Lifecam 3000 won't work with Logitech Vid HD software

I recently started using this model webcam but it won't work with the Logitech Vid HD software that I used with my previous webcam and where I have all my webcam contacts (because they all have Logitech cams like I used to!). Why'd I switch? It was free! And the old one didn't work.

Did you try to run the application as administrator? Some video software needs to communicate with the registry and requires elevation.

SOURCE: webcam

if you have had it working previously in the pc, the drivers will still be installed, so just try and remember if you have put it in the same usb port as before, cos if not it will ask for drivers again.

Normal 0 Disconnect 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.
Then to use it on the Web, do this.
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 video 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 be able to see and her 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: Your audio and video should 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.

D. AIM (AOL) Messenger

Need apple software and drivers for Microsoft LifeCam

Lifecam was fine for XP & Vista but not for windows 7 or 8 so if you're using the newer widows I suggest buying a Logitech 9000 or better, they work with everything. If not this might point you in the right direction, you med the drivers for your version of the camera e.g. 2.1, 3.0, 3000

    After I installed Microsoft LifeCam VX-3000 on my computer, I logged on to skype hoping to use the video cam for a video call. I got a message that skype does not work with the vx-3000. What do I do to...

    Skype is very picky about having the latest drivers
    Visit the Logitech website and browse the photo gallery for your model and click on the photo to navigate to the support page.
    Note - Older models on page 2 - look for the link at the bottom right of page 1 and click on it "Still can't find your product?"
    When you get to the support page for your model take time to check out the 'Readme' links for known issues and advice on chat programs and any addition software you may need,en?prodcrid=405

    In addition to the Logitech installer you will need to run the support software - Microsoft DirectX . This comes pre-loaded on most Windows computers but has to be updated - I am currently on version 11
    To start the DirectX Diagnostic Tool, click Start, click Run, type dxdiag in the Open box, and then click OK.

    Procedure to re-install Logitech software
    Close all programs while uninstalling - downloading and uploading software
    Disconnect your webcam
    Uninstall the current webcam software on your computer
    Restart computer
    Download the Installation package from Logitech
    Run the installer and choose your options during the installation - You may not want Logitech Chat but the Desktop icon for the webcam toolbar is a must.
    Connect your webcam when prompted.

    Lifecam VX 3000. error msg upon starting

    Sounds like you have a conflict or support software.
    I have a Logitech and need Directx to drive it along with the logitech software.
    I think chatroulette uses Flashplayer and that may be a clue.
    Visit the Lifecam website and check what additional software you need. After filling in the webcam and OS have a look at the 'readme link for specific information regarding this model and your OS

    Computer will not let me remove the lifecam VX-3000

    Go to Google and type in Logitech Vid download, use it with your life cam (I do ) first you have to add your contacts and they have to download the software (free) and add you, then you'll be able to connect, plus it's HD quality and great sound. You might also try bringing up the task master to end the process and see if you can reinstall. Ctrl + Alt + Dlt should bring it up.
