Is there something to focus the light on the eye piece...it seems more of a hardware problem then software one...but you should have some control over the cam functions in your xp-control panel..go there and have a look.!

I got msn and im trying to web cam with a person and it will not work

Test your webcam here to make sure it broadcasts ok - Hit 'Allow' in the top window and check your cam in the left hand panel.

Having proved your cam is working ,you can configure it to WLM (MSN)

CONFIGURE SOFTWARE to MSN
Its good practice to disconnect and re-connect your webcam before you start - if you have been using it elsewhere the MSN software may have difficulty in locating it, even if you exited the previous program correctly.
The reason being, the webcam software can remain hooked-up to a program and needs to be rebooted.
Mine, I just unplug it from the USB and plug it back in to reboot the software.
If yours is integral with the computer you will have to re-start the computer, use a keyboard shortcut or disable / enable the webcam from the Device Manager.

Open MSN
Click 'Open Menu'
From 'Tools; navigate to, and click, 'Audio and Video setup'
Set your speakers
Click 'Test' - if OK, move on.
Set your mic as default
Use the slider to set volume and test.
Click 'Next'
This takes you to the video setup
Your webcam should be broadcasting - if not - make sure the webcam is set as default - restart MSN
Use 'Webcam Settings'to fine tune the picture.
Click 'Finish'

HOW DO I TURN OFF AVATAR LIVE CAM VIDEO

This problem is not fixed through the settings of your Creative device but by selecting the right webcamin your messaging software.

When you install your Creative Camera it installs the physical Camera as well as a virtual Camera. So there are actually 2 (or more Camera's installed). The Avatar plays through the virtual Camera.

Whatever programme you are using (MSN or SKYPE etc) you need to select the correct video Camera.

So, for example in MSN messenger, select Tools, Audio Video Setup and select your camera from the list (make sure the Virtual camera is not selected).

To be even clearer as an example: If you are using a LiveCam Notebook Ultra 3 camera, you will see the following listed as cameras when you go to select a webcam to use within your messaging software :
Live! Cam Ultra Notebook #3 -- this is your normal camera
Live! Cam Virtual -- this us the Avatar etc camera,
Live! Cam Ultra Notebook Ultra (VFW) -- this is your widescreen camera

Just select the right one!

Wont work w/ AOL IM

I am asuming you have set the cam up in AOL settings, if so try making a short video with sound in windows movie maker 2, as this will help set up the cam for you. If it records ok you will know that it's a AOL software problem.

Problem when i installed in windows vista

There is still plenty of hardware issues with Vista, so go to the cam or Windows web site for related issues and see if there is a patch. Make sure the cam is also set up correctly and use windows live if your'e still using MSN. You can also try installing Windows XP drivers as they are sometimes accepted and work.

Logiteh Quick cam Fusion

You may have to set the camera up in Windows live or whatever it is you are using in the options. Both video and audio have to be calibrated as well as in the software you got with the cam. Ensure you have the latest version of MSN which is windows live. Just to check the cam is ok, make a short video in windows movie maker, if it's ok then it's the messaging programme that's at fault.
