, after plugging in the webcam, you have to check if windows detects it. It may detect without any problems. Then you can start using right away. If it doesn't, you need to install the driver software. The driver software can be easily installed if your computer is connected to the internet. In the device manager, select the option to update/download the driver. It will search for the necessary drivers and install. The web cam will be ready to use after this.

I am facing a critical problem. I am using WinXp and couple of days back I installed My NX6000 cam in laptop (Pariso V3000 model) which was working absolutely fine. Then after that I installed Logitech Cam...

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

My computer won't find the new hardware

this sometimes happens when there is insufficient power going to the usb ports top power a lot of hardware. Try disconnecting any other usb connected peripherals and connect your cam in one of those other usb ports as the port may also be stuck in a loop unable to identify your cam. restart your pc with the cam pluged in the different port if it is not automatically detected and it then should install.
