Webcam and Mic

  GuZ><0r 23:14 12 Nov 2005

I have a iCam 320 webcam with built in mic. When I installed it everything was fine, but after a few goes the mic stopped working. The webcam still works though. I have also reinstalled the webcam software/ drivers and it worked then stopped again. Does anyone know what the problem could be.

Windows tends to act like it's senile, it loses where it is. Does not matter 98 ME XP or what ever. I think that's the problem you are getting. I have two mice on my 98se comp a USB wireless Optical, and a PS2 wired Optical. When I start the Computer sometimes the Wired does not work. Try removing the Web Cam from USB, then after you start comp plug it in. It will most likely work as it should

The webcam plugs into USB and it is fine on startup but the microphone plugs into the mic jack, so I don't think that will work.
