  • Call the store you bought it at. Or the owner's manual should have more instructions in it. Or, call the toll free number and ask the company you bought it from.
    PS - Do you have a friend who owns one? Maybe ask them?

  • Check your device manager to see if the camera has been installed. If there is a yellow sign beside it that indicates the drivers need to be installed. Sometimes Cameras need Java, Flash, quicktime to work. I am sure you probably have these but check to see if they need updating. Could also be you don't have DirectX software needs updating. Computer applications use DirectX for video processing which includes webcams.

  • All computer applications have directX for video processing. You should check to see if you have the latest version of DirectX 10 or even 11. You can go through http://www.microsoft.com/ and check there for directx.
