Just bought a new dell and this wont find the camera
This is under Windows Vista
The software installs fine, but then when it come time to find the camera and connect to it at the last step of the installation wizard, it just sits there and blinks over and over and over that its connecting. If I hit next during the blinking, it says the camera is installed but then when i run the camera program it says it cant find a camera. The audio wizard also will not work, any ideas?

I am assuming you have installed the vista driver for the camera, if not
If you have, then try it in another usb port and re boot the pc with it connected to see if it finally sees the camera.
Sometimes the XP driver works, so give that a try also, but it sounds as if it is not installing the software properly toward the end which may not be registering the camera in the registry, hence why it is not seen as connected hardware.

Windows Vista" is your operating system. I would start by uninstalling (undoing) any of the printer software that you have installed, and try again. It sounds like at this point that you may have bits and pieces of both 'XP' and 'Vista' drivers installed. Your link is pointing to the right page at Dell, just select the "driver" under the windows Vista tab. I'm not sure how that software will be packaged, But I assume that it is self installing once you download it. You just click on it to start the installation. Usually you will leave you USB cable to the printer unplugged until after the installation, and then you are prompted to plug it in. I'm not sure if this will help, but it's difficult to know exactly what you have done to this point.
Go out to Lexmark web site and look for a vista update in their software download section. So this should solve your problem.Most of the cds which come with equipment do not contain vista software and drivers.
I would take the dynex back to the store. I have dynex and a brand new netgear router.Netgear is awesome! Wife has netgear and hers is working fine and she is running vista! Im running dynex and nothing but problems so easy fix is replace with netgear. Goodluck kingelviss
Many times the older version drivers will work as new released operating systems try to be backwards compatible with software. Try loading the XP software or search the Canon website for updated software for your model.
