Re: Message: cam not detected
Look for cam cable loose connection, or the cable itself is bad!( it's the common problem, check the cable end tips!) uninstalling, installing and reinstalling any software and driver is useless too. The pc must recognize first your webcam, if the connection is not good theres no way it can be detected by the pc.

Windows 7 driver is not available for your PC Cam. The release date for this PC Cam was in 2003. I recommend you pruchase a new model. Check Amazon.com, there you'll find many new & used PC Cams reasonably priced.
Same problem. Have Creative Web Cam Pro. When I installed it and everything it showed me sitting there and I could see myself fine. I open PC-CAM Center, however, and it says "Creative Camera not detected. Please plug in to continue..." It's plugged in. I can click the button on top and the PC-CAM center comes up, so I know it works. But it won't detect it. Thanks for any help you can provide!
Try reseting the camera. Here are the instructions that are taken from this Kbase article:
"Turn on the camera and then press the Snapshot button ( on the top, right hand side of camera) and the Operation Mode button simultaneously for more than two seconds. This deletes all files from the camera "
