Hi. I recently purchased a Windows Vista computer with a Quickcam 5000 with out. The driver didnt work, but that wasnt a problem - I downloaded a proper driver of their website. It worked for a few hours. Then I sat down, clicked on Logitech QuickCam, and it said.. "A webcam is not plugged or is not working properly." I plugged it into a different USB, and the Computer made the noise it ussualy does when a Item is plugged in. I checked again, and it still said.. "A webcam is not plugged or is not working properly." I checked on Control Panel, and the computer does say Logitech QuickCam 5000 as a USB device. But it still doesnt come up on the program or on the computer that its plugged in. I've tried everything, but still no different. Please help! Thanks.

Some drivers are packaged as 32 or 64-bit. To find out which architecture of Windows you're using, check out this page: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/827218. Note that the instructions for Vista are the same for 7.

This will then take you to the next window where you need to select your
Operating System. Then you will get your download driver.
Hope this helps. Bud
Assuming you installed the Vista driver and not the generic driver in windows, you would also have to set up the sound in the individual IM programmes.
If you have installed the driver but accidently let the pc use a generic one, uninstall the camera software and download this driver and install, ensuring that wherever you download it to is where windows looks for the correct driver.
If you still have no luck, try using the xp driver that will probably be on the cd rom you got with the cam.
Lastly, not all camera makes perform correctly on all makes of pc, it's hit and mis so if the cam does not work under any circumstances, return to the retailer and exchange for a different make.
