LifeCam VX-3000 Poor Audio?

Post by » Fri, 05 Jan 2007 07:18:10


I've just been given a new Microsoft LifeCam VX-3000 and i'm having a
few problems getting it set up. The software installed fine (including
the update) and then when I plug the camera in I do get a picture. So
far so good. However, I'm having difficulty in getting sound into it.
Any recording (e.g. Sound Recorder, Skype, etc.) sounds muffled and
distant even when I turn the microphone volume right up.

I'm using XP SP2 and have just checked for any updates.
I've just re-installed the motherboard sound drivers.
I've also got the Microphone setting in Volume Control set to Mute.

I think i've had problems recording sound on this box before when I was
testing the motherboard Mic In port with a set of headphones (well,
they're just a microphone in reverse arn't they!?!). I assumed that as
I didn't have a proper microphone that that was my issue then, but this
camera is USB. I'm kinda stumped as to what to try next. Any ideas ...

The last question in this group about that camera turned out to be a bad
camera and was exchanged for a good one.

The particular problem was with the audio also.

Sorry, I can't help. A new cam can be had pretty cheap.
