    Can you give a bit more information. What programme are you working in ie word, powerpoint etc. Also are you saving to disc and then trying to read files on another computer or on the same laptop.

    As a quick try - save file to the laptop first, then open saved file - is it still coming up as nonesense? If it opens ok then try copying to disc and see what happens when you open it from the cd.

Sorry can't really advise with the information you have given. If file opens as normal when saved directly to the laptop hard drive then it's not a problem with the actual file. If you are working on a file and then saving it directly to disc have you made sure that the disc has been formatted first?

Download the driver for the webcam

Hi abelw64,
The only way you can get help here is by providing all the needed information. In this case, we will need the specific brand and technical details of your laptop or netbook so that we can check out it's specifications and then suggest an appropriate driver for your system.
If you are running a Windows OS(Operating System) on your laptop, do the following: 1. Go to Start> Run and type in "dxdiag"(WITHOUT the quotes). 2.In the DirectX Diagnostics window, click the "Save all information" tab and select the place to save the Dxdiag.txt file.I suggest you save it to your desktop for easier reference later on. 3.Open the Dxdiag.txt file with notepad(double click it and it will open with the default text editor). 4.Highlight all text in the file(Quick short-cut: CTRL+A key combination), copy it and paste it in this forum.
For detailed system information, repeat the same procedure, but this time, type in the command "msinfo32" and select the save info button.Then copy all it's info to this forum and from there it will be posible to tell the type of webcam that's most likely to be installed on your system.
Do it as soon as possible.
