Question about Acer Aspire 5610-4648 Notebook

4 Answers

Video capabilities of the Acer Crystal eye webcam.

My Acer Aspire 5720G with Windows Vista Premium OS comes with a built in Crystal Eye Camera. The camera is great for taking snapshots, but I want to take some videos and couldn't figure out how to do it. It seems that this camera does not support video recording, i couldn't find an icon of a video when i activated it. only the icon of a camera, trash, resolution, the setting for video capture properties, but not the video icon. do i need to install a new driver for it or it doesn't simply support it?

You do need a driver, have you checked to see if you have one by trying to install new hardware and see if your PC finds one? The acer site is having problems. I have not been able to download anything there in a week.

Once you have the driver installed you can make movies this way:

Click 'start' > Computer > C:drive > Windows > SUYIN NB Cam > Then Right Click LiveCam, Choose Send to Desktop (as shortcut) After launching, you will have to manually activate your mic,cam,record mic, and time limit preferences each time you record a video. I am going to look for the driver elsewhere.I'll get back to you on that.

The Camera is fact Liteon, and your using sunyin driver to operate it, is that correct?

Apropriate and recommended drivers for specific hardware, else things go BELLY_UP!!!!

Try installing the recommended drivers for your Liteon camera.

Hi ` I`ve got an Acer Aspire 6530 G laptop and I OS Vista but have no tried Windows 7 but the Acer Crystal eye web camera is not working so can you please explain hat I should do ??? Thank you Elisabeth...

Check from Acer Support Europe.
As for the camera for your Acer Aspire 6530 G, there are 2 model versions by vendors:- 1. Bison, 2. Suyin. Are you sure you have correctly install the correction drivers version on your Laptop Vista OS?

If you are not sure, check the laptop specifications manual/brochure, or you can reinstall the drivers for the camera by Trial & Error method. If it does work uninstall rejected drivers and install the next drivers.

Download Camera drivers @ Acer Support Site (UK)

Hope it helps.

Crystal eye webcam for acer aspire 6920G says camera not found

hey, I had the same problem, I've got an Acer Aspire 6920 and I swapped out Vista that was on it for Windows XP

I went to the link you posted but it just goes to
so I figured I'd try something

if you go to acer aspire 6920 drivers, you can only pick Vista and Windows 7, and not Windows XP

instead, pick 6530 drivers (older acer) and pick the Bison driver:

Install it (with or without installing the previous Crystal eye, doesn't matter, and it will work properly

Vista does not include any way to test the camera. You may have QuickPlay in the Programs list - this will test the camera.
You can use MSN messenger and establish a video link or load Skype.
Try this
Willing WebCam Lite from if you want to test it.
