I installed my logitech webcam correctly and got everything ready, but when I activate the program it doesnt register as connected. The computer realizes a driver is connected, but the actual program keeps telling me to reconnect the camera, which has no effect. I would appreciate any help.

What operating system are you using? Be sure you have used the CD that came with the camera to install the appropriate drivers and software for the camera as well. If the problem persists even after updating to the latest drivers for your camera, then try it on a different USB port and be sure to reboot your system before doing so.
most of the time people need drivers, if it came with a disc, install the driver if it didnt, go to google and type in "logitech Quickcam driver" and download the installer once you find one. if that doesnt work, your camera is busted.
1. Your Skype setup should have selector to let you use the camera indepenently but the Logitech camera utility will have to be disabled or the program exited. Remove the Logitech camera from the " startup group in the start up window in the startup folder in the program files. this should stop the Logitech program from loading and give the Skype program access to the camera.
Webcam software is notorious for remaining hooked up on old programs it was used in - even if you have exited the program correctly. You have to reboot the software by unplugging the camera for a few seconds from the USB If you want further advice visit the Logitech website - Identify your camera and click on it to navigate to the support page for your model
You do not say how far you got or what the problem was. The Logitech webcam has a good support system Once the software is downloaded you should have a toolbar dedicated to your webcam, launched from a desktop shortcut icon or from 'All programs' Make sure you do not plug the webcam in until prompted to do so. Try this Disconnect the webcam Uninstall any webcam software Restart computer Visit the Logitech support website ( below ) Identify your webcam - click on it and download the software - make sure you select the correct OS for your computer
Ok, take a breath... What has happened, is although you uninstalled the Logitech software, the folders still exist (as with any program uninstallation).
Unless you're comfortable with poking around your C drive, then download and run a program called "ccleaner" at www.ccleaner.com, which in a normal scenerio will remove redidual files left behind by an uninstall.
Once you have installed ccleaner, choose "tools" and use their uninstaller to remove the logitech software (if it shows on the program list).Even if it doesnt show, still run the "cleaner" function", as there will always be temp files lurking around that could mess up an installation.
Then, go to Logitech's site and get the latest software for your camera model.
Be sure to NOT plug the camera in until it tells you to do so!! THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT!!!
You may have to go into Skype's video configuration utility to setup the cam, but I think you can take it from there. Good luck!
