I've got 4 *** s on my network, 3 x Mikomi (Argos special) and 1 x from
Vimicro Corp. The Mikomi's I can't get working, but the other one which I
paid 10 for at a computer fair (fairs.co.uk) works fine.

What did you do to make it work? I can't get my Intel *** to work, even
though the drivers are installed and it is listed in device manager as

I have a really old USB Logitech *** , and after installing the driver for
it, it does work. However it does not have the same functionality that it
has in Windows XP. For instance, in XP, I can use it to take still pictures
via Explorer. Vista Beta 2 will not let me do that. In XP I could import
into Photoshop a still image straight from the *** via TWAIN or WIA.
The only way I even know the *** does in fact work in Vista Beta 2 is
that it works fine with Windows Live Messenger.

Perhaps the Logitech works better than the Intel *** . Mine is pretty old
so even though MS Vista installs the drivers, they are the same old drivers I
used in WinXP (where they worked fine). They defintitely don't work in
Vista. If anyone has that *** (the CS331) working in Vista, please
respond and let me know. Thanks!

Have you tried installing the drivers by using the 'Haven't got
disk' option when Windows asks you for drivers?

This helped, and worked, for the drivers on my motherboard (sound

Yes, I did try that method, and the drivers installed just as they did when
Vista automatically installed them. The problem is, the drivers don't work,
even though the OS says they are installed and working correctly. I've
uninstalled them, reinstalled them, asked Vista to find current drivers, etc.
The only drivers available (and the ones that Vista installs) are dated
2001. It's no wonder they don't work!

I know what you are saying and how you must feel. I have the same issue and
no solution. Media center on Vista displays the *** fine as does HP's own
QPlay. Any other application does not seem to connect. Strange part was when
I started Live messenger and selected the audio-video config my tv tuner card
was displayed as the *** input--the only one it found. I suppose I could
connect the camcorder to the a/v input on the tuner card and broadcast that

Go to the *** Manufacturer's website, look for your model *** , and see
if they have a Vista Compatible Driver for it.

i cam with friends on msn all the time. Just recently it has stopped working
and the message is that it is either not connected properly or there it is
blocked by another application.

I am working from a laptop and the cam is built into the top of the lid so
it must be blocked by another application.

Can anyone help?
